From the game studio that created the well-received Vermintide series, Fatshark and company announced Warhammer 40,000: Darktide, a four-player co-op title that is set in hive Tertium. With a group of three other players as a reconnaissance squad sent to “determined the full extent of unrest in a hive,” mow through hordes of enemies until the bitter end. Check out the official announcement trailer below:

Known for their work on the Warhammer: Vermintide series, Fatshark wanted to create a brand new co-op experience that called true to what people loved about said games. “We’re sticking with what we know,” Fatshark explained in a press release. “A co-op game first and foremost, with the same tight melee combat that not only are we proud of but also that we’re known for. However, we’ll be giving ranged combat more complexity of its own to really bring it up to par with the hands on stuff. Our hope is that we can really deliver on some truly hybrid combat that’s both accessible yet boasts a high skill ceiling, offering the same opportunity for mastery regardless of whether you’ve got a lasgun or a chainsword in your hands.”

For now, that’s all Fatshark had to reveal to the community. With that said, there will be opportunities to get your hands on Warhammer 40,000: Darktide before it launches next year.  Warhammer 40,000: Darktide is planned for a release date in 2021 exclusively for Xbox consoles.
