Xbox Series X Stream Debuts Warhammer 40K Game From Vermintide Dev

During Microsoft’s Xbox Series X stream, the company showed a trailer for a new Warhammer 40K game. Warhammer 40,000: Darktide is coming to Xbox Series X and PC in 2021 from developer Fatshark. Darktide is a four-player co-op shooter set in the Warhammer 40K universe and looks like an appropriate follow-up to its horde-fighting Vermintide games.

The four-player co-op game is set in the hive Tertium, and comes from the studio behind the popular Vermintide franchise. We see four gun-toting soldiers walking through a decrepid, cavernous-like area before running headfirst into a horde of zombie-like creatures, both big and small. Unfortunately, we didn’t see the soldiers introduce themselves, but the trailer still gave off some creepy vibes. With the studio having created the Left 4 Dead-like Vermintide games, it’s easy to think of what happened next.

Warhammer 40,000: Darktide is a console launch exclusive to the Xbox Series X, which means it could come to PS5 later. However, no timing or details were given on that front.
