    Interesting to see they dropped End Times from the subtitle. Also, let's hope for more than just Skaven this time around.

    The first game was pretty cool but was severely hampered by the existence of loot. Sperglords who only cared about loot would only run the same easy 2 maps ad infinitum while the remaining maps (especially the larger, cooler and more difficult ones) almost never got played. I'm not sure if they added an incentive of some sort to run them (i.e. rarer or better loot being exclusive to those maps), but I stopped caring. The goal of the game should have been to beat the levels, not to get the fucking loot.

    I think the game would have been much better served by having been allowed to stand on its own legs and the strengths of its level design, and not having any sort of character progression or loot at all, but apparently that's impossible these days.

    I have no positive hopes for the sequel. They'll probably double down on the retarded loot and possibly add loot boxes. Fuck 'em.

    I'd love it if they just hastily rebranded Space Hulk.

    Game is ruined by its own MP nature. Pubbies are too stupid to be of any help and really being efficient as a group requires autism.

    Loot system ruined an otherwise mediocre L4D clone.

    Ugh idk wtf is up with all the min/max wanna-be twitch MLGers in multiplayer games these days. Things didn't use to be this way then all of a sudden kids are bragging about how they spent $100 on a knife skin in csgo or whatever.

    I would've preferred brand new characters over specializations, but hey. At least we get Chaos.

    BTW it's also part of this bundle, along with Warhammer 40,000: Space Wolf, Tempest, Dungeon Lords, Impossible Creatures and others.

    I had quite a lot of fun with the first one, but there's no denying it got old fast once you've run the maps a few times and after 70-odd hours I've not really got any compulsion to play it again. If it's 75% off I'd say it's a good deal for someone that likes co-op MP shooters, but be prepared to play the maps that have people running them, rather than the maps you might want to run.

    I wonder if they've solved the basic problem of making the game about the loot for completing the maps, but yet giving people not enough reward for completing the hard maps so most pugs just run the easy ones over and over? I watched a bit of the stream but from what I saw it's just more of the same but with different maps and mobs. Did they give any info on the loot system?

    I'd buy it if they had scrapped the shitty loot, but instead they've doubled down on it. No deal.

    Well I tried free Vermintide and I had fun.
    I mean its still Warhammer setting and you kill rats so it must be fun - and actually it is.
    But even newbie me can see that loot system is really retarded and its best when you play with some friends.
    Its fun enough to worth getting cheap.
    Did I mention retarded loot system?
    I also do not see point making 2nd part on killing chaos scum. I mean Chaos? Anything with chaos=not fun.
    Why not greenskins?
    anything with greenskins=fun

    After the lackluster "success" of Deathwatch, I fear we won't see another Space Marine "FPS" for some time.

    I think Space Marine itself did pretty well though. I hold onto hope... :badnews:

    I'd love a proper single player focussed Space Marine II, but I fear that no one's asking me for my opinion ;)
