'Warhammer 40,000: Darktide' Announces Release Date With New Trailer

Almost two years after the game was originally announced, Games Workshop and Fatshark have now finally announced a release date for Warhammer 40,000: Darktide.

Slated to arrive this September, the new title builds on Fatshark's previous success on both Warhammer: Vermintide and Warhammer: Vermintide 2, adopting a similar four-player Left 4 Dead-styled gameplay where players will have to cooperate to fight through various levels against hordes of oncoming enemies.

Unlike the previous two installments, however, Darktide will be based in the futuristic Warhammer 40K universe instead of the fantasy world of the Vermintide, so you'll be using very different characters with new abilities and weapons. This time around, you and three friends will be fighting for the Imperium, taking on waves of Chaos minions in the hive city of Tertium. As you progress through the levels, you'll be able to upgrade and customize various skillsets and loud-outs for your chosen class as well, unlocking new gear to change the way your character looks.

For those interested, check out the new trailer above while you wait for Warhammer 40,000: Darktide to arrive on PC via Steam and Xbox One and Xbox Series X/S on September 13.

Elsewhere in gaming, Xbox is reportedly launching a family plan for its Game Pass subscription service.
