Initially scheduled for mid-September, Warhammer 40K: Darktide has been delayed on Xbox and PC. The game will now release on November 30th on Windows but is delayed with the promise of “soon after” on Xbox consoles. It is releasing directly into Game Pass for both platforms and we will review it when it launches.
Warhammer 40K: Darktide’s PR description copied below:
REJECTS WILL RISE
Take back the city of Tertium from hordes of bloodthirsty foes in this intense and brutal action shooter.
Warhammer 40,000: Darktide is the new co-op focused experience from the award-winning team behind the Vermintide series.
YOUR CHARACTER, YOUR PLAYSTYLE
Create your own, unique character and customize their physical appearance, voice, and origin.
Choose your class to determine which unique traits and skill sets they will make use of in battle.
Will you be a seasoned veteran of the Imperial army, a snarky outsider, or a fiery zealot?
The choice is yours.
Built on the legacy of Vermintide 2’s best-in-class melee combat, Warhammer 40,000: Darktide introduces intense WH40K gunplay to the mix.
Master the balance between ranged and melee combat as you fight through 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.
Your role is to 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.
Your team must learn to adjust, adopt new tactics and change up their loadouts to face these ruthless challenges.
