Xbox Series X Event Reveals New Warhammer 40K Game From Vermintide Dev

During Microsoft’s Xbox Series X stream, the company showed a trailer for a new Warhammer 40K game. Warhammer 40,000: Darktide is coming to Xbox Series X and PC in 2021 from developer Fatshark. Darktide is a four-player co-op shooter set in the Warhammer 40K universe and looks like an appropriate follow-up to its horde-fighting Vermintide games.

The four-player co-op game is set in the hive Tertium, and comes from the studio behind the popular Vermintide franchise. We see four gun-toting soldiers walking through a decrepit, cavernous-like area before running headfirst into a horde of zombie-like creatures, both big and small. Unfortunately, we didn’t see the soldiers introduce themselves, but the trailer still gave off some creepy vibes. With the studio having created the Left 4 Dead-like Vermintide games, it’s easy to think of what happened next.

Warhammer 40,000: Darktide is a console launch exclusive to the Xbox Series X, which means it could come to PS5 later. However, no timing or details were given on that front. It is coming to PC in 2021, and a Steam page is already live. System requirements for that version were not shared.

The steam page includes a bit of an expanded description, explaining the game in this way: “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.”
