If you preorder now at major retailers (such as Steam Store), you can secure a quick and easy way to try out the prelaunch beta – which has been live since last Friday on October 16th. (The developer has noted that the current playable version is still a beta which does not reflect the upcoming launch version).
If you like what you’ve been seeing on streams and Let’s Play videos, the best deal for End Times – Vermintide would be at popular digital retailer Green Man Gaming. At GMG, they retain the 10% preorder discount which is available at all authorized digital retailer, but as an extra bang for your buck – you can stack an additional 20% off coupon ontop of the Steam copy of End Times – Verminitide:

Fans of Warhammer universe will especially appreciate the game as it depicts the universe in a detailed environment plus of course excellent lore.
As with all games these days, there’s a digital collector’s edition available with lots more perks and bonuses. In digital bonus, you’ll receive the official soundtrack, a digital copy of the ubersreik map, Vermintide wallpapers, an excellent behind-the-scenes pack with concept arts, lore documents, and development footage.
For in-game items, you’ll receive a four unique headpieces: from candlelight guard, “Dal Grimazul,” hat of purifying light, and ironside helmet. Finally two unique trinkets are also included in the digital collector’s edition.
To be frank we’re not sure if the in-game bonuses are worth the extra money, but if you’re a big Warhammer fan and you enjoy additional content in terms of lore, a look at development process, the extra $10 may be worth the cost of admission.
