As a first-person action role-playing game, Warhammer: Vermintide 2 is quite different from most of the videogames based on the tabletop miniature game from Games Workshop, which tend to be categorized in the strategy genre. With frenetic action, plenty of monsters to kill and several heroes to choose from, each of them with its own gameplay style, skills, and weapons, Warhammer: Vermintide 2 offers a more direct approach to the conflict between order and chaos in the Old World.

The game has been available for a while already, and it received an update yesterday that marks the start of its second season, which comes with new content and several new features.

The update adds the first chapter of The Curse of Drachenfels – Old Haunt, a new mission that will have Warhammer: Vermintide 2 players visit the old fortress to investigate the disappearance of several villagers. As you navigate through the narrow corridors of the old fortress in the Grey Mountains, you will have to face a familiar yet dangerous threat, a plague of Skaven. You will have to discover the reason that drives those evil creatures to that location and try to stop them before they become a bigger problem.

Season 2 also brings a new currency to Warhammer: Vermintide 2. You will earn Shillings by completing daily and weekly quests, and you can spend them buying cosmetic items in the new shop that Lohner has put up in the keep. Developer Fatshark has also added premium cosmetic items that you can buy with real money as a way of getting some extra income to fund future free content.

The update also brings some changes to Quick-Play Waves, separating the queues in five different difficulties and adding the possibility of playing with bots in this mode. The essence rewards that you get from completing them have been increased too.

All those features have already been implemented and all the players that own Warhammer: Vermintide 2 on PC have access to them for free.
