Warhammer: End Times - Vermintide, a new cooperative first-person shooter/melee action game set in the End Times of Warhammer, will launch in the second half of 2015 on PC, Xbox One and PS4, Swedish developer Fatshark has announced.

In Vermintide, the city of Ubersreik is under siege as players select from a band of five heroes with different play-styles and abilities, each one equipped with unique gear and personalities.

Players will need to work together in order to survive an apocalyptic invasion from hordes of relentless, power hungry Skaven.

"Combining gritty combat with cooperative multiplayer action, Vermintide will provide the player with a completely new perspective of the Warhammer Fantasy universe, through the eyes of the heroes they play," said Martin Wahlund, CEO of Fatshark.

"Staying true to the fantasy lore, with familiar foes and locations, we look forward to winning the hearts of enthusiasts and newcomers with this new take on the Warhammer story."

Fatshark previously developed Bionic Commando Rearmed 2 and last year's horror spin-off Escape Dead Island.
