Fighting Chaos Is Better Together In Warhammer 40,000: Darktide
During the Games Awards 2020 this week, we were treated to an extended trailer of Warhammer 40,000: Darktide. Created by the same studio behind Vermintide, this new game looks like the same winning formula, now set in the grim darkness of the far future. This latest trailer shows off extra gameplay footage that, even alongside probably three other Left 4 Dead style games, looked like a truly impressive game.
Warhammer 40,000: Darktide is set in the hive city of Tertium, an impossibly massive metropolis on the planet Atoma Prime. A cult known as Admonition plans to conquer the city and unleash the corruption of Chaos upon the entire planet. There are no space marines here to save you. The planet’s only hope is four regular soldiers of the Empire (well, three regular soldiers and one extra large one).
Much like in Vermintide, in Warhammer 40,000: Darktide you will have a team of four different classes. One is a regular imperial guardsman, armed with a trusty laser gun canonically as powerful as a flashlight, as well as a chainsword. Next is a lady guard of some kind, with an electrified sword and machine gun. The big guy holding a cannon is an Ogryn. And the priestly looking lady with a hammer, im told, is a hierophant or inquisitor or something. Each class has their own unique playstyles. And there’s always the possibility of more classes on the way.
The current release will be sometime in 2021. For more information, check out the Warhammer 40,000: Darktide website by clicking here.
