The Fatshark development team has released a new trailer that introduces one of the character classes of the upcoming cooperative first-person action game Warhammer 40,000: Darktide. The focus of the video will be on Pyker, the psychic that can blow the mind of the enemy.
In their blog, the developers detail the history of this class, as well as its features. Those who are going to play for Pyker will have to learn to move during the battle and take a comfortable position at a necessary distance from the enemy horde so as not to be crushed.
The Psychic will gradually increase the level of Peril, which must be managed intelligently, as it can cause the hero to explode. When killing enemies with the unique Brain Blast skill, the Pykers will receive Warp charges, becoming stronger. Players will be able to use these charges to throw off opponents and cause them damage.
In addition to abilities, this class will be armed with a combat sword for close combat and a stab-revolver for long range. Another important feature of the Psycher is the increased damage against elite opponents.
Warhammer 40,000: Darktide is set to be released on November 30 for PC and Xbox Series X/S.
