Warhammer: Vermintide 2’s update 2.2 brings the Blood in Darkness chapter

Warhammer: Vermintide 2 has had a new update released for it on PC today with patch 2.2 adding the next chapter of The Curse of Drachenfels. This chapter is called Blood in Darkness and is made up of three missions. The update has also added new cosmetics to Lohner’s Emporium, and a number of fixes have been applied. These fixes include addressing a number of points where crashes would occur including joining sessions on Weaves, or when players get healed as they are leaving a game. There are some other changes like not being able to switch maps when a vote is occurring, and some respawn issues on some levels have been fixed as well.

The full patch notes can be found below:
