Here are the patch notes for Patch #15: The Traitor Curse Part 1 which just went live on Steam and will be out shortly on the Microsoft Store.



Mission: Mercantile HL 70-04
Wyrmwood reports indicate that the Moebian VI have set up a base of operations in the Carnival. What's more, they are using some of the more disreputable areas of Mercantile HL 70-04 to produce stimms and distribute them out to the rest of the Hive. Get in there and recover samples we can analyse for traces of the Blight.

Dev note: This mission will be available on the mission board 1-2 hours after the patch release.

Hello Devoted Rejects!
My name is Mats Andersson, also known as the resident Combat guy, Lead Combat Designer or just “Ratherdone” around the interwebs. I’d like to tell the story of the Darktide team's new take on classes and all the player choice and build availability that comes with it. This update is the result of a wide collaboration throughout the project as changing the core of what defines a player character has far-reaching implications on many parts of the game.

First off, we’ve always looked at Darktide as a game where you define your own character and play style. Much more so than in our previous tide-games. The idea that we’d be less prescriptive in the way we present who you play always has some friction with the class system. It is just natural that presenting a class, full with loadout restrictions, abilities and talent packages, comes with a heavy lore-package and a specific “you’re choosing to play THIS GUY”. We wanted to change that. We wanted to make... Read more

  • Refining "+% Curio Chance as mission reward" perk should no longer display an error.

Devoted Rejects,
In this dev blog we are going to dive into three topics and upcoming changes that we will be making to them. The three topics are the Mission Board, Crafting, and Currencies/Resources within Darktide.

All the changes that we will be discussing in this dev blog have been in development, and are being prepared to launch in Patch #12 (1.1.20). These changes mark the next step in our support to the game, we will keep on monitoring feedback and evaluate future changes.

For clarity, these changes are not the only changes currently in development and being worked on by the team. We’re also still hard at work on Darktide for Xbox!

Mission Board We’re making some key changes to how the mission board generates its missions, while also expanding upon the available content. We are going to cover the details further into the dev blog, but for those of you who want a high level summary here are the changes that will be made:

Rejects, This is Catfish, Darktide Community Manager, here with another comm-link update.

The comms team is back from its break and so are comm-links! Due to the summer hiatus, this edition will be shorter than usual. We will also have a slower pace of Comm-links for the foreseeable future, to make way for more varied types of comms, such as dev blogs.

Here is what you can expect for the coming weeks on Darktide:
  • On August 3rd, we will publish a Dev Blog focusing on upcoming changes in Patch #12 (1.1.20), giving you an in-depth look at our plans for account based currencies, perk refinements, adjustments to crafting locks and options on the mission board.
  • In the first half of August we will be releasing Patch #12 alongside its patchnotes.
See you next week for the Dev Blog!

Here are the patch notes for Patch #9 Garbs and Penances, which just went live on Steam and will be available shortly on the Microsoft Store.



Updated Features
  • We have added new sets of class penances, with tiered cosmetic rewards to go along with them. The new penances provide more straightforward progression goals and are aimed at reinforcing the class roles, rewarding playing them well without disrupting the game.
    • The old class penances have been moved to a tab at the bottom of the penance menu under ‘Redacted.’ We consider them to be more of “trick challenges, " often requiring the entire team's collaboration and a break from normal gameplay. ...

Rejects,
This is Catfish, Darktide Community Manager, here with another comm-link update! We established these comm-links to give information about upcoming patches.
