'Warhammer: Vermintide 2' Sells 500,000 in Less Than a Week
It appears Warhammer: Vermintide 2 is filling the Left 4 Dead sized hole in a lot of people's hearts. Fatshark's sequel has passed more than 500,000 units sold in less than a week. Fans and critics are praising the game for successfully building on the original and its gleefully bloody combat. (I'm playing it myself and it's pretty good.) And that positive word of mouth is apparently translating into sales.
“We are proud and happy that gamers worldwide have taken Warhammer: Vermintide 2 to their hearts,” says Fatshark CEO Martin Wahlund. “500,000 games sold was a milestone that we had, but not less than a week after release.”
Vermintide 2 is a 4-player co-op set in the End Times of the Warhammer universe. It's available now on PC, with PlayStation 4 and Xbox One versions coming soon.
