The Warhammer: End Times – Vermintide Schluesselschloss and Last Stand DLC is out!

3 min read

Warhammer End Times - Varmantide

I’ve not yet played Warhammer: End Times – Vermintide, but by all means, I should’ve by now. The game looks like the love child of Left 4 Dead, Dark Messiah of Might and Magic, and Killing Floor – which basically means it’s guaranteed to be all sorts of fun.

It must be, because I have a friend who won’t shut up about it. He keeps asking me whether I’ve bought it or not. No, I haven’t damn it. THERE’S JUST TOO MUCH PRESSURE NOW!

Anyways, mental breakdown aside, if you already own Vermintide, and are looking for more rats to murder, today just so happens to be your lucky day. The game has just received two bits of DLC – one paid, and one free (via VG247).


Just try to say that name, I dare you. Shloo-sell-shloss? Shlay-sells-ch-loss? Skloo-essel-kloss? I DON’T KNOW! Whatever it is, it’s the paid DLC for Vermintide. It’ll cost R35:

Trapped in the fortress of Schluesselschloss, our heroes are forced into an inevitable stand-off against Skaven hordes. With no hope of escape, how long can they withstand before they finally fall?

Schluesselschloss unlocks The Fall, a stunning new map for the The Last Stand game mode. Set outside Ubersreik, the fortress of Schluesselschloss guards the city and is perched on top of the roaring waters of the Teufel river. If it wasn’t for the oncoming hordes of Skaven, it would seem like an idyllic destination.

What’s nice about this DLC is that you don’t actually need to own it to play it. If a friend has purchased it, you can join their game and defend Schluesselschloss for free!

Last Stand

The Last Stand DLC is the free DLC and, well, is basically what its name implies. Here’s an overview:

The Skaven are attacking in large numbers and Ubersreik stands undefended. The only thing standing between total defeat or glorious victory is your ability to survive against countless waves of the Skaven horde.

Last Stand is a Survival game mode with the goal of defending your position on a smaller map. Enemies will come in “waves” and increase in both difficulty and tactical strength for each wave.


And there you have it! DLC for everybody, both rich and poor. Will you be grabbing either or both?

Also, should I be playing Vermintide? It does genuinely look like a lot of fun!

Defence of the Ancients? More like Defence of the cabbages! Have you seen my head? I look like a Merino Sheep on pole. NO SHANGE only SHAPPIES! :D

  • Commander Admiral Chief

    R35? Lekker man!

  • Alien Emperor Trevor

    Are you some kind of heretical Skaven-supporting cabbage? It’s VERMINtide. Skaven=Rats=Vermin. Vermantide indeed. Are you trying to call humanity the plague? Someone needs a swift visit from a witch hunter.

    • Which witch hunter?

      • Alien Emperor Trevor

        The last one…

        • Do you have a vin number for that?

          • Alien Emperor Trevor

            Yes, 1337!

          • Not xXx?

          • Alien Emperor Trevor

            That’s not a number, do you even Arabic numerals?

          • That would be taking advantage of rabics!

        • Captain JJ the Isolated

          He should know, he’s from the southern suburbs ;P

          • You shut it! You don’t even seem to remember where that is what with constant no shows!

          • Captain JJ the Isolated

            But I’ll see you at rAge? I’ll even bring my wife. I know you guys prefer her to me anyway (I don’t blame you).

          • Alien Emperor Trevor

            Why do you think we invite you? I mean… um…. that’s not true. Tell him, Rince.

          • But for once you speak the truth. I mean 0_O

          • Captain JJ the Isolated


          • SORRY! The truth will out!

          • Alien Emperor Trevor

            Even a broken watch tells the truth twice a day.

          • But you’re not broken, you’re slow *runs

          • Alien Emperor Trevor

            That would explain why listening to you talk sounds like forever.

          • And why you are WRONG all the TIME! Tehehe!

          • Alien Emperor Trevor

            No I’m not, I just have a unique perspective.

          • This is true. I’ll be there on the Friday only though (atm).

    • hairyknees

      Wow… sorry about that. I wrote VermAntide in the title when I first wrote the article (typo). I kept making sure I had it spelt just like that throughout the rest of content XD oops! Has all been fixed 🙂 thanks!

      • Alien Emperor Trevor

        I see through you!

  • Captain JJ the Isolated

    Don’t tempt me!!
    I want this game SOOOOOO badly, but my wallet and I are currently not speaking to one another.

  • Captain JJ the Isolated

    Cabbage. If you buy it I will feel forced to buy it :/
    Be strong!

  • Kak safe word, Matty.

    • Guild

      XD is it bad that I know what schluesselschloss is and that I can pronounce it no problems?
