Warhammer Vermintide 2 - Winds of Magic is available now on Steam.

A press release describes the expansion thusly,

“The first expansion for Warhammer: Vermintide 2 brings a brand new enemy faction and new challenges to the game. As a meteor crashes down in the Reikland, the Beastmen rush to the epicenter to claim it as a Herdstone. It is up to the five heroes to stop them before a dreadful disaster strikes the Empire.”

Martin Wahlund, COE of Fatshark, described his excitement of launch day for any product,

“Release day is the most exciting day in game development, and here we are today. Warhammer: Vermintide 2 - Winds of Magic is available now, ready for heroes to excel. Winds of Magic would not have been possible without the feedback from our beta tests, and we want to thank all beta players who helped us deliver the best version of Winds of Magic." 

As for the actual winds of magic, they’re comprised of several “weaves” and will be a combination of,
  • Map: A chunk of an existing adventure map.

  • Wind: The different Winds of Magic will affect and modify the map. 

  • Objective: Each map will have a specific objective for players to complete.

  • Finale: If the objective is completed the players will face the final challenge.

  • Difficulty: As players progress the difficulty will increase.
