Vermintide Waywatcher

The other week (opens in new tab), Warhammer: Vermintide introduced its Witch Hunter character, who like the rest of them will soon be stabbing up hordes of rats. Vermintide features quite a lot of rats, so he's going to need some help—luckily, wood elf Kerillian seems up to the task.

The 'Waywatcher' is detailed here (opens in new tab): an "enigmatic and sharp sighted" elf, out of her element, good with a bow and double-daggers. She's my kind of character, in other words. Trailer here:

Vermintide is out October 23 (opens in new tab), or 'Ratmas' as it will soon be known.
