Last night’s Video Game Awards saw the debut gameplay trailer for Warhammer 40,000: Darktide, a cooperative first-person shooter set in the 41st Millennium. If you missed it – or just want to experience it again – we have an incredible extended version of the trailer.

Darktide comes from developers Fatshark, who brought you the multi-million played Warhammer Vermintide series, and builds on their critically-acclaimed mix of shooting, melee, and RPG-style advancement, all set in the hive city of Tertium. Up to four players can battle together as convicts-turned-Inquisitorial agents against the heretical cult known as the Admonition.

You’ll be able to choose your character class, then customise your skills and equipment to suit your playing style. The mix of classes in your team will prove crucial as you balance ranged and melee combat, using iconic weapons like lasguns and chainswords to battle your enemies and prove your worth to your mysterious Inquisitorial master.

While you’re waiting for Darktide, you can immerse yourself in the Warhammer 40,000 universe like never before in the first-ever Warhammer 40,000 VR game. Battle Sister is out now for Oculus Quest and Oculus Quest 2, and it casts you as one of the Imperium’s most devout warriors in a narrative-driven first-person shooter. Here’s the epic launch trailer.

As Sister Ophelia of the Adepta Sororitas, you’ll embark on a mission to retrieve a powerful artefact, thwart the plans of a rogue psyker, and find out more about your long-lost twin sister. Fight alongside your fellow Battle Sisters, Black Templars Space Marines, and agents of the Inquisition using twelve iconic weapons from the grim darkness of the far future – and of course, your faith in the God-Emperor. Check out this cinematic trailer for another look at what to expect.

Developers Pixel Toys (who also made the incredible Warhammer 40,000: Freeblade) have used cutting-edge technology to put you into the heart of this dynamic, immersive shooter. This making-of video will give you an insight into some of the amazing work that went into crafting the game. 

Become a Battle Sister today, and lose yourself in the Warhammer 40,000 universe in a whole new way, and don’t forget to show your loyalty to the God-Emperor with the new range of Battle Sister merchandise that’s now available!
