Developer Update - April 3 - Play with the Devs!

Heroes!

Welcome to another Developer Update! We’re still all working from home for the time being. We’re getting to know our new co-workers as we interfere with their normal operating procedures and invade their normal working environments.

This week some folks expected an April Fool gag from us, as would be tradition, but we decided that in keeping with the general sentiment that now is not the time for fake news, we would hold off. It’s something we can keep in our pocket for next year all the same, and we’ve had plenty of giggles in the past with some light hearted pranks, some of which ended up being true, either through implementation by the team (in the case of Bar Brawl) or through the hard work of modders like Grimalackt and Zaphio (Deathwish and Mute Kerillian, respectively). If you want a reminder of all our past Vermingags, then look no further:

At the moment, we’re busy working away on some of the final steps for us to be able to reveal details on Season 3 and what’s to come. We’ve also been working to bring you something a bit different to keep you all busy whilst you may be stuck in the house, and hope to be able to show you all of that in the next developer update.

Keeping with (recent) tradition, at 2pm UTC today the Sharks will be invading the Quick Play queues in Vermintide 2. We’ll cover all platforms so look out for those Shark teeth portrait frames. We’re likely to be found in various difficulties as we’re sharks of varying capabilities!

That’s it from us. Not a juicy one this week, but soon no doubt!

Take care!

Is that dog’s name seriously “Monstertruck face”?
I just imagine some dude screaming his name in a park…

It would be cool to hear some more Versus news. The last Versus Dev Blog was all the way back at the end of October, and I’d love to hear if the beta could be any closer.

Every workplace should have a Sceptism Officer (although you probably have enough in this community already -_-) and also a Soul-Staring Supplier. Honestly, who is responsible for those pet names O.o

Also:

Way to tease -_-

I hope Lohner has raided some outfit warehouse and season 3 is the Fashion season!

Wait what? Season 3 news? :weary: I just finished 1/3 of Season 2 stuff…
How are “normal” people suppose to finish all this in such a small amount of time next to weeklies and daylies? :scream:

We’re not quite ready to talk about it, which certainly means we’re not quite ready to release it, so no panic!

Wait. I am pretty sure Sweden is in the same or very similar timezone to Germany. Are you working after midnight?

Can’t sleep for fear that Zombie will eat your soul?

Where did you get that idea?

@Fatshark_Hedge Is there a dev update planned for tomorrow or is Långfredag getting in the way of that?

We’ll get something out!
