Warhammer: Vermintide 2 won't have any paid loot boxes

  • Warhammer Vermintide II Revealed with First Gameplay, Features and More

Following a tease back in August, Fatshark revealed the sequel to its popular co-op game Warhammer Vermintide, aptly titled Warhammer Vermintide II. One thing that the studio was adamant on getting across is that the only Chaos here is the faction, as the game will "NOT" have loot boxes.

Even if the items in the loot boxes can be earned through grinding or if they only contain cosmetics, players are getting exhausted of them and the fact that a game they bought does not come with all its content, these boxes have gone from just being somewhere in the background to being intrusive.

For the unfamiliar, Warhammer: Vermintide 2 was announced earlier this week. It was during the official reveal of Warhammer: Vermintide 2 that Fatshark took their stance in this hot debate.

For now, we have a nice gameplay trailer for Vermintide 2 to enjoy. And developer Fatshark promises the sequel's loot system won't require real-world cash, either. "Loot comes from gameplay, not your wallet".

Wahlund also discussed Vermintide 2's cast of returning playable characters, new potential career paths, and what would be changing from the first game. In the original, for instance, "you are given loot dice at the end of a mission that will reward you and your team mates with a weapon, a hat or a trinket".

Warhammer: Vermintide 2 (now without the "End Times" subtitling, thankfully) is available for pre-purchase now on Steam, and expected to be out in the first quarter of 2018.
