10 million people grabbed Vermintide 2 while it was free

With the release of Warhammer 40,000: Darktide just weeks away, and the original Vermintide turning seven in October, developer Fatshark has been celebrating with an event called 7 Years of Tide (opens in new tab). It began with a Vermintide 2 giveaway, with the co-op fantasy Chaos hunt free to keep from November 3–7 on Steam. As Fatshark boasts in its latest news post (opens in new tab)10 million people claimed a copy during that period, which made the four-year-old tribute to Left 4 Dead bounce back into the top 10 of Steam’s most played games by daily players (opens in new tab).

Though the giveaway has ended, Fatshark’s celebration hasn’t. The first half of a free DLC called A Treacherous Adventure is live now, adding a new map called Trail of Treachery. It’s a snowy mountain pass you need to escort a caravan through as they carry a warding stone to the village of Tockstadt, where the second half of A Treacherous Adventure will presumably be set. Watch out for avalanches, and hordes of skaven.
