“Don’t Wait” for Crossplay in Warhammer 40,000: Darktide

On the game’s official support page, the developer said that the game will not have cross-play or cross-save at launch. “At this time, we can’t comment on when or if crossplay and crosssave will be available,” said a representative for Fatshark, the game’s developer.

In response to a user on the game’s Steam forum, Fatshark said that he intends to explore the idea of ​​crossplay between Steam and Game Pass on PC, but doesn’t know when the feature will be available. “We’re not saying it’s not possible or it’s not being explored, but we’re not saying ‘yes, day 1 will come’ either. We like the idea and are exploring it, but don’t wait for that,” the developer said.

Warhammer 40,000: Darktide is a co-op focused game and anyone who wants to take full advantage of what the game has to offer will need to find friends who are on the same chosen platform. As much as the title reaches Game Pass at its launch (and that in itself already attracts many players), the game already has some 4,000 reviews on the Valve platform, which add up to 70% acceptance.

Most of the negative comments refer to the lack of optimization of the game. Fatshark recently published hardware recommendations for several different graphics configurations. In the system requirements outlined on the game’s Steam page, the studio recommends anything from a GeForce GTX 970/Radeon Rx 570 up to an RTX 3060/RTX 2060/RX 5700 XT, strangely putting the two NVIDIA GPUs of different generations on the same level. .

For those who want to extract the full graphic potential of the game in 4K, with graphics and effects via ray tracing to the maximum, Fatshark recommends nothing less than an RTX 4080, a video card that costs more than R$ 10,000.
