Indie developer Fatshark have proudly announced that their recently released (as in last week) title Warhammer: Vermintide 2 has already sold over 500,000 copies on PC.

The first-person action-adventure sees a band a warriors, the Heroes of Ubersreik, battle the Chaos army and the Rotbloods, a clan made-up of hordes of rodent-like fighters. Vermintide 2 adds new features to the mix through its improved career mode, new talent trees and the all new "Heroic Deeds" system: a selection of condition-based quests.

In a press release, the Swedish developer spoke of their happiness of the title's rapid success. "We are proud and happy that gamers worldwide have taken Warhammer Vermintide to their hearts," says Fatshark CEO Martin Wahlund. "500,000 games sold was a milestone that we had, but not less than a week after release."

Warhammer: Vermintide 2 is available now on PC. PS4 and Xbox One ports are expected  to follow later this year.
