This summer was announced Warhammer 40,000: Darktide, a kind of spiritual sequel to Warhammer: Vermintide 2 (review), again developed by Swedish Fatshark. And now, during The Game Awards on Friday night, the game has shown itself in the very first fast-paced, sloppy game sequences.
Since Warhammer 40,000 is sci-fi and not fantasy seems the biggest difference compared to Vermintide 2 be the more capable firearms (although there were also a lot of that item in Vermintide 2). There are also huge hammers and shimmering swords for those who want to be a little more approachable in their confrontations, along with grenades and four seemingly unique characters, one of whom is a huge giant.
Warhammer 40,000: Darktide planned to be released sometime next year via Steam. And you know what? If you run to the store next week’s Thursday, December 17, you can pick up the new issue of the successful magazine Svenska PC Gamer, which includes an eight-page Sweden exclusive Warhammer 40,000: Darktidearticle. That you!
Here are the first game sequences from Warhammer 40,000: Darktide.
