Fatshark’s co-op Ogryn celebration simulator Warhammer 40,000: Darktide has been in preorder beta for slightly below every week, and in that point gamers have been stating varied points. Chief amongst these points: crashes. Whereas I have been fortunate sufficient to solely have Darktide crash on me twice, loads of others have discovered it to be much less secure. 

The patch notes for model 1.0.7 establish six several types of crashes which have now been purged: matchmaking crashes, cutscene alt-tabbing crashes, falling-out-of-bounds crashes, crashes brought on by beginning a mission with a particular feat outfitted, crashes brought on by sure weapon traits, and a number of crashes brought on by the Beast of Nurgle. As if we did not have sufficient causes to hate Beasts of Nurgle already.

Fatshark says that, whereas most of the causes of crashes have been handled, “there may be one massive class of crashes manifested as ‘GPU-hangs’, that in all probability nonetheless will show its ugly face at occasions. That mentioned, we’re on trajectory to have a secure game on the time of launch due largely to the numerous gamers which are serving to present us with the required knowledge to assist deal with these points.” Collectively all of us do our half to serve the Graphics Card Imperium.

As for brand spanking new options added by this update, the massive one is Oska Krall the Barber-Chirurgeon. This blood-spattered member of the Mourningstar’s crew could be discovered within the hub, where he affords the possibility to return into character customization and tinker along with your face, hair, scars, and tattoos. When you’re beginning to remorse that droopy moustache or wish to roll a full-blown Ogryn-Orson Welles, now you may lastly eliminate it. Although Krall mentions a value, it is presently free to switch your look.

This update additionally brings with it a giant honking block of textual content within the top-left of the display screen that claims “Pre-Order Beta Take a look at November 17-29, 2022.” Presumably it is there to assist out the numerous gamers who preordered Darktide so they might play the beta after which had been confused by the very fact it is a beta. Emperor protect us.

As for steadiness adjustments, the Psyker continues being reworked after a nerf from the preliminary beta was poorly acquired. The newest change removes the Peril price of pushing with the pressure sword, whereas barely lowering its vary. “Peril price continues to be there on the push follow-up, although,” Fatshark says, “which ought to assist to steadiness its potential to disregard the stagger discount.”
