Based on what has worked for other players, please try the following -

  • Ensure you have appropriate Anti-Virus and Firewall exceptions in place for Darktide
  • Check that your Anti-Virus software is up to date

If these don’t do the trick, please try disabling your Anti-Virus software.

Let me know how it goes!
