    If there is a way to play solo I haven't found it -- the initial prologue is solo, but then the missions turn into 4 player affairs. There might be a way to play with Bots if it can't find people, but I'm not certain you can directly choose that option.

    Rejects!
    Welcome to the second day in Tertium, and as you clamber out of your makeshift barracks and put on your boots to stem the tide of Chaos, we are rolling out Hotfix 1.0.13. This hotfix contains crash fixes and a much-needed fix to toughness.

    Patch Notes
    Crash fixes

    • Fixed a crash that could happen when using one of Psyker's talents.
    • Resolved a crash that could occur during login to the character selection view.
    • Fixed a crash that could occur when entering the headgear equipment view.
    • Fixed a crash that could occur when clicking "Exit Psykhanum" twice.
    • Fixed a crash that could happen when players used a melee weapon special.
    • Fixed a crash that was detected for users that were leaving the Psykhanum.
    • Fixed an access violation crash.
    • Fixed other various, unspecifiable crashes.

    Localization

    • Improved localization
    • Clarified melee push description to be more accurate, indicating this action will be used when you have no weapon equipped.

    Cosmetics

    • Resolved some placeholder text that would be shown when inspecting cosmetics and weapon skins in the Commodore’s Vestures and when browsing the trinkets menu.
    • Fixed Psyker's Imperial Edition chest plate clipping through the jacket and causing the cosmetic to not match the marketing image.

    Bug Fixes & Tweaks

    • Fixed an issue that caused toughness bleedthrough damage on toughness over 100. Toughness over 100 on any class should now function as expected.
    • Resolved an issue when using a controller in the settings menu, where dropdown lists would not work as expected.
    • Added stat tracking for some platform achievements
    • Fixed an issue that when an image in the Commodore’s Vestures failed to load, the entire store would fail to show.
    • Increased experience and Ordo Dockets when finishing a mission on Malice, Heresy, and Damnation.
    • Fixed an issue where users would get raytracing assigned as on by default if the users hardware does not support raytracing (improves performance for some users) *Read Notes from our techpriest [This patch note line has been edited for clarity]
    • Network fix to handle proper disconnects more nicely in LAN transport.

    Part 2:

    Top Known Issues
    • Ray Tracing is currently disabled for AMD and Intel GPU users while investigating issues related to our support for these GPU’s. We are working closely with our hardware partners to resolve this as soon as possible. Until then, ray tracing is turned off by default to avoid any issues in playing the game.
    • Optimization and performance. This is an area we continue to work on, and we see issues with performance.
    • We are continuing to monitor stability. Players should notice improvements with each subsequent patch.
    • We currently don’t support users on IPv6-only networks. This often means a player requires a VPN to play the game. The intention is to support IPv6 in the near future.
    • Some players might experience a sudden crash to desktop with dialogue popup. Switching between windowed mode and fullscreen can result in adjusted resolution and deadlock in some rare cases.
    • Working on delivering missing Twitch Drops to a select few players. We hope to have this resolved within a week.
    • Some users may be missing their pre-order bonuses, and beta tester helmets. We are working on resolving this issue so you all receive appropriate cosmetics as expected. For more information, please visit this link.

    A Word From Our Techpriests
    We have seen a lot of comments about raytracing being on by default for many of our users and we have been investigating this for quite some time. We thought we had caught all cases of this in the release patch but more issues have been found.

    We have managed to identify another issue that affects players on GPUs that do not support raytracing at all. The issue is that we have faulty fallbacks for settings that are removed from the settings menu because they are not supported on the GPU causing them to fall back to true instead of false.

    The patch for this will reset your settings and re-detect optimal settings from the launcher, when the game is launched we should set proper defaults for you that sets `rt_reflections_enabled` and `rtxgi_enabled` to false.

    It is important to note that our user settings file contains multiple other raytracing related settings, these settings are sub settings to `rt_reflections_enabled` and `rtxgi_enabled` and controls the behavior of those features. Changing those settings or the settings being true has no bad effect on performance whatsoever. In fact some of those features being enabled is because they enable optimizations to the raytracing features. Turning all of them off is not necessarily the most optimal state for performance should you want to enable raytracing in the future.

    There is one exception to this and it is the setting called "rtxgi_scale". This setting while controlling the quality of the dynamic rtxgi if `rtxgi_enabled = true` will also control the quality of the baked rtxgi if the setting `baked_ddgi = true` (the setting called "Global Illumination" under advanced settings). When you set rtxgi_scale to 0 that means that the baked rtxgi will also be off. While this will give you better framerate, and might be another reason for following the guides gives you better framerate, some levels that rely highly on this baked global illumination for their looks will become excessively dark as they will lack sufficient light contribution in heavily occluded areas. This is the reason why we decided to not support turning off Global Illumination from the settings menu as it makes some levels almost unplayable due to the darkness for which we have no suitable fallback.

    You are of course always free to tweak your settings manually and play around with the different options we give you in there but please do note that there is an intended logic to these settings where it is quite easy to set them up to conflict with each other. This is something that our settings menus and launcher detection takes into consideration. Any manual editing of the `user_settings.config` may result in settings ending up in a permanently broken state from which the settings menu might not be able to save you, in this case using the reset button in the launcher is your best solution to the problem. That option will clear all your render settings and start you over fresh. Please be aware that manual editing of the `user_settings.config`, especially modifying read/write properties of that file will make it very hard for us to diagnose/debug your problems should you have them so when reporting bugs related to settings make sure to mention if you have edited them manually to avoid confusion. There is no shame in this, we just want to know this so that we can offer the proper assistance.

    I'm diggin this game's soundtrack:

    Good moment in the game when you get to the drop around the 40 second mark in the track and "Deliver the Emperor's Judgement" comes on your screen.

    Updated an hour ago, played a game. No issues with saved characters.

    I have to say, it's been rather addictive game. Lot's of fun, especially when paired with a team that knows how to play.
    Too bad there is no crossplay with Steam. It's noticeable that the player pool is limited.

    Actually there is crossplay with Stean, just not in a Team together.

    Advice from comments section:
    "Don't know if it's useful for you but you can actually increase lod distance in the userconfig file located in the appdata folder. It defaults to 1 but increasing it to 5 removes nearly all lod pop in. I also increased shadow res detail from 2048 to 4096 for as nice boost in shadow quality."

    This works really well.

    I tried that.
    Performance went down by 10-15 fps. But the game seems to have a lot less stutter from streaming areas.

    Yeah, lot smoother now. I had little to not noticable FPS drop.
    I only tried 5 and left it at that, some said 3 is the sweetspot for performance.

    Since releasing Warhammer 40,000: Darktide last week, Tertium has become a popular travel destination for many of you. It’s very humbling to see this level of excitement and know that we appreciate the support. That said, we also know that our launch was challenging for many players who had issues - some of which we are still working through.

    Our commitment remains the same - for all players to enjoy our game. Our hope is that many of you can see the progress towards this commitment in the past few weeks, having released 8 hotfixes and updates since the pre-order beta launch - 4 of which were released since full launch last week. This isn’t to say we have addressed everything. In fact, we are not fully satisfied and still have work to do.

    Our biggest update yet will land next week and will include further improvements, additional weapons, fixes, private sessions, and more.
