Keeping up the trailer content for you this morning, we also got a look at some gameplay from the upcoming Fat Shark video game Warhammer 40,000: Darktide. Check it out below...

In a rather rockin' (oh dear, I sound like an out of touch adult now) trailer, we got to see a team of four heroes sticking it to the servants of Chaos in the depths of Atoma Prime which has been overrun. In true Fat Shark fashion, you're going to be getting stuck in with melee weapons and a now wider suite of ranged options to take down your foes.

The core of the gameplay does seem to have shades of Vermintide about it, especially when it comes to the melee combat but that's no bad thing. I have really enjoyed playing Vermintide II recently and if Fat Shark can refine that gameplay loop even more whilst creating satisfying gunplay then I am all for it.

From my semi-educated musing, it seems like we're getting an Ogryn to play as (duh) plus an Imperial Guard/Astra Militarum Captain and a Kasrkin or Stormtrooper. The final addition is an Imperial Priest I would guess, especially considering the massive hammer and constant chanting about The Emperor.

I am very interested to see how this all turns out and I can see it being a fun hop into the grimdark future with friends.

Are you a fan of Vermintide and tempted to give this a go?
