Vermintide Xbox One X enhancement update and sequel coming to console

Chris is the captain of the good ship AllGamers, which would explain everything you're seeing here. As well as digging out news and directing all hands to the feature riggings, Chris also finds time to consume all things speedrun and can even understand 70% of what a "half A-press" is.

Previously, Chris was a mercenary for many of the net's biggest game sites, helping their readers understand the convoluted world of digital sports. This culminated in a nomination for esports journalist of the year, and an intense love for the sound of gold dropping out of a dead lane creep.

You can get in touch with Chris to talk about work or the $6million Echo Slam by emailing or finding him on Twitter. Which is a lot easier now that there's a link here.

4K support and Vermintide 2 confirmation, what a week!

Vermintide, Warhammer’s answer to Left 4 Dead, now has a native 4K Xbox One X upgrade, as well as a sequel heading for the console.

Vermintide 2 was originally announced for PC, but developers Fatshark have now confirmed that it will also arrive on PS4 and Xbox One, too.

"Although speculations have been correct all along, today we are happy to start talking more console specifics as the Xbox One and Playstation versions has [sic] been confirmed," said co-founder Martin Wahlund.

PC’s sequel is squarely aimed at Q1 2018, but given the delayed nature of the console announcement we wouldn’t be surprised if there was another month or two after that to wait.

In the meantime, the team has released the Xbox One X upgrade patch to bring native 4K resolutions, darker shadows, smoother framerates and better textures. That’s an all-round improvement to us, and you can see those blacker, bleaker dark times in the video accompanying the announcement:
