A new trailer for Warhammer 40K: Darktide shown at Summer Game Fest Live revealed the release date in an appropriately brutal fashion. The follow-up to Vermintide will release on PC and Xbox consoles on September 13, 2022. The trailer also revealed it will be available on Xbox Game Pass.
The trailer showed some cinematic moments to set the stage and then got into the action that made Vermintide such a brutal treat, as you got to watch as the Warhammer marines mow down scads of enemies. After heretics sabotaged Tertium’s power supply, the four grizzled vets were sent in to correct the issue in bloody fashion.
Darktide is coming from Fatshark, the studio behind Vermintide 2. As part of today’s reveal, Fatshark also announced that Darktide will launch with Nvidia DLSS, ray tracing, and Nvidia Reflex support.
Warhammer 40K: Darktide will come as a standard edition ($40) with an Atoman Star Weapon cosmetic trinket and Imperium portrait frame, and an Imperial Edition ($60) that includes four unique class outfits, eight weapon skins, 2500 premium currency, and other cosmetic items. Preorders are now available on Steam and Xbox.
