Vermintide 2’s next premium career DLC will be the Outcast Engineer role for Bardin Goreksson, the dwarven member of the Ubershriek Five (or four?). Fatshark announced the role on Twitter today and said further details will be forthcoming.
The key art shared along with the tweet shows Goreksson hefting an eight-barreled Gatling gun and wearing a set of intricate, heavy-looking armour clad in gold. The engineer role will be available as a piece of paid DLC, the same way Markus Kruber’s new Grail Knight career was introduced earlier this year.
Fatshark hasn’t yet explained how Bardin’s Outcast Engineer career will work, but we’re keen to make a couple guesses (even if our initial stabs at what this role would be in the first place were slightly off the mark). In the Warhammer lore, Dwarf Engineers are masters of science and gadgetry, constantly trying to invent new implements of destruction for their respective throngs. They spend huge amounts of time as students and apprentices – which both seem to cut a bit against Goreksson’s in-game persona – and are experts with artillery when called to war. During a livestream revealing the career, Fatshark developers explained that they’ve been saying that Goreksson is more of a “self-made engineer,” since technically he hasn’t graduated from any of the dwarven engineering schools.
