Gamescom 2022 is underway, and Fatshark has shared a new trailer for it Warhammer 40,000: Darktide. Along with quickly showcasing the number of player customization options and classes, it highlights the combat, various enemies encountered, and much more. Check it out below.
Written by Dan Abnett of Gaunt’s Ghosts and Eisenhorn fame, the story sees the city of Tertium occupied by the forces of Chaos.

Warhammer 40,000: Darktide is out on November 30th for PC with the Xbox Series X/S version arriving at a “later date.” Stay tuned for more details in the coming months.
