Now Playing: Warhammer 40,000: Darktide | Closed Beta Test – Welcome to Tertium

Darktide is a first-person four-player co-op action game a la Warhammer Vermintide, which was also developed by Fatshark. Vermintide is set in Warhammer’s medieval fantasy setting, while Darktide takes place in the far-future, space-facing world of 40K. Vermintide let you take control of specific characters, each with an associated class. In Darktide, you make your own character and customize their class and backstory. The game intends to add more replayability and flexibility to the Vermintide formula, adding a loot system and expanding on level variants. If you don’t get into the beta or want a sense how it plays, you can read GameSpot’s preview of Darktide or check out 11 minutes of Psyker class gameplay footage.
