      Oh shit. How active is the PC base these days? I need to either jump back in or start on console if the PC audience is dead.

        The DLC was a little too pricey for a trio (or pair?) of maps that just rehash other arenas. Without any new characters and with no armor to customize outside aesthetic helmets, the game feels like a hollow action MMO.

        It's weird because I think Vermintide would have been a fantastic action-MMO if I could have customized my Empire knight or soldier. My friends and I wanted to be a cast of Empire dudes killing rats. No one wanted to be the dwarf or the mage.

        A Reiksguard knight, a Knight of the Blazing Sun, a Drakwald foresteer, anything, anything at all. I could have easily been fine with less voice acting with more variety and choice.

      Such a fun game for the 10-15 hours I believe I played it.
