Darktide Easter Eggs for hardcore Warhammer fans

Darktide Easter Eggs have decades of Warhammer 40,000 worldbuilding to pull from. Fatshark’s previous games, the Vermintide series, also had years of Warhammer Fantasy backstory to draw on and were delightfully rich in references.

Vermintide had Easter eggs from the Warhammer Fantasy novels (the vampire Franz Lohner talks about is the protagonist of Drachenfels, which also provides the setting for a DLC), the paper-and-pen RPG (expansions like Death on the Reik and Shadows Over Bögenhafen are named after his adventures), and other Warhammer video games (Lohner has a shield with Grudgebringers heraldry from Shadow of the Horned Rat and Dark Omen, and makes sly references suggesting he was actually their commanding officer, Morgan Bernhardt).
