Game news Summer Game Fest 2022 – Warhammer 40,000: Could Darktide be the co -op FPS of the year?
Even if we’ve known about the existence of Warhammer 40k: Darktide for almost two years now, the cooperative FPS created by Fatshark is entitled to a new highlight during Summer Game Fest 2022 via a you new video. Something that can water our mouths with a lot of beheading, team killing, chainsaw cutting, and skulls on the legs that can hack installations. There are a number of reasons to wait for this title to come “one day” on Game Pass.
Crime, cruelty, cooperation
After the Warhammer universe and the gorgeous Vermintide 1 & 2, it’s Warhammer 40,000’s turn to welcome its PvE coop FPS with elements of Hack’n slash with Darktide. Developed by the team that typically manages Vermintide, this episode calls for a squad of four players to reclaim the city of Tertium, Atoma Prime, which has fallen under the attacks of fighting enemies. The house of Tertium really reigns in every corner of this city consisting of filthy factories and filthy maintenance areas. It is up to the player to perform the heavy task of cleaning everything using the Kärcher, or rather a laser rifle.
Once users can create their character by choosing from several classes (Ogryn, Zealot, Veteran, Psyker) as well as different appearance options (skin color, voice, face), they sent into a brutal universe where hordes of enemies follow each other, with the mission to accomplish different goals, some of which are randomly generated. In Darktide, weapons (or lasers) are in the spotlight, which doesn’t prevent chainswords (among other things) from being part of the game as well.. As you can understand, the studio is once again striving for continuous action where many terrifying creatures are simultaneously displayed on screen.
The Psycher in the spotlight
The trailer released at Summer Game Fest showcases the action classes and especially the devastating effects of weapons on poor opponents.. The opportunity to see a large rifle with a much faster rate, a guard move that is less damaging if there is a hit, an electric hammer, a speed knife, but also a power in the area to explode according to the player’s will and an incantation. allows to behead the target enemy, two Psycher skills (last class revealed). All under the heavy electronic music stigma. Psycher can also make shields and fire opponents with lightning. Fatshark promises that the Warhammer 40,000: Darktide game will provide effective synergies between classes.
Warhammer 40,000: Darktide will be released on September 13, 2022 exclusively on Xbox Series X | S and PC. The game will be available from the day of its release with Game Pass.
