The sequel, similarly to the first game in the series, was developed by Fatshark, the creators of games like War of the Vikings and Krater.
In the first entry in the series the brave heroes fought Skavens in the city of Ubersreik. Warhammer: Vermintide 2 for PC, PS4 and XONE takes place in Helmgart – a stronghold city located near the border of Bretonnia. There the players must face rat-like creatures and the forces of Chaos. If the player fails, the empire will fall as well.

It is a brutal action game focused mostly on melee combat, in which player uses various swords or spears. During the game he or she can also use ranged weapons like crossbows. The gameplay is focused on cooperation between players. Up to four players can play together. They assume the roles of various characters with different abilities.

The developers improved the loot system. After each mission the players are awarded with various rewards, including weapons and materials that are useful in crafting. Heroic Deeds is one of the novelties – it features unique scenarios in which enemy forces, surroundings, weapons and mission objectives are changed.
