PC-playing fans of critically-acclaimed co-op venture Warhammer: Vermintide 2 are anticipating tomorrow's release of its next chapter, Chaos Wastes, via a free update (with console release TBA). In this update, players are tasked with reaching the elusive Citadel of Eternity - a place said to be found in a region under the influence of the Chaos Gods themselves. And if that’s not frightening enough, well, you also need to start from scratch equipment-wise. So good luck with that.
The location of this new adventure is supposedly revealed through Saltzpyre's own wisdom - if you think you can trust him. As for any other questions, we’ve been given a handy Q&A courtesy of Fatshark's Game Designer, Markus Olsén, whose word we’re pretty sure can be taken as gospel. So fill yourself in below.
The Chaos Wastes expedition game mode supports
And includes the new features:
Is Chaos Wastes a new Vermintide 2 experience?
Chaos Wastes is meant to be a completely different experience compared to our regular missions and the Weaves. It is a journey through which you discover boons of varying power to combat the curses of the chaos gods and best the Wastes. The core of the game will of course stay the same, but the strength of your character will grow dramatically while progressing in your expedition.
What is an expedition?
An Expedition into the Chaos Wastes is a series of Levels and Shrines that conclude with a very challenging level. Players are sometimes presented with a fork in the road with the option to choose their next destination on the expedition map. Completing a full expedition will reward players with a chest.
Is Chaos Wastes for everybody?
The short answer is “Yes”. Chaos Wastes is meant to offer challenges to players of all skill levels. Equipment is not a factor as it will be acquired during your session exploring the wastes. Talents however do keep their effects inside the mode.
Can I play it together with my friends?
Warhammer: Vermintide 2 is a co-op game, and the Chaos Wastes update is no different. Yes, this is how matchmaking works, gear etc. Everyone gets on the same level.
Will there be new weapons?
All our characters have a new weapon available with the Chaos Wastes launch. While the Chaos Wastes is free and available to everybody that owns Vermintide 2, new weapons and cosmetics will be available to purchase.
Where will Chaos Wastes be located in the Keep?
When you enter the Keep, go to the right down the stairs on the opposite side of Lohner’s Store, and there you will find it. This is where the adventure begins.
