Warhammer: Vermintide's Dwarf Ranger lives up to all the stereotypes

Dwarf Ranger

Bardin *re-checks spelling* Goreksson is Warhammer: Vermintide's (opens in new tab) dwarf character, which means he has a big beard, loves a drink, and almost exclusively wields Dwarven weapons like axes, hammers and I guess crossbows. Here's Fatshark (opens in new tab) relaying *re-rechecks spelling* Bardin Goreksson's rich backstory, and also which armaments he prefers to use. I like the sound of the Grudge-Raker gun, which "erupts a hail of shot, capable of blasting numerous enemies at close range".

Fatshark's multiplayer FPS is out well soon (like, October 23 soon), and we have one more character video to go before then. Until the wizard is detailed next week, here's a trailer showing the game's shouty, beardy dwarf in action. (Ta, PCGamesN (opens in new tab).)

Tom loves exploring in games, whether it’s going the wrong way in a platformer or burgling an apartment in Deus Ex. His favourite game worlds—Stalker, Dark Souls, Thief—have an atmosphere you could wallop with a blackjack. He enjoys horror, adventure, puzzle games and RPGs, and played the Japanese version of Final Fantasy VIII with a translated script he printed off from the internet. Tom has been writing about free games for PC Gamer since 2012. If he were packing for a desert island, he’d take his giant Columbo boxset and a laptop stuffed with PuzzleScript games.
