a Hive City on the
brink of collapse
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. The rich lore of Darktide is felt everywhere in the game - from the moment you create your character, to the incredible scale you will feel when exploring Tertium, to the over 85 000 lines of voice acted dialogue.
Or suffer together
At its core, Darktide is a co-op game. Wandering too far, risks punishment by foes looking to immobilize or capture stray Rejects, such as the slavering Chaos Hound or the Moebian Trapper. Once you fall prey to such foes, only your teammates can save you! More than that, your innate toughness – your determination to press on through the pain – only recharges when you are in the proximity of your strike team.
The threat of Chaos is not so easily defeated and the Battle for Tertium is just the beginning. In the coming weeks, months, and years the Darktide universe will grow, bringing with it new classes, missions, enemies & allies, and much more!
