Warhammer: Vermintide 2 is a game about smashing a large number of rodents for loot, and it’s really good-and it’s got better due to major free expansions over the years. It’s now announcing a new “career” for one of the game’s characters, which doesn’t sound exciting, but it’s only the fourth in the game’s life cycle: for Victor Salzpil, this means New talent trees, new weapon types, and new abilities are basically a new way of playing games.
This profession is called Warrior Priest of Sigmar and more or less does what it says on the tin: Saltzpyre now basically has a huge holy hammer that can add a bit of God’s own revenge to the program. Obviously, it infused the power of sigma, which seemed to involve making things explode.
Martin Wahlund, CEO of Fatshark, tried to surpass Geoff Keighley by making the most boring quotation of this announcement: “We are very happy to launch the fourth new profession for Warhammer: Plague 2, and this time it is Victor Saltzpyre who has won Sigma in the spotlight. Warrior priest.” The mission is complete.
DLC has added new weapons: the Sledgehammer of the Liquidator, the Skeleton Splitting Hammer and the Book of Blessings, both of which sound very fascinating. The career is accompanied by the new voice and look of Saltzpyre, and the promise that you can now dual wield the Skull-Splitter hammer into the hordes of Skaven.
