Winds of Magic is the title of a large expansion to Warhammer: Vermintide 2 - a multiplayer action game from 2018. The independent studio named Fatshark is resposible for the development of these productions.

Plot

A new hostile faction appears in Warhammer: Vermintide 2 - Winds of Magic: the Beastmen. They are trying to find a meteorite that fell in Reikland to turn it into their herdstone. It is, of course, up to the main characters to stop them.

Mechanics

In Warhammer: Vermintide 2 - Winds of Magic players will face the Beastmen, the most dangerous of which are the Bestigors - elite units that will charge at heroes and knock back anyone who stands in their way (including their own brothers and sisters). In addition, five new weapons have been added to our arsenal (one for each protagonist) and the limit on experience levels was raised. Veterans can also try out a new difficulty level.

Game modes

The biggest novelty, besides the new race, introduced in Warhammer: Vermintide 2 - Winds of Magic is an additional game mode, called the Winds of Magic. The game takes place here in slightly altered locations from the original, and in them we face a number of increasingly difficult challenges known as Weaves. You can boast of your achievements through the online ranking system.

In the Winds of Magic there are various tasks waiting to be performed on the consecutive maps (e.g., killing a specific number of opponents of a certain type or defending control points). When we manage to complete these challenges, we can cross a portal leading to a special arena, where the final stage takes place; after the fight is done, we can attempt to beat the mode once again.

In each such Weave there are different modifiers based on the titular Winds of Magic. One of them is named Jade Wind, and causes the heroes' health to regenerate automatically, but take damage each time they carry out an attack.

Technical aspects

Winds of Magic is not a standalone expansion, meaning it requires the vanilla version of the game in order to run.
