A co-op shooter set in the 40K universe, Warhammer 40:000: Darktide released late last year turned out to be generally good, but it is much inferior to the previous games of the Fatshark studio – the Vermintide series, and still suffers from quite serious problems that the developer is in no hurry to solve. Because of this, the mediocre ratings of the game on Steam recently dropped to “mostly negative” (only 33% of positive reviews in the last 30 days).
And finally, the developer clarified the situation with the game: in an open letter to the community they admitted that they did not live up to the expectations of the players and will focus on feedback and comments in the coming months. In particular, Fatshark promises to implement a full-fledged crafting system in Darktide, better rewards during the player’s progress, as well as improved stability and performance of the game.
It also means delaying the release on Xbox Series X|S, the release of seasonal content, and the release of premium “cosmetics”: ” We just couldn’t continue down this path, knowing that we have not addressed many feedback areas in the game today.”
Well, if you still haven’t bought Warhammer 40:000: Darktide, but have been planning to do so, it seems best to wait for the promised big update for now.
