Mission Board Evolution

The Mission Board is getting a revamp, ensuring your journey through Darktide remains fresh and exciting. Introducing “Maelstrom Missions,” a set of challenging new Conditions, each brimming with a mixture of new modifiers and existing ones. From waves of Specialists to hunting grounds and more, these missions guarantee a rewarding experience for those daring enough to conquer them. Brace yourself for exhilarating challenges, as these Maelstrom missions offer generous rewards in the form of XP and Ordo Dockets.

Furthermore, an “Auric-level Operations” mission board is on the horizon, exclusively tailored for level 30 players. With unique conditions and intensified challenges, these missions promise to test even the most seasoned adventurers. Darktide veterans will appreciate the focus on High Intensity conditions, offering a gripping test of their mettle.

Quickplay Bonuses & Improved Matchmaking

For those who lend a helping hand through Quickplay, rewards are in store. Experience, Ordo Dockets, Diamantine, and Plasteel will be bonuses upon mission conclusion, enhancing your contributions and teamwork.

Matchmaking is also stepping up its game. Players can now select the servers they wish to matchmake with, ensuring a tailor-made experience. Although server changes may affect gameplay due to latency, the game provides latency values to keep you informed.

Dynamic Mission Board & Crafting Enhancements

The dynamic system of the Mission Board has undergone significant changes, promising a more diverse array of conditions and an improved challenge balance. This refined system guarantees a rich variety of mission experiences for players of all levels.

Crafting is also in for a change. Item Refinement, previously known as Perk re-rolling, is undergoing a transformation. Refine your items with more precision, choose your perks, blessings, or both, and get ready to experience a more tailored adventure.

Shared Currencies for a Unified Experience

Darktide is embracing a new approach to currencies. All character-bound currencies are moving towards an account-bound wallet. No more wallet hopping; now you can freely distribute your hard-earned rewards across all your characters. With this change, you gain the flexibility to manage your resources as you see fit, elevating your immersion and choice within the game.
