The pre-order beta for Warhammer 40,000: Darktide has opened the doors to Hive Tertium, letting players fight against the forces of Chaos before the game comes out.
The Ruinous Powers have a lot of tricks, but none of them can stop the game from going offline, either for planned maintenance or because of a failed handshake connection. This is also why it is so important to keep an eye on the server status.
This article will try to keep track of the server status of Warhammer 40,000: Darktide so you know when you won’t be able to protect humanity from those who want to corrupt it.
Read on for more information about possible connection problems that could happen to you during the pre-order beta and when the game officially comes out.
Failed Handshake Connectivity Warhammer 40,000 Darktide
The servers for Warhammer 40,000: Darktide are now online, but players are having a lot of problems in the first few days of the pre-order beta. They include crashes and different kinds of errors, such as the more common “failed handshake,” which makes it impossible for them to join games.
Status of the Server – Online Developer Fatshark knows about the failed handshake timeout error and has set up a forum thread where players can post logs to help fix it.
At the moment, nobody knows what caused it, but some players have used VPNs to get around it. As with any unofficial way around a problem, you may want to be careful.
It’s also important to know that the status of Warhammer 40,000: Darktide’s servers can change during the pre-order beta.
The developer said before that “there may be different downtimes, and continued uptime is not a guarantee.” It plans to use these two weeks to make sure the launch goes as smoothly as possible.
We’ll let you know what’s going on with Warhammer 40,000: Darktide’s servers, but it’s also a good idea to keep an eye on the game’s official Twitter and forums, where you might learn about planned downtime.
