The first major content update for Warhammer: Vermintide 2 was released earlier today. This content update is available for free to all 1 million+ owners of the base game and brings about a bunch of cosmetics, challenges, and quests. An additional bonus just for logging into the game will be awarded if you fire up the game prior to June 2.
With focus on the players, the new Content Update will bring daily challenges and quests. Over 100 new cosmetics including skins, hats, and portrait frames are also added to the game. The Content Update will be available for free to everyone who owns the game, and will be downloaded the next time you log onto Steam.

“Vermintide 2 already challenges the players, but now we amp it up with daily challenges and quests.” says Mats Andersson, Game Designer at Fatshark. “The Content Update will bring exclusive skins, portrait frames and cosmetics for heroes who rise to the challenge.”

In an effort to really drive home just how free this content update is, they're actually calling it the Free Content Update. Like, for real. I sure hope it's free. The new content is also bundled with a new patch, which you can read about after the trailer.

• Extracting Illusions no longer cost scrap. Applying Illusions now cost 10 Scrap. As the previous cost of extracting Illusions cost 20 Scrap, each player will be refunded 10 Scrap per Illusion in their inventory, when they log in.
• Added a new crafting recipe – Convert Dust. You will be able to convert Dust to a lower tier. Ten Blue Dust to ten Green Dust Or ten Orange Dust to ten Blue Dust.
• The confirmation delay when Crafting and Salvaging has been drastically reduced.

• Several Veteran items lack a distinctive textures with glowing runes. We are working on making sure all Veteran items have cool looking skins. In this version, the Veteran Swiftbows “Edrael’s Will”, and “Spite-Tongue” now have their proper runed textures.
• Fixed an issue for the Ranger Veteran Bardin’s talent “Last Stand” which caused the buff to be applied whenever a clip was emptied instead of when completely out of ammo.
• Fixed an issue for the Battle Wizard Sienna’s talent “World Aflame” where the power boost was not applied properly when playing as a client.
• Fixed an issue for the Witch Hunter Captain Satlzpyre’s talent “Necessary Means” where the power boost was not applied properly when playing as a client, when out of ammo.
• Fixed an issue for the Zealot Satlzpyre’s talent “Holy Crusade” where the critical strike power boost was not applied properly when playing as a client.
• Fixed an issue for the Shade Kerillian’s talent “Bloodfletcher” where ammo would not properly be awarded on backstabs.
