Warhammer 40,000: Darktide gets new gameplay trailer at Gamescom


Fatshark have released a new gameplay trailer for Warhammer 40,000: Darktide as part of Gamescom 2022.

Warhammer 40,000: Darktide takes Fatshark’s co-op action formula from the Vermintide series and brings it to the grim darkness of the far future. Up to 4 players must brave the horrors of Tertium, a hive city infested with Chaos cultists and foul warp entities that threaten to overthrow the entire planet.

Unlike in Vermintide, players will be able to create their own character from the game’s several playable classes. This will allow you to customize your character’s appearance, voice overs, and origins before they are sent off on suicide missions for the Inquisition.

You can find the new gameplay trailer below.

You can find a rundown (via Steam) below:

Take back the city of Tertium from hordes of bloodthirsty foes in this intense and brutal action shooter. Warhammer 40,000: Darktide is the new co-op focused experience from the award-winning team behind the Vermintide series.

In the depths of the hive, the seeds of corruption threaten to turn into an overwhelming tide of darkness. A mysterious and sinister new force is seeking to take control of the entire city. It is up to you and your allies in the Inquisition to root out the enemy before the city succumbs to Chaos.

As Tertium falls, Rejects Will Rise.


Create your own, unique character and customize their physical appearance, voice, and origin. Choose your class to determine which unique traits and skill sets they will make use of in battle. Will you be a seasoned veteran of the Imperial army, a snarky outsider, or a fiery zealot? The choice is yours.


Built on the legacy of Vermintide 2’s best-in-class melee combat, Warhammer 40,000: Darktide introduces intense WH40K gunplay to the mix. Master the balance between ranged and melee combat as you fight through a slew of enemies. Feel the impact of each swipe, swing, and slice of a chainsword, or fry some flesh with a lasgun.


Step into the violent, dystopian world of Warhammer 40,000. From boiling hot industrial factories to the decaying water maintenance zone afflicted by constant acid rainfall – Tertium Hive is a hard and unforgiving place even at the best of times. Your role is to serve the zealous Inquisition by embarking on missions to exterminate the threats lurking in the depths of the hive city, or die trying.


Adapt to the erratic whims of Chaos with circumstances – mutators that add a spontaneous challenge to your mission. Your team must learn to adjust, adopt new tactics and change up their loadouts to face these ruthless challenges.

Warhammer 40,000: Darktide is set to release on November 30th for Windows PC via Steam, with Xbox versions releasing shortly after.
