Experience Chaos in the Warhammer 40,000 Darktide Closed Beta Test This October

With a Nov. 30 launch to look forward to, eager rejects hoping to experience the bloody battles that await in Warhammer 40,000: Darktide will be able to do in the upcoming Closed Beta Test starting from Oct. 14-16. Sessions will be available on both Steam and Microsoft Store for PC, with registrations still currently open.

Developed by Fatshark, the award-winning team behind the Vermintide series, the time is now to take back the city of Tertium from hordes of bloodthirsty foes in this intense and brutal action shooter. In the depths of the hive, the seeds of corruption threaten to turn into an overwhelming tide of darkness. A mysterious and sinister new force is seeking to take control of the entire city. It is up to all the Rejects and their allies in the Inquisition to root out the enemy before the city succumbs to Chaos.

Warhammer 40,000: Darktide Features

Your Character, Your Playstyle

Create a unique character and customize their physical appearance, voice, and origin. Choose a preferred class to determine which unique traits and skill sets they will make use of in battle. Decide between a seasoned veteran of the Imperial army, a snarky outsider, or a fiery zealot, and bring the war to the undeserving.

Combat Evolved

Built on the legacy of Vermintide 2‘s best-in-class melee combat, Warhammer 40,000: Darktide introduces intense gunplay to the mix. Master the balance between ranged and melee combat as in battles against a slew of enemies. Feel the impact of each swipe, swing, and slice of a chainsword, or fry some flesh with a lasgun.

Save Tertium from Ruin

Step into the violent, dystopian world of Warhammer 40,000. From boiling hot industrial factories to the decaying water maintenance zone afflicted by constant acid rainfall – Tertium Hive is a hard and unforgiving place even at the best of times. Serve the zealous Inquisition by embarking on missions to exterminate the threats lurking in the depths of the hive city, or die trying.

Overcome Unpredictable Challenges

Adapt to the erratic whims of Chaos with circumstances – mutators that add a spontaneous challenge to your mission. Every team must learn to adjust, adopt new tactics and change up their loadouts to face these ruthless challenges.

Experience all of the action in the Closed Beta Test for Warhammer 40,000: Darktide, available from Oct. 14 to 16.
