Y'know if the release date is meant to be September we've got a lot of these little teaser videos to go!

I initially thought they'd do one every two weeks, but that's not the case, so I'm guessing this is building up towards the next big trailer probably, we're due a proper gameplay trailer some time soon now.

I guess E3? That's soon right?

I keep forgetting that E3 is still a thing.

Could be E3, could also be the next big GW event in the UK, they usually demo / show off games there as well.

So it sounds like it's all going to the warp in a nurgley handbasket.

In Vermintide it was just you and the inn keeper seemingly the last people in the city. Is it going to be the same here in Darktide or are they perhaps going to be saying there's other "teams" out and about?

The release date teaser showed a hall full of troopers, so we're not completely alone. That said, the player characters are taken from a penal unit by the Inquisition, so chances are they'll be sent into the worst hotzones possible where nobody else would dare to go.

E3 is not a thing this year. Got caught in limbo between remote and in person and they just binned it for the year. Some of the ancillary presentations may be happening, but the main expo (in either physical or digital format) isn't.

Looks like a lot of recoil coming off that lasgun

Otherwise, looks pretty cool.

We may see the psyker unveil either today or later during the Skulls event, they've been counting down to today with blurred bits of gameplay / trailer, with today's trailer showing off a psychic power going off at an Ogryn.

Skulls trailer was odd. I was expecting specialists from a guard regiment, not Farscape outcasts (complete with fitting theme music).

The big trailer of everything is up on WarCom, but its packed with a lot of advertisements and pauses to show off logos, so if you can find independent trailers, that's probably better.

I think they said early on you're from a penal legion.

I gotta say, looks pretty cool. The guns sound pretty tasty.

Yes they are all from a penal legion, which was indeed mentioned very early on.

And Steam put the game up for preorder as well, soooooo.. no-brainer for me.

I hope this poor lass gets a response soon.

Although I wonder if by the end she will be converted to Chaos and be chanting to Nurgle in all his manky pestilential glory.

Krieg! What a hole...

I had a fleeting thought that the woman who we saw turn into a Poxwalker was Wyrmwood. But it seems what I assumed was a Vox Caster of sorts with an Inquisition symbol was actually a sort of Mechanicus shrine.

Wyrmwood may be local mission control for the penitents, assigning suicide missions and running debriefs afterwards.

I wonder if this will be a standard CS:Go style "loadout at start of game" style team based shooter, or if it'll be a progressive RPG multiplayer like the Resistance: Fall of Man 2 Multiplayer, where you unlock new and better class upgrades as you play.

I would much prefer the latter.

It could be how Killing Floor 1+2 works - when you die you lose your gear and re-buy next round. This creates eco rounds

I dont think it'll be the left4dead where you just walk through and all weapons are generic

Well they seem to be saying something about building your class and customising your character as you go so I would guess there is a definite RPG element.

Presumably though it'll play a lot like Vermintide.

The psyker powers look fun. Imploding skulls ahoy! I wonder if you get mind bullets.

Good god damn. I think this is easily the best looking 40k game I've seen. The guns look great and unlike that crappy Necromunda game at least they gave some thought to the optics. The gothic arch holoscope is hilarious.

Guns sound excellent, especially the lasgun. I really don't know who I'd start playing as, I like the idea of playing as the Ogryn but also I do want to be the basic trooper.

I really hope it's not pay to unlock extra weapons, but it likely will be. Point is, if it's a level based system, where you for instance need to be level 20 to unlock the Ripper gun for the Ogryn, it would be far better than day 1 being able to just equip it on every level 1. I just want a reason to actually play the game, as there likely will be ZERO story. If I have to kill 1000 heretics and mutants to unlock the auto-rifle for the trooper class, that would be a reason to play.
