If for some reason, you have Vermintide 2 not downloaded to your gaming device, I suggest you reinstall it. Vermintide 2 Chaos Wastes came out today, and it is free to download for anyone who owns the game. Get ready to join the fight again in a world of chaos, but this time you won’t be as well prepared as you are used to.
What is Chaos Wastes?
Chaos Wastes is a new expansion for Vermintide 2, where you are forced to venture down a path with the bare minimum. Your goal is to make it to the Citadel of Eternity with only some basic weapons and armor. Don’t worry; you will encounter gear upgrades along the way as you pick your path to the Citadel of Eternity. At the beginning of each run, you will get to choose your difficulty. Once you have begun your journey, you will have to fight swarms of vermin to continue your quest. With each level you make it past, the more you will get in terms of upgrades for you or your team. The main goal is to make it to the Citadel of Eternity, a place of rumors said to be in a region influence by the Chaos Gods.
New Features for Chaos Wastes
Pilgrim Coins will be your currency that you must spend wisely on your journey. You will find Pilgrim coins throughout each level that you can spend on weapons or godly upgrades to help you fight the swarms of enemies. Just make sure not to spend your pilgrim coins all in one place. You will need them further down the road.
Chest of Trials
If you thought fighting off swarms of vermin wasn’t enough, throw in a boss fight in the middle of it all. Along your journey, you may come across the Chest of Trials. Once activated, get ready for a monstrous foe to appear. There has to be a reason for this, though, right? Of course, there is; after successfully defeating this foe, you will be rewarded handsomely.
Shrines are where the upgrade system comes into effect. After completion of each level, you will have your choice at the shrines. You will be able to choose between Miracles and Boons. Once you have made your selection, the Gods will bless you with abilities to help you along the way. Just remember favors from the Gods always come at a cost, so you must be willing to sacrifice something in return.
Waystone Altars are where you will end up spending most of your pilgrim coins. These Altars hold weapons from previous pilgrims. The more expensive the weapon, the more powerful it will be. This is why I told you to spend your coins wisely. You never know when you’re going to come across a Waystone Altar holding the Holy Grail of weapons.
Don’t be afraid to use up your potions on the run to the Citadel of Eternity. Potions are scattered across each level, and there is plenty to go around for you and your crew. The more potions you use, the better chance you have at surviving the Chaos Wastes. So potion up, collect some coins and join the fight to find the Citadel of Eternity.
Even though Vermintide 2 is a four-player game, Fatshark has found a way to add one more player into the game. Your Twitch community can join the fray as they help you along the way with Twitch Integration. A system that will give your community the ability to vote on what happens next on your journey to the Citadel of Eternity.
Vermintide 2 Chaos Wastes is available on PC for FREE!!! Like I said at the beginning of this post, go and redownload it and get the squad back together. Trust me; you won’t be disappointed in this game mode. It is loads of fun.
