Warhammer 40,000: Darktide fans have been enjoying the content and features introduced by Patch 1.0.20 released a week ago. However, like most games today, the game’s journey hasn’t exactly been smooth sailing as many players are encountering bugs and issues.

Developer Fatshark has released a hotfix recently to address these lingering issues. AMD ray tracing support can now be tweaked in the launcher settings, and the Forcestaff VFX has been reverted to the previous version.

The ability to auto-detect high-performance GPUs on laptops is enabled by default, and a connection time-out is added to help prevent infinite loops from occurring when resetting settings. Players can also reset keybinds at the start of the game. The patch has removed player outlines as they weren’t working as they should, but it will return at a later update.
