In this dev blog, Vermintide 2’s Design Director, Joakim, talks about the takeaways and solves that Fatshark learned from the Versus Closed Alpha Test.

Greetings Heroes and Pactsworn alike,

My name is Joakim and I’m the Design Director for Vermintide 2. In this dev blog, I want to look at some findings from the Versus Closed Alpha Test and give you an update on the state of Versus.

To kick this off I want to extend our deepest gratitude to all of you who participated in the Closed Alpha Test. From a developer standpoint, it is always a scary feeling putting things out to you players for initial impressions, but we came out of this with the feeling of overwhelming success. You seemed ...

Bit late, but console is not abandoned, not at all! This issue in OP is already fixed and compensation was rolled out to users, for instance, and more content is coming out for console for sure, alongside any regular updates and fixes.

Regarding Versus and console, we’ll have a dev blog coming out sometime soon that will touch on this subject.

We can’t publicly say any dates for now but we honestly don’t expect this to take too long and we definitely won’t be keeping you guys waiting for months or anything like that. That’s about all I can say without getting in trouble at the moment :sweat_smile:

Unfortunately due to a few technical issues we are going to have to delay the Versus Closed Alpha Test, and thus also delay the Stream that was scheduled for today.

We are sure to still hold a test and will update you all with the new dates as soon as possible!

I know we said we wouldn’t be responding to any questions for now and leave them all for the future when we’re ready to talk more, but! We had to nip some rumors in the bud elsewhere, so we’ll make an exception and confirm this:

Versus will have its own separate balancing from the other game modes: if something is problematic in Versus specifically, then it will be changed for Versus specifically.

In case you missed it on our stream, we can confirm we’re still working on Versus!

We can’t reveal anything right now, but feel free to drop questions here and we’ll be looking into them when we’re ready to answer them :smiley:

I’m afraid we can’t say anything regarding what the update will or will not contain until we reveal more news :pray:

OH! That makes more sense, I apologize, I misunderstood!

The answer is…!
Schedule-plans are still on track, yes yes.

Schedules are still on track, yes-yes! Just to clarify, though, we are currently in November.

Hedge is no longer working at Fatshark, I’m afraid!

Regarding support for Linux (and the Steam deck) I’m afraid that our stance so far is that we have no official support and that we can’t afford to focus resources on adding that support. It’s possible that we revisit this stance in the future, but we can’t make any promises.

For anyone who wanted to compete for one of the vinyls, as a heads up, Instagram seems to have blocked the hashtag, so please use Twitter or TikTok instead! Updated the main post to reflect this.
