A look at some of the best Warhammer games, old and new.

1) Warhammer: End Times- Vermintide

Warhammer Endtimes : Vermintide gameplay

Winning a host of gaming awards, Warhammer: End Times – Vermintide proved to be one of the greatest PC releases of 2015. The game is a co-operative dark fantasy action game, pitting teams of players against endless hordes of the Warhammer world’s most insidious race, the Skaven. Players have to combine teamwork and determination in order to survive, or else be lost between the game’s eponymous tide mangy fur and flashing teeth.

Vermintide provides variety in nearly every aspect of its gameplay, giving players access to five different classes of hero, each with their own set of skills and equipment. The game also has thirteen different maps, each exploring a different location of the Warhammer world, even the Under-Empire of the Skaven themselves. Players will have to learn these maps well to navigate through them, as the Skaven will be able to spawn from countless points, leaving no room for adventurers to find any form of shelter.

Lore rich locations await players in Vermintide

Vermintide is, primarily, a multiplayer action game, allowing groups of up to four players to explore multiple locations within Warhammer Fantasy lore. As they walk the streets, bathed in the witch-light of the chaos moon Morrslieb, they will have to work together to survive the coming onslaught of Skaven warriors.

Players will have to travel through many sewers and caverns to reach the heart of Skaven schemes.

The Skaven are an insidious foe, not only appearing in great numbers but in a variety of forms, each more horrific as the last. Above, a player stands his ground against an approaching Rat Ogre, a creature made from the flesh-smiths of the Under-Empire.

Finally, after many years, gamers are getting the opportunity to see the worlds and characters of Warhammer brought to life in a range of different games. From strategy, to action, to other, less definable genres, the PC collection of Warhammer games will likely continue to grow over time. There’s still a lot of ground to cover in the expansive lore, and future games will no doubt further expand the franchise’s burgeoning fanbase.
