Warhammer 40,000: Darktide will officially release on November 30. However, players who pre-ordered the game are already playing its beta version. As you would expect, the game is far from perfect and requires immediate developer attention.

Darktide received an important patch yesterday that aimed to improve the players' experience. Dozens of bugs were squashed and new features were introduced. Several QoL tweaks and balancing changes were made as well.

Players can now purchase characters and weapon skins via Armory Exchange, and Tier 1 and 2 pants of Zealot’s Penance are more distinct now. EOR (end-of-round) Cards are added so that players know what exactly they have unlocked.

You can read the rest of the highlights below.

New Features
  • Crafting Feature
    • UI for interacting with the workshop is available
    • Consecrate functionality is available for players.
    • Players can earn crafting materials from missions via pickups.
    • Hadron’s Workshop as an interaction point is also available.
Quality of Life
  • Added EOR (end-of-round) Cards to show better what you unlock.
  • Sire Melk’s Requisitorium should provide better items overall by only having pristine/mastercrafted items.
UI/UX
  • We’ve added better interfacing for some cases where invalid names are entered during character creation, making it clearer that the chosen name/input is not accepted.
  • Fixed unlocalized strings in the settings menu.
  • Fixing some localization on some cosmetics items.
  • Improved item sorting by rarity - should now consider item rating too (shouldn’t crash now either!).
Balance Adjustments
  • Setup separate weapon-specific dodge curves for light melee weapons, tune-up separate zealot baseline:
    • Setup separate dodge curve for Zealot class, increase baseline dodge distance to 2.75m over 0.4s (was 2.5m over 0.4s).
    • Increase dodge slide friction speed threshold to 5.5m/s (from 4.5) - we don’t break down as hard on dodge-sliding.
    • Setup weapon specific curves for agile dodge profiles to allow customized behavior:
      • For Atrox Tactical Axes and Maccabian Duelling Swords: Custom curve 2.75m over 0.35s with fine-tuned end of curve for chaining.
      • For Catachan Mk III Combat Blade: Custom curve 2.9m over 0.35s with fine-tuned end of curve for chaining.

The complete patch notes of Warhammer 40,000: Darktide Patch 1.0.8 are available on the official site.
