In Vermintide 2, unlike the Prequel, the player slips into the role of the imperial soldier Markus Kruber. He is transported in a mobile prison past a huge portal of the Skaven, the Skittergate. However, this has a malfunction and partially collapses in an explosion. Parts of the explosion also release the prison from its anchorage and Kruber can free himself. From this moment on the player learns the basic mechanics of the game. From moving, to dodging, blocking and healing, the tutorial will illuminate these mechanics shortly. Furthermore the other heroes will introduce themselves step by step... In the prologue I had to smile thanks to a Reddit post, which sees Fatshark's side blows in the way the heroes are introduced.
