From the store page:
The Back to Ubersreik levels cannot be played for free through Quickplay or by joining a game in the lobby browser, unless you own the DLC or join a friend who does.
Before you go crazy, this is how it worked in VT1 and was always thought to be really nice (only one person in the team enables you to play the DLC).
Being able to play the bogenhafen DLC from quickplay meant everyone got to play it (over and over and over and over ) without purchasing it, so apart from the initial sales and sales paired with the base game, they probably aren't making any money from it anymore.
I'll bet once this is released later today, the bogenhafen maps will also no longer be able to be played through QP. Which is great because now I can uninstall it and it should no longer pop up as every
second map in QP.
UPDATE: that's exactly what they did:
Our second DLC brings with it version 1.4, update #43. Which includes plenty of bug fixes and tweaks, three new missions and five new weapons for players who own Back to Ubersreik. Our DLC policy for Vermintide 1 is something that we are very proud of. Players who owned a DLC, could invite their friends along for the ride – not everyone in the party had to be owners. We felt that was a fair deal. But for Vermintide 2, when we released our first DLC “Shadows over Bögenhafen”, we received feedback from our players that, because of how Quickplay works, the value proposition of our DLCs wasn’t all that clear. So for this release, we’re changing how access to DLC missions works. From now on, in order to host a Custom game with a DLC mission, or have that mission be selected for Quickplay – you, or another player in your Keep, will have to own that DLC. Where it was previously possible to join a DLC mission through Quickplay, even if you didn’t own that DLC, from today that won’t be the case. You will have to join a friend who owns it.
These changes also affect the missions from the Shadows over Bögenhafen DLC. We’re in the process of making more finely grained options for random mission selection in Quickplay. In the next major update, planned for January, we will present players the option of playing only certain sets of missions – excluding, or including DLC levels.
