Microsoft and developer Fatshark revealed as part of yesterday's Xbox Games Showcase that first-person, co-op focused shooter Warhammer 40,000: Darktide is coming to Xbox Series X in 2021.

The developer says it will be sticking with the familiar Warhammer: Vermintide formula for Darktide, featuring 4 player co-op first-person action in a rich, established universe with lashings of attention to detail.

It also revealed that it will be delivering on the same brutal melee combat that’s easy to pick up, yet hard to master, as well as improving ranged gameplay to "really offer players diverse choices and gameplay styles through a more hybrid combat experience."

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.
