In late October, we heard some rumors about Fatshark stating that the progress of Warhammer 40,000: Darktide beta will carry over to the official release. And although it was pretty exciting, it wasn’t long until a developer shut down the rumor, not totally, on the official Steam discussion page for Darktide.
The developer stated that while they understand the importance of the time spent on the beta, they are not committed or confident enough if they can stick to this plan. Primarily due to technical priorities and features they had to implement before looking up to this.
However, it didn’t take long for Fatshark to release an official statement regarding the matter. Five days prior to the full release, the official account for Warhammer 40,000: Darktide on Twitter tweeted the answer to the question..
Does the progress from Darktide beta carry over?
It is usually unorthodox for games to save the beta progress to the full game, Fatshark doesn’t seem to care. The answer is yes. You will not lose the hours you spent gathering experience in vain. You will be able to transfer your progress from the Darktide pre-order beta to the full game that launches on November 30.
The Warhammer community met Fatshark’s statement with generally favorable responses. Most were people who were deeply engrained in the beta of Darktide. The Warhammer community met Fatshark’s statement with generally favorable responses. Most were people deeply engrained in making any kind of progress in the beta gameplay of Darktide. And people who spent most of their time gathering as much experience about the classes, weapons, and characters as possible.
After a big delay since last year, we’ve never been closer to Warhammer 40,000: Darktide’s full release. Fatshark officially slated the game for launch on the 30th of November for PC. And while it’s logical for the game to release on Xbox, Warhammer 40,000: Darktide is yet to have a release date for Xbox Series X and S.
I’m pretty keen to see what Fatshark improved on the pre-order beta. If you want my first impressions, everything seems like it’s going as planned. Also, now I can see why the developers chose to delay Darktide for almost an entire year. It was one hell of a rational decision. Maybe without it, we could’ve seen a beta in a worse state.
And maybe if the delay didn’t happen, we couldn’t save our progress from the Darktide beta and transfer it to the full game. So perhaps we’ve got the best-case scenario. Regardless, what do you think? Did you enjoy the Darktide pre-order beta? Feel free to share your thoughts in the comment section below.
