Fans of the critically acclaimed Warhammer: Vermintide series should be more than happy to hear that its creators — Stockholm-based developer and publisher Fatshark — are working on a new Warhammer game.
The newly revealed Warhammer 40,000: Darktide is a 4-player co-op FPS that takes place in the hive city of Tertium. The game is coming to Xbox Series X and PC in 2021. Considering that the title is a console launch exclusive, chances are that Warhammer 40,000: Darktide will arrive on PlayStation 5 sometime in the future.
"Darktide won’t just be a melee romp though, as we’re going to bring ranged gameplay up to the same level as the melee we’re known for to really offer players diverse choices and gameplay styles through a more hybrid combat experience," Community Manager at Fatshark Leo ‘Hedge’ Wakelin said.
"Darktide will bring you cooperative experiences like never before. While it will be possible to ‘go it alone’, playing it with friends or making new ones through the game will be the best way to face off against unrelenting hordes of horror that are out to stop you from getting the job done," he added.
It's worth remembering that Warhammer 40,000: Darktide is not the only major Warhammer game currently in the works, as Rogue Factor's Necromunda: Underhive War will be released at some point this summer, with the team at Frontier Developments (Elite Dangerous) developing a Warhammer Age of Sigmar RTS.
