The creative minds behind the Warhammer 40,000: Vermintide series is back for another run at the co-op gauntlet. Warhammer 40,000: Darktide has us in a grimdark futuristic setting whereas of the medieval boots we ran in prior. Darktide has us playing in the hive world of tertium. Where players will have to combine their efforts to survive the hordes and onslaught of Poxwalkers as you play as Imperial Guardsmen. Vermintide developer Fatshark returning to the Warhammer universe will be fun as they proved themselves with both Vermintide titles prior. Players will not be able to hide behind lethal ranged weapons, they’ll need to combine both FPS and melee skills as they get up close and personal in visceral clashes between Imperium and Chaos factions
In a statement from the CEO of Fatshark Martin Wahlund:
“I am happy to announce Warhammer 40,000: Darktide to the gaming world today. We are utilizing the knowledge and experience honed from the Vermintide franchise in this new take on the 40,000 universe. We are bringing the four player CO-OP experience to a new setting, and we can’t wait to share the game with everybody in 2021.”
