Vermintide Lights Things Up With the Pyromancer

We recently brought you news about Warhammer End Times: Vermintide back in June, and the developers of this promising looking Left 4 Dead with Skaven title certainly haven’t been standing still in the meantime. They broke the latest class offering this week with the announcement of the Bright Wizard, the Empires very own magical arsonist.

In the world of Warhammer magic is a unpredictable and chaotic force in the world, leaving each race to tackle it in their own way. For the Empire (the owners of the city of UbersReik, where the rat-men are invading) this is by sending all magically inclined youths to the colleges of magic. Each college represents a different school and focuses on a particular area. It doesn’t take much imagination to work out that the Bright Wizards specialise in Pyromancy, or the control of flame. This makes them potentially devastating on the hectic battlefield of Vermintide as a well-timed blaze of righteous fire may be all that stands between a party and awful, rodent-infused death.

Check out the screens below for some hints to how the Bright Wizard might play in-game, and as always keep it here with us for the latest news on this promising-looking title.
