Just announced on Xbox games showcase.
It’s a day one addition to Game Pass for any subscribers, which is great news!

Fatshark has announced Warhammer 40,000: Darktide, a 4-player co-op shooter coming in 2021.
Set in the hive city of Tertium, players and their friends will be set against hordes of enemies based on the many threats of the grimdark Warhammer 40,000 universe.
H
Fatshark has good pedigree in this department, having previously made the Warhammer: Vermintide games.

Coming to PC too!

Appears to be a 40k take on Warhammer Vermintide- Guardsmen Vs. Nurgle in the ruins of a Hive City?

Right behind you.

Just so we're clear, it said "console launch exclusive" not "Xbox Exclusive".

Game's done by Fatshark. Looks like we get to quell a Poxwalker infestation...



There's the teaser trailer.

I really hope they get the lasgun right. It is a unique weapon compared to those in most shooters.

The steam page Icon has artwork featuring what I think is an Ogryn. So the characters we see in this trailer might not be whoever we are going to play.

They did have a mix of equipment. I think I saw a scope and a chainsword in there.

Yeah, it looked to me like the characters were deliberately readying a chainsword, a plasma gun etc to show different roles in the game. Though that doesn't rule out an ogryn character, Vermintide has 5 playable characters but only 4 players at once.

I have faith that it will be good.
Vermintide is like a love letter to Fantasy. The weapons are all from old Fantasy units. The dialogue is full of little lore tidbits. The dwarf, for example, often speaks in Khazalid. So if you know the lore, you can appreciate what he says. Same for the wood elf.
Even the maps are well made. It slips my mind atm, but the one DLC in the vampire castle (Drachenfel?) has the feast table with the poisoned feasters.

I have heard some bad things about their post-launch support for vermintide. Never played them though. Anyone know about that?

The key art for the title on the Steam Store has what looks like 'archetypes' rather.

There's an Ogryn with a flamethrower canister on his back, a sniper with a cloak and ork teeth on their back, a Guardsman with their rucksack, and what looks like an Interrogator or Ministorum Priest with a flamethrower.

Hmmm. I think there is more things that they could do that would be wrong. Visible light would be one thing that would be weird. Low mag capacity of 30 rounds would be another. Recoil would be another, although lore on that varies.

Lasgun is powerful enough to pop off limbs if you hit right. It is a good weapon, contrary to popular thinking.

Visible light would match the background and give players necessary feedback. I don't see them leaving that out.

Efficiency is the highest virtue.

Lore is varied on that too. Some sources say it does, some not.

Lasguns are so varied you can do pretty much whatever you like. Visible light can be done well, it just makes no sense from an irl perspective.

Vigo. Spain.

lasguns without visible light would look horrible on a videogame.

Dakka does have White Knights and is also rather infamous for it's Black Knights. A new edition brings out the passionate and not all of them are good at expressing themselves in written form. There have been plenty of hysterical responses from both sides so far. So we descend into pointless bickering with neither side listening to each other. So posting here becomes more masturbation than conversation.

It's not like guns have visible bullets.

And yet most games do, in fact, show bullets flying out of your gun.

I feel like GSC would have been a better choice.

They will have to expand the Poxwalker line considerably to make specialist enemies.

well in context of a tabletop maybe... where other get to shot exploding rapid fire rockets, anti livematter beams and master crafted ultra techno babble bolts

in context of a police force style sub tech enviorment, where people mostly use projectile weapons not so unfamiliar with ours... a las gun should be pretty hefty

Considering Poxwalkers are the first sign of the Plague of Unbelief, there's plenty more to go to.

Up to and including Death Guard.

If it's as good or better than Vermintide than I'm sold already.

Not sure how they could possibly screw this up compared to Vermintide but there is a first time for everything.
