    To put it simply - lasgun right now would be every general's and soldier's wet dream - roughly the power of .50 cal (can blow off limbs in one hit) while still in the standard rifle size and weight, basically 100% accuracy, huge magazine which can be recharged in multiple ways including throwing it in fire (literally) thus easing logistics a lot, etc.

    Problem is that every enemy is 40k is over the top in some sort of way and wielding stupidly overpowered weapons when compared to the lasgun.

    Exactly it's a extremely good weapon just not against the horrors the astra militarum faces like daemons and necrons etc but they have other ways to deal with that.

    Not really a fan of the WH FPS stuff, but Vermintide wasn't bad. Wake me up when there's a valid sequel to Dawn of War II. No, III does not count.

    Dan Abnett to be the author for the game,

    https://www.pcgamer.com/uk/dan-abnet...ver-recovered/

    That is pretty good news in my opinion

    Very good news, dont expect the game to be super lore heavy but still very nice.

    - - - Updated - - -

    Also some interesting info about the player hub in this article, Inquisitor starship where we can interact with npc's and other players and it seems like more players around then just your party too unlike the vermintide hubs.

    Also this was released about a few hours ago,




    Shaping up to be a good game with lessons learned from vermintide by the sounds of it

    edit:
    Noticed the video was also linked in the article later

    I hope they're adding more than 4 characters. 5 was already a pain in the ass in Vermintide if you played with friends who mained the same characters...

    Quality over Quantity, i rather have one soldier than 3 with slightly different skins, same for psykers and so on. Character background matters for me in such games.

    It is a game heavily based on setting and not a shooter like CSgo or rainbow six.

    Or another way to look it at i rather have 6 friends contesting over 3 characters than all of them being rather lukewarm for most of them.

    Eh, it's a game first and foremost and they reduced the banter significantly in Vermintide 2 compared to the first game. Sure, character background is important but not at the expense of gameplay. This is a coop game and it's not fun if you play with 3 friends and someone is forced to play a character they don't like. It just feels shit.

    I guess we aren't actually getting it this year. I'm willing to wait.

    They did? I've picked it up again recently to play through the chaos waste and redo most of the old stuff with my friends and I can't even remotely agree to this.

    Not sure how to fix the problem with the characters though.
    Adding more of the same is horrible for gameplay too.

    Having 4 Krubers in Vermintide would just suck for example and having 20 guys to pick from that don't interact with each other in any way is also boring.
    Getting to be a Grail Knight as Kruber and call Saltzpyre a peasant after like 3 years is already half the fun I wanted and needed out of that DLC for example.

    I do hope it's more than 4 too though. 5 is the bare minimum (so that the last guy can at least pick between 2 - getting to "pick" is very important, from because the human brain just works that way) and 6-7 would be nice.

    In regards to the dialogue stuff: If you've played both games for a while, you'll notice VT2 is much more repetitive, the lines are shorter and it also gets interrupted constantly. You can also just look up some of the dialogue compilations on YouTube. I've heard that this might be due to the fact that VT2 has a different writer.

    Also no one is asking for 4 Krubers. I just want some choice when I play 4 player coop.

    Been a while since this game was on anyones radar.


  15. #195
    Yay.

    After having played GTFO for the longest time with my friends (awesome game worth every single penny btw), this will be the "easier", more action focused game of the same kind.

    I can't wait.

    2022 was already full with good games and it only seems to get better.

  16. #196
    Gameplay looks very meaty, cant wait for this one. Dan abnett is also onboard for the story bits but i do wonder how much of a story it will have.

    - - - Updated - - -

    Well aslong as the party banter is as good as vermintide im happy.
    Do you hear the voices too?

    I would love more gameplay trailers, to be honest, though they have a lot of time still until release to get the media hype up.
    If the game has similar OST to the one from this trailer - immediate plus.
    P.S.
    Did that seniorish looking guardsmen tried to pick a fight with someone having shoulder pads marked with Inquisition's sign aka obvious auxilary to them?

    He has the same sign.
    In fact, it seems basically everyone in that..."pub" has it.

    To be honest, that release trailer didn't really do a good job of showcasing Darktide's witty banter, considering only two characters talked and neither of them said anything particularly interesting.

    I... am blind. You are right, everyone is from a retinue there.
