Warhammer: Vermintide 2 will launch on PC on March 8, developer Fatshark announced today.

The sequel to well-received co-op melee action game Warhammer: End Times – Vermintide, Vermintide 2 is set within the dark End Times, during the destruction of the World That Was.

It introduces the dark, bloody and twisted Chaos as a formidable and unrelenting enemy faction, and features 15 hero careers, new environments, talent trees and the proprietary Heroic Deeds System.

"Being passionate fans of the Warhammer IP, we’ve always wanted to create a Warhammer sequel that both stayed true to the beautifully dark atmosphere of the world but also brought new ideas and experiences for players," said Fatshark CEO Martin Wahlund.

Warhammer: End Times – Vermintide launched on PC in October 2015, and then made its way to Xbox One and PlayStation 4 a year later.
