What is Darktide?
In case you missed it, Darktide is a hack and slash as well as a first person shooter RPG. Located on the planet Atoma Prime, Tertium is a place ruled by the Empire of Man. Follow the dark agents of Nurgle, the Chaos God of Plague and Decay, as they begin their descent into the Hive City. Playing as the Inquisition, it’s your job to stop the growing invasion of Chaos. Although he is not the ideal recruit for the role, someone has to do it.
Players will have customization options such as choosing your opening line will also determine some of the cosmetics your character will be adorned with. Players can choose from Ogryns, Zealots, Psykers and Veterans classes. Darktide will have a simple loadout system, consisting of a primary weapon, a secondary weapon, and three gadgets. Using a hybrid combat system that integrates both melee and ranged weapons, giving you the choice of how you want to kill Nurgle and their hell. Want to learn more about Darktide? Check out our impressions and everything we know so far.
Welcome to the plague
This includes plague zombies, humans who have fallen prey to Nurgle’s plague and now take the form of resurrected enemies. Then you have the Chaos Cultists, those who have chosen to join the ranks of Nurgle. They are not any better because they also have diseases and other bloody troubles. But they still have their mind and abilities, which makes them harder to kill.
On the other hand, the fanatics in Darktide are former construction workers, who use axes and hammers as their weapons of choice. The worst of the worst are Nurgle’s plague-bearing army, foot soldiers who are demons made from tortured souls. Handling sick knives and bile-spewing guns, wonderful. Finally, taking the form of a pile of mutated flesh and pomegranates, Nurgle’s Chaos Spawn took decay to a new level, being so corrupt. I think it will be fun to fight against horrible enemies, using both hammers, guns and more to destroy them in online co-op.
Warhammer 40K: Darktide will be released on November 30, 2022 for PC via Steam. The closed beta runs from October 14-16, so be sure to sign up for your chance to get a spot.
