After releasing two successful Warhammer titles — Vermintide and Vermintide 2 — Swedish video game developer Fatshark has now announced its latest successor at the Xbox Games Showcase, named Warhammer 40K: Darktide.

Much like its two previous successors, the new first-person-shooter adopts a Left 4 Dead-styled four-player co-op mode as you fight through waves of enemies to reach certain objectives. As its name suggests, instead of the fantasy world of the original Warhammer franchise, this game will take place in the distant sci-fi future of the brutal and grim universe of Warhammer 40K. Players will play as forces of the Imperium, sent to investigate a hive city called Tertium. Instead of entering an arcology containing millions of humans, the soldiers find themselves among hordes of enemies from a Chaos cult instead, thrusting them into the center of a battle for survival.

“Players will not be able to hide behind lethal ranged weapons,” said Fatshark on the gameplay. “They’ll need to combine both FPS and melee skills as they get up close and personal in visceral clashes between Imperium and Chaos factions.”

Currently planned for an Xbox Series X and PC release via SteamWarhammer 40K: Darktide will arrive some time in 2021.

Elsewhere in gaming, Microsoft has announced a new Fable game for the Xbox Series X.
