Warhammer: Vermintide 2 Coming Soon To Xbox One, Open Beta Available Now
Warhammer: Vermintide 2 launches for Xbox One on July 11, and the Xbox One version's open beta is playable now. The game will be playable through the Xbox One Game Pass as soon as it launches. Developer Fatshark revealed the Xbox One version's release date Wednesday, along with the following trailer.
In a reply to a tweet, Fatshark senior programmer Patrik Wennersten said the Xbox One version does not feature cross-play with the game's PC version, which launched back in March.
Unfortunatly no, we use steam lobbies on pc and the xbox multiplayer architecture on xbox one so they're not compatible— Patrik Wennersten (@fatshark_tazar) June 20, 2018
Fatshark first announced in December 2017 that the Left 4 Dead-inspired co-op action game would be coming to consoles, but this is the first we've heard of a set release date. Fatshark says the PlayStation 4 version is still on its way, but gave no specific dates yet.
Along with the announcement, Fatshark released details for a new "Premium Edition," which includes exclusive in-game content.
