Warhammer: Vermintide 2 hits Xbox One on July 11, but you can play now in the open beta


Launching in Xbox Game Pass

It’s nice to finally be able to tell Xbox One players when they can get sucked into Warhammer: Vermintide 2. Fatshark is bringing the co-op first-person melee game to the platform on July 11, but more immediately, there’s an open beta running on Xbox One. You can queue it up right over here.

The beta is expected to run until the final release on July 11, at which point Vermintide 2 will launch regularly and also be available at no extra cost through Xbox Games Pass. The developers hope to have players’ beta progress carry over, “but there’s always a chance this might not be possible.”

As for the PlayStation 4 release, it’s still happening, we just don’t know when.

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again: Vermintide 2 is a great co-op experience for folks who miss the spirit of Left 4 Dead but want something a little different. The melee feels spot on (I love slashing my rapier like a madman as the Witch Hunter), and there’s a meaty loot system to keep you invested.
