Warhammer 40,000: Darktide is a video game by Fatshark, the same production company which made the popular Vermintide series.[1]


From the developers of the best-selling and award-winning franchise Vermintide, Warhammer 40,000: Darktide is a visceral 4-player co-op action game set in the hive city of Tertium. Fight together with your friends against hordes of enemies in this new Warhammer 40,000 experience.[1]


The plot concerns agents of the Inquisition investigating potential Chaos influence on the world of Atoma Prime in the Hive City of Tertium. The plot will continue to evolve overtime as the meta of the game develops.[2]

In regard to overall narrative design, the game's principal writer for world building and narrative is Dan Abnett. Several other Black Library authors have worked on Darktide, including Matthew Ward as lead writer, Aaron Dembski-Bowden, Jeremy Vetock, John French, Jude Reid, Mark Latham, Sarah Cawkwell, and Victoria Hayward.[4]
