Warhammer 40,000: Darktide Launches November with NVIDIA DLSS, NVIDIA Reflex & Ray Tracing

Fatshark’s Warhammer: End Times - Vermintide and Warhammer: Vermintide 2 are phenomenally successful, much-loved four-player co-op action games set in the End Times of the Warhammer Fantasy franchise. This November, Fatshark leaps thousands of years into the future to bring gamers Warhammer 40,000: Darktide, the hotly-anticipated follow up set during the time of the Space Marines.

Head to the industrial city of Tertium to combat the forces of Chaos, using Vermintide 2’s lauded melee system and a range of deadly Warhammer 40,000 weapons. Personalize your playstyle with a character creation system, and delve deep into the city to put a stop to the horrors that lurk.


In advance of Warhammer 40,000: Darktide’s November 30th launch, NVIDIA and Fatshark have formed a partnership to deliver the definitive experience to GeForce RTX gamers, enhancing their co-op adventures with NVIDIA DLSS, NVIDIA Reflex, and advanced ray tracing effects. In other words, you’ll receive the highest levels of performance, the smoothest gameplay, and the highest-fidelity graphics.

With NVIDIA DLSS, our critically acclaimed AI-powered tech, your performance will get even faster, without compromising image quality. NVIDIA DLSS is used in over 180 games, where it accelerates performance by up to 3X.

Smooth, responsive gameplay is as-important as having a high frame rate, and to ensure Warhammer 40,000: Darktide’s high-intensity action is the smoothest around, we’re also bringing NVIDIA Reflex to the party. This feature reduces system latency, meaning your actions occur faster, which makes gameplay feel snappier and more enjoyable. Reflex is a comparatively new NVIDIA technology, but it’s already one of the fastest to be adopted, with integrations already available in the biggest games and franchises.


As you can see in the trailer above, Warhammer 40,000: Darktide is a stunningly-rendered game. But if you have a GeForce RTX graphics card, desktop or laptop, you can take those visuals to new heights with the addition of ray-traced reflections, and amazing RTX Global Illumination (RTXGI) effects.

Even if you don’t have a GeForce RTX PC or laptop, you can still enjoy Warhammer 40,000: Darktide with #RTXON by streaming it from the cloud thanks to NVIDIA GeForce NOW.
