This is the best news of this year!
I was really very worried, and I would very much like that Darktide based on actual live Warhammer 40,000 background, is set during Era Indomitus.
I’ve been thinking about this since seeing the name of the game under the modern Warhammer 40,000 logo, seeing not just zombies - but Poxswalkers! And I was even more convinced of my opinion when the Developers showed their miniatures without hesitation - there were Primaris Marines too!
And so it will be! I think this is a win, it’s cool beyond imagination!
So no compromise: Forty-second Millennium, Cadia has fallen, the Galaxy is torn apart by the Great Rift - Cicatrix Maledictum, and the reborn primarch Roboute Guilliman now rule the Imperium and leading the Indomitus Crusade to save Humanity. The future is totally unknown, anything can happen and anything is possible.
Long live for Warhammer and Darktide!
P.S: I’m so inspired now, so I know no fear: I can say right - if the Developers come back later to the idea of Vermintide 3, then it must be based on the Age of Sigmar or “new” Old World settings. Love it all.
