Warhammer: Vermintide 2 came out on PC on March 8, 2018. Maybe you’ve never heard of it.

Killing the player is easy. Games do this all the time, often by surprising them with something unexpected and lethal or by simply ramping up the difficulty and pummelling them into submission.

I'm not kidding.
