Open beta live today

We are happy that so many of you enjoyed the Vermintide 2 Closed Beta. However, it seems the forces of both the Skaven and Chaos are relentless – meaning we will need more of you before Vermintide 2 launches on Xbox One July 11.

That means we will be expanding our Beta to anyone brave enough – making it open to all! All you have to do to try it out is to download the Vermintide 2 Beta app via the Xbox One Store Page when it launches on June 20, around 18:00 CEST / 09:00 PST.

Watch the livestream

If you’re a new player to the game, we will be hosting a livestream on Mixer and Twitch going through all you need to know before jumping into the game.
