The next entry in the Warhammer 40K franchise was revealed during Thursday's presentation of The Game Awards. This latest entry from the team at Fatshark looks to take the series in more of a shooter direction, as four characters go in guns blazing in Warhammer 40K: Darktide.
First revealed during July's Xbox Series X Game Showcase, Darktide ventures into the realm of the four-player co-op shooter, as friends get together to take on hordes of enemies in hive Tertium. If you didn't get a clear enough taste of the gameplay and action the game is set to introduce, no worries. Fatshark uploaded an extended edition of the trailer just minutes after it debuted at The Game Awards.
There are few developers better equipped to take on this type of game than Fatshark. The studio is coming off its acclaimed work on the Vermintide series, which is just coming off its five-year anniversary. Success in Darktide will mean combining FPS tactics with melee combat, as the clash between the Imperium and Chaos factions come to a head.
Warhammer 40K: Darktide is coming in 2021 exclusively to PC and Xbox Series X.
