Warhammer 40,000: Darktide is written by Dan Abnett, author of several books set in the universe created by Games Workshop, as well as Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor.
Announced with a trailer last July, Warhammer 40,000: Darktide will arrive on PC and Xbox Series X | S in the course of 2021: perhaps the precise release date will be announced at E3 2021.
In the video below, Abnett talks about his experience with the writing of Darktide, the characters and their peculiarities, as well as his personal vision regarding the new title of Fatshark.
It is clear that the support of such a well-known and talented author will greatly increase the narrative depth of the game, which will therefore be able to involve us in its atmosphere rather than rely solely on in-game action.
However, Darktide will not mark Fatshark’s debut with the Warhammer universe, but will mark a new step in the same territory after the excellent Warhammer: Vermintide 2.
