This is Catfish, Darktide Community Manager, here with another comm-link update! We established these comm-links to answer some of the community’s questions and to give information about upcoming patches.
In the first week of May we will release Patch #9 - Garbs and Penances which will feature tiered sets of cosmetics for each class that you’ll earn by completing new penances. These earnable cosmetics will work similarly to existing penance cosmetics, with several tiers for each class.
The old class penances will be moved to a tab at the bottom of the penance menu under ‘Redacted’. Here you can see the Veteran and Ogryn’s final tier cosmetics!
As part of Patch #9 we’ll also have some changes to Blessings (including another tier of Power Cyler), balance tweaks and bug fixes. Full patch notes will be available once Patch #9 has been deployed.
Following Patch #9 we will be deploying a content drop, which will be coupled with a large patch. Here is a sneak peek of concept art from a new mission we are working on as part of the content drop, that will be located in the Throneside Zone.
Going forward the cadence of these comm-links will be changing slightly and you can expect the next edition to be on the 18th May.
We look forward to seeing some of you at Warhammer Fest this weekend!
