The action shooter game Warhammer 40K: Darktide by Fatshark is set to launch on Xbox Series X|S with a major update in tow.
This update is the biggest one yet, surpassing previous patches, and it includes a complete overhaul of the game’s classes. The aim is to provide players with more freedom to customize and play their characters in new and exciting ways.
The revamped talent trees offer a much deeper and more diverse range of specialization options within the framework of the existing classes.
In essence, players can still choose to recreate the previous classes, but they also have the option to take a completely different approach. For example, a Veteran character can now become a powerful sharpshooter, a supportive leader enhancing their comrades’ effectiveness, or a stealthy spec-ops fighter.
A newly released trailer showcases these exciting changes.
PC players need not worry about being left behind, as they will also receive the update simultaneously with the Xbox release.
The Xbox Series X|S version of Warhammer 40K: Darktide will be available on October 4. Patch #13 will be released on the same day as a free update for the PC version of the game.
It remains to be seen if this significant update and the Xbox release will breathe new life into Darktide, given that while the original release had its fair share of fans, it also received some criticism.
