Originally, Warhammer was a Tabletop Role-Playing Game (TTRPG). It also included various figurines, maps, and plenty more game loot. You would purchase and collect these merchandise to create a full army and battle it out with other players.

However, it evolved into a video game in 2016 when SEGA released a turn-based real-time strategy (RTS). It further evolved to become an RPG that you can play with other gamers online. Recently, in November 2022, Warhammer 40K: Darktide appeared for the PC. 

It’s a first-person shooter adventure RPG set in a city to fight hordes of enemies. It’s undoubtedly a game not for the faint of heart. After all, it includes brutal and grisly visuals with more or less safe language.

However, it is a co-op game, meaning you don’t have to go through the terrors alone. The game also introduces new gameplay mechanics from its cousins Vermintide and Vermintide 2. It’s also worth noting that Vermintide was a hack-and-slash game.

In Darktide, slashing your way through your opponents is still a thing. However, you can also start shooting your way through them too. The game also includes telekinetic characters and more but you’ll have to play the game to find out.
