Warhammer 40K: Darktide vs. Vermintide 2, compared

Team PC Gamer must have collectively killed at least 50,000 poxwalkers to date. My Ogryn’s big hands are messy, but once I start swinging his giant combat knife, it’s hard to stop. We played a lot of Warhammer 40K: Darktide during its pre-order beta, which ends with the game’s full launch on November 30. And we had a good time, but that was to be expected. – up to Vermintide 2, which we praised for its “stellar combat and level design”.

Vermintide 2 has gotten even better in the four years Fatshark has supported it, thanks to free and paid DLCs and a gigantic free roguelike mode. So when we first started playing Darktide, we weren’t comparing it to 2022’s Vermintide 2, not the game that launched in 2018. It has a lot going for it.
