Vermintide 2's new Versus mode lets you take up arms as the rats and Rotbloods

With so many cruel tricks up their sleeve, Vermintide 2's Skaven and Rotblood enemies are easy to hate. But now you don't have to just hate them, you can play as them. During the PC Gaming Show, developer Fatshark revealed Vermintide 2's new Versus mode that pits two teams of four against each other: One team plays as the Ubersreik 5 heroes from the main game while the other takes up arms as the specialist Skaven and Chaos enemies and even their ultra-powerful bosses. "Each game includes one round playing as the enemies, and one playing as the heroes. In the end the winner is the hero team that progressed the furthest through the mission," Fatshark CEO Martin Wahlund told me.
