Warhammer 40,000: Darktide Will Have ‘Thousands’ of Party Lines Despite Custom Characters

Warhammer 40,000: Darktide by Fatshark is probably the most anticipated game of the year not just for Warhammer fans, but fans of co-op shooters in general. The studio’s Warhammer: Vermintide series is extremely popular, and PC Gamer lists it as one of the best co-op shooters on PC. (opens in new tab) One of the things people love most about Vermintide is how its five fixed characters interact with each other. They play, play and fight.

However, with the recent reveal that their characters in Darktide will be customizable, Fatshark was quick to show how they’re keeping the spirit of playfulness alive in a developer blog (opens in new tab) which includes raw footage of voice actors at work. You can choose from any number of voice profiles for each class, allowing for “thousands and thousands of voices in Darktide,” according to narrative director Mårten Stormdal.

“It’s something we’ve had in mind from the beginning, through writing, casting and directing. , but it’s a lot – and the amount of lines (it’s a lot – we hate hearing the same lines over and over again when we’re playing) players will find a lot to fall in love with,” he said.

It’s interesting to see how the sausage is made here, but even more interesting are the YouTube clips embedded throughout. They hint at not just the wide variety of characters and interactions in Darktide, but the number of voice profiles you can choose from. I counted 18 different voice actors across all the short clips, some of whom are clearly doing more than one voice set…

They are really a lot of fun, and you can find more on the official website. Darktide developer blog. (opens in new tab) If you’re not up to date with the latest Darktide news, be sure to check it out. everything we know about Warhammer 40,000: Darktide.
