Warhammer Vermintide 2 Beta Live Now on Xbox One, Full Game Due on July 11th
The Warhammer Vermintide 2 beta is available now to everyone on Xbox One. You can download it from the Microsoft Store.
Swedish developer Fatshark also announced that the full game will be available on July 11th. Xbox Game Pass subscribers will be happy to know that the Standard Edition will be included on launch day; a Premium Edition is also available for purchase, priced at $45.
Martin Wahlund, CEO at Fatshark, said:
After the huge success with the release of Warhammer: Vermintide 2 on PC, we are happy and excited to bring the game to Xbox One. We can’t wait to stick it to the Skaven and Chaos on another platform.
Warhammer Vermintide 2 on Xbox One runs at native 4K resolution and includes Mixer integration. The game sold very well on PC since its debut earlier this year and it will be interesting to see whether it can replicate that level of success on consoles as well.
