PC players can sign up for the chance to participate in the Beta now:

Being the first expansion, Winds of Magic adds the true children of Chaos, aka The Beastmen as the third enemy faction to a roaster currently occupied by the Rotbloods and Clan Fester Skavens. These warp-spawned hybrids of animals and primitive humans will be the toughest enemy faction The Ubersreik Five have ever faced.

One noticeable new addition in the Winds of Magic expansion to Vermintide 2 are the new enemies, but as the title of the expansion hints, it is the Winds that will play a crucial part of the new adventure.

Each Wind of Magic will bring different gameplay to the players. A total of eight winds will confront the players in new and surprising ways, and offer close to an endless difficulty curve to challenge the toughest of the Vermintide 2 heroes. This includes the heroes confronting different challenges, mutators, and horde after horde of enemies in existing, yet remixed version of the current maps. Your goal in each Weave is to complete a specific task. Once the objective has been completed, a portal will open to an arena where players must survive a final showdown.

  • New Enemy Faction: Beastmen – As grotesque hybrids of humans and beasts the Beastmen have the intelligence of a man and the cunning of wild animals. These savage warriors embrace Chaos willingly and will show no compassion or nobility. With profound malice for order and reason, these Children of Chaos want to end the world in bloody carnage.
  • New Higher Difficulty
  • Raised Level Cap
  • 5 New Weapons – One for each hero
    – Kerillian has a shield and spear.
    – Sienna can swing her flames with a flaming flail.
    – Bardin has a new set of throwing axes.
    – Saltzpyre now has a billhook.
    – Kruber can use heavy spear.
  • New Adventure Level – Fight the mighty and strong Beastmen together with your friends in a challenging new level.
  • New Game Mode: Winds of Magic – Bring your friends and try to complete a new set of challenges with increasing difficulties in the weaves of the eight Winds of Magic.

    The winds of magic are made up of different “weaves” and will be a combination of:
    – Map: A chunk of an existing adventure map.
    – Wind: The different Winds of Magic will affect and modify the map.
    – Objective: Each map will have a specific objective for players to complete.
    – Finale: If the objective is completed the players will face the final challenge.
    – Difficulty: As players progress the difficulty will increase.
