Warhammer 40,000: Darktide is an upcoming first-person action game being developed and published by Swedish video game studio Fatshark, which is planned to be released exclusively for Microsoft Windows and Xbox Series X/S in 2021. Set in the Warhammer 40,000 universe, the game will use a similar formula to that used in Fatshark’s Warhammer: Vermintide 2 in which four players cooperate to defeat periodic waves of AI-controlled enemies. The developers commented that Darktide is planned to be less melee focused than Vermintide 2, getting closer to a 50/50 split between melee and ranged combat.
The game’s story will focus on a squadron of Imperial Guardsmen investigating a cult on the planet Atoma Prime. Fight together with your friends against hordes of enemies in this new Warhammer 40,000 experience.
