Chaos Wastes is the next chapter in the Warhammer: Vermintide 2 story and it’s out now. This new expansion is available for free on Steam. Here’s what you need to know if you’re thinking about diving in.

You’ll be tasked with attempting to reach the Citadel of Eternity. If you want to actually make it there successfully, you’ll need to leave your gear behind. You’ll be equipped with the most basic of gear which will require you to use skills effectively instead of leaning on a maxed out Iron Breaker.

In the accompanying press release, Fatshark CEO Martin Wahlund noted,

“We are excited to invite everyone that owns Warhammer: Vermintide 2 to join us in the Chaos Wastes adventure. The Chaos Wastes expansion is available for free for all players regardless of system.”

New features include Pilgrim’s Coins which are unique coins traded for favor or weapons. Additionally, opening the Chest of Trials will attract enemies. Defeat them and claim a prize. Shrines are also introduced where you can seek favor through Miracles and Boons.

Waystone Altars can be utilized by sacrificing Pilgrim Coins. The more coins you use, the more powerful the weapons will be. Finally, you’ll find several potions on your journey. Be sure to utilize them well for your benefit.

Additionally, Chaos Wastes will include Twitch integration. This will let your audience join the adventure and help you out on your journey.
