Preorders For Warhammer 40,000: Darktide Are Now Open

In a new cinematic teaser that showed the game's two levels, developer Fatshark confirmed the release date for Warhammer 40,000: Darktide

A terrifying plague of the Chaos God Nurgle threatens to corrupt and destroy all life in the hive metropolis of Tertium, set in Atoma Prime. With Nurgle's soldiers overrunning Imperial fortifications, it's up to a band of outlaws enlisted by the Imperium to assist Tertium recover from the virus. As a four-player cooperative game, players will take on the role of one of the criminals, each with their own set of talents that will assist them in their quest to rid Tertium of the Nurgle threat. If a Warhammer-themed first-person co-op game sounds familiar, it's because Warhammer 40,000: Darktide is being developed by FatShark, the creator of Warhammer: Vermintide.

The "Rejects Will Rise" cinematic video for Warhammer 40,000: Darktide was showed off during the Warhammer Skulls: Festival of Games event on developer FatShark's YouTube channel. The new teaser featured four player characters, one of them was a completely new Psyker character, fighting for their life against Nurgle's minions. The clip also included the return of Vermintide composer Jesper Kyd, whose impressive CV includes work on Assassin's Creed, Borderlands, and Darksiders 2 among others. Finally, the trailer revealed that Darktide would be released on September 13th, 2022, and that it is currently available for presale on PC via Steam and Windows Store, as well on Xbox Series X|S via the Xbox Store.

Fatshark has verified that two presale tiers are presently available. The main game and two cosmetic items, the Atmoan Star Weapon Trinket and the Vanguard of the Imperium Portrait Frame, are included in Darktide's standard tier. The Darktide Imperial Edition costs extra and contains everything from the ordinary tier plus the Loyalist Pack. The Loyalist Pack is a large cosmetic set that includes four different class clothes, eight different weapon skin patterns, one helmet, and one Ogryn body tattoo. In addition to the Caducades Backpack cosmetic skin for player backpacks, the Mortis Veteran Portrait Frame, and 2500 Aquilas in in-game currency, Imperial Edition preorders will receive the Caducades Backpack cosmetic skin for player backpacks, the Mortis Veteran Portrait Frame, and 2500 Aquilas in in-game currency.

Fatshark's most sophisticated experience is already shaping up to be Warhammer 40,000: Darktide. It'll be interesting to see what else Fatshark has in store for Warhammer fans, especially with the promise of more Darktide news in the future. Fans of Warhammer 40K may be in for a wonderful treat if their success with the Vermintide series for Warhammer: Age of Sigmar is any indicator.
