During today’s The Game Awards broadcast, Fatshark introduced the first gameplay of Warhammer 40,000: Darktide.
Basically, this is Warhammer: Vermintide in space, based on Games Workshop’s popular Warhammer 40,000 IP.
You can check out the trailer below.
“Fight together with your friends against hordes of enemies in this new Warhammer 40,000 experience. From the developers of the best-selling and award-winning co-op action franchise Vermintide, Warhammer 40,000: Darktide is a visceral 4-player co-op action game set in the hive city of Tertium.
In the depths of the hive, the seeds of corruption threaten an overwhelming tide of darkness. A heretical cult known as the Admonition seeks to seize control of the planet Atoma Prime and lay waste to its inhabitants. It is up to you and your allies in the Inquisition to root out the enemy before the city succumbs to Chaos.”
Warhammer 40,000: Darktide is coming in 2021 for Xbox Series X/S and PC.
