Warhammer 40,000: Darktide gets new gameplay trailer

Warhammer 40,000: Darktide

Fatshark have released a new gameplay trailer for Warhammer 40,000: Darktide as part of the Summer Game Fest 2022.

Warhammer 40,000: Darktide seeks to transfer the formula of Warhammer: Vermintide to the grim darkness of the far future. Players will get to create their own custom character from a variety of backgrounds and classes before setting out to save the hive city of Tertium from a Chaos incursion. The game will blend the visceral melee combat of Vermintide with a greater emphasis on ranged weapons drawn from 40k‘s iconic arsenal.

Fatshark also confirmed the PC version of Darktide will support Nvidia DLSS, Ray Tracing, and Reflex.

“It’s been an exciting, and maybe a little crazy week for Fatshark, with two brand new Warhammer 40,000: Darktide trailers released,” Fatshark CEO Martin Wahlund said in a press release. “While last week’s amazing Warhammer Skulls trailer focused more on story, gameplay is what it all comes down to, and today we gave you almost 120 seconds of Darktide.”

You can find the new gameplay trailer below.

Warhammer 40,000: Darktide

Fight together with your friends against hordes of enemies in this new Warhammer 40,000 experience. From the developers of the best-selling and award-winning co-op action franchise Vermintide, Warhammer 40,000: Darktide is a visceral 4-player co-op action game set in the hive city of Tertium.

In the depths of the hive, the seeds of corruption threaten an overwhelming tide of darkness. A heretical cult known as the Admonition seeks to seize control of the planet Atoma Prime and lay waste to its inhabitants. It is up to you and your allies in the Inquisition to root out the enemy before the city succumbs to Chaos.


  • A FAST-PACED AND BRUTAL CO-OP ADVENTURE – Stem the overwhelming tides of enemies alongside up to 3 friends in this harrowing co-op experience. Team composition and collaboration are critical, and will determine whether or not you secure victory for the God-Emperor.
  • COMBAT EVOLVED – Built on the legacy of Vermintide 2’s highly-praised melee combat, Warhammer 40,000: Darktide introduces a deep and balanced gunplay to the mix. Master the balance between ranged and melee combat as you fight through a slew of enemies, feeling the impact of each swing of your chainsword or blazing gunfire from your lasgun.
  • AN UNEXPECTED JOURNEY – Step into the dystopian and violent world of the Warhammer 40,000 universe where you play the part of a convict turned agent who serves the zealous Inquisition in its mission to exterminate Chaos cultist corruption.
  • YOUR CHARACTER, YOUR PLAYSTYLE – Choose your class and customize your skillset and load-out — all tailored to suit your own style of play. Upgrade your gear, customize your character’s looks, and prove your worth to the elusive Inquisitor.

Warhammer 40,000: Darktide is set to launch on September 13th, 2022, for Windows PC (via Steam and the  Microsoft Store), Xbox One, and Xbox Series X|S.
