Fans of the gloomy world of Warhammer 40,000 will be delighted to hear that a new co-op game set in that universe is coming in 2021.
Warhammer 40,000: Darktide is a 4-player co-op action game set in the hive city of Tertium.
It's been developed by Fatshark, the developers of the best-selling and award-winning co-op action franchise Vermintide, which itself is set in the world of Warhammer (not 40K).
"We’re sticking with what we know. 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," says in Fatshark's press release.
"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."
Warhammer 40,000: Darktide is set to release in 2021 for Xbox Series X and Steam, and you can already wishlist Darktide on Steam.
