Good news for fans of the Warhammer franchise. The four-player co-op game Warhammer 40,000: Darktide is having a closed beta test from October 14 to October 16. That means during this period, players get the chance to visit the Hive City. However, it’s not going to be a walk in the park, so prepare for that.

This upcoming closed beta test is for PC players, and if you’re one of those interested, sign up here.

Warhammer 40,000: Darktide is set in the city of Tertium. Players can team up with friends and fight against hordes of enemies. The game is coming out this November 30 on PC. A version for the Xbox Series X/S is also planned to be released, though no date has been announced.

Features of the game include:

  • Your Character. Your Playstyle.
    • Create your own unique character and customize their physical appearance, voice, and origin.
    • Choose a class to determine which unique traits and skill sets can be used in battle.
  • Combat Evolved
    • Building on the legacy of Vermintide 2 ’s best-in-class melee combat, the game introduces intense WH40K gunplay to the mix.
    • Master the balance between ranged and melee combat as you fight your way across a horde of enemies.
  • Save Tertium from Ruin
    • Step into the violent, dystopian world of Warhammer 40,000.
    • Your role is to serve the zealous Inquisition by taking on missions to exterminate the threats that lurk in the depths of the Hive City, or die trying.
  • Overcome Unpredictable Challenges
    • Adapt to the erratic whims of Chaos with circumstances like mutators that add a spontaneous challenge to the mission. The team needs to learn to adjust, adopt new tactics, and change up their loadouts to face these ruthless challenges.
