Swedish developer Fatshark has announced the release date of its new shooter – Warhammer 40000: Darktide, and released a new trailer on this occasion.

This game is eagerly awaited by all fans of the 40K universe because it still lacks quality shooters – the last good game in this genre, it seems, was Warhammer 40000: Space Marine (2011).

Warhammer 40000: Darktide is generally similar to another action series from this developer – Warhammer: Vermintide. It will also be a cooperative shooter for four players who will destroy regular enemy waves. However, unlike Vermintide, which takes place in the “fantasy” universe of Warhammer Fantasy, Darktide “carries” players into the future – Warhammer 40,000.


The events of the game will take place in the 41st millennium, the Imperial Guard together with the Inquisition will clean the hive city of Tertium on the planet Atom Prime from the heretical cult. Unlike Vermintide’s mostly melee combat, Darktide will actively use traditional 40K “long-range” weapons, but hand-to-hand combat will not go away. Interestingly, according to some rumors, the plot of the game was contributed by the well-known writer of the 40K universe Dan Abnett.

Warhammer 40,000: Darktide is due out on September 13, 2022, on PC and Xbox Series X | S. The game has a page on Steam, but you can’t buy it yet, only the “add to wish” option is available.
