A Versus mode is coming to Warhammer: Vermintide 2. This mode allows players to take the role of the enemy and go head-to-head against the heroes.

Through the Versus mode, players get the chance to experience some 4v4 gameplay. In a statement by Fatshark CEO Martin Wahlund, the game has always focused on the hero, but with the new Versus mode, players are now able to control enemy factions. He added that this game mode is a truly competitive one where “two separate teams of four players take turns playing as the enemies and heroes.”

To celebrate this announcement, the base game, Warhammer: Vermintide 2, is being offered at a 60% discount on Steam until tomorrow, June 12.

In addition to the new Versus mode, players can also look forward to the upcoming Winds of Magic expansion. The expansion is scheduled to be released in August. This is the first expansion of the game and offers a new enemy faction along with new challenges.
