I’m a huge fan of the Vermintide games and I’m having a blast in Vermintide 2, especially the game has been developed in the direction I hoped for, more enemy factions and active/passive skills. However, despite the fun my game buddies and I are having in V2, there is no way to avoid the frustrations related to the game’s stability. We have all different hardware, but none of us can avoid game crashes, either due to the game freezing, crashing or the point where the GPU’s driver stops responding and crashes. It is especially frustrating when a crash happens to the host, as it wipes the map progress for all players.
Similarly over time we discovered a lot of gameplay bugs I would also not expect from a game post launch, abilities which don’t work, bugging out enemy AI, getting stuck in geometry (admittedly I did not manage this since the open beta, possibly because I stay away from problematic areas).
I want to be clear about this, I love the game and I do appreciate Fatshark is neither an experience or large developer, but please don’t get into a habit of releasing half baked titles, which feel like late close beta phase in the terms of the game’s code quality. The state of the game won’t make a great impression to the new players and even some veterans are getting fed up.
Could we get some kind of world map / timeline aknowledging that you are working of specific issues and how Fatshark is planning to address these?
