Warhammer 40,000: Darktide's pre-order beta has opened the gates of Hive Tertium, seeing players take up arms against the forces of Chaos in the lead-up to launch.

Read on below for details about potential connectivity issues that may affect you during the pre-order beta and going into launch proper.
