The  Wandering Servo Skulls disappear after 10-15 seconds everytime I see one, it says 30 seconds though.....also the holy armour?  Have played through the whole game and dlc as puritan but still havent maxed out the puritan bar? Am I missing something cause the new armour looks good?

Is there a hidden way to disable tutorials? I am tired of EVERY time I play this game having the tutorials replay. There are no indicator in the "Options"

I've the same problem that PADoPL. Game has huge problem on PS4 Pro to run smoothly in multiplayer coop mode. It freezes all the time and screen tearing is quite bad. Please do something about it beacause game is virtually unplayable in multiplayer at this state. 

47 days ago

I've just bought Warhammer 40 000 for PS4 with my 3 friends. We all have PS4 Pro consoles but the game runs very, very badly in multiplayer with 4 players. It runs so bad that we can't play it together despite the fact that we REALLY want to. We bought this game strictly for coop play.


In single player game runs OK. When second player joins the game (online multiplayer) it is still playable but seems to run a little worse. The problem begins when 3rd player joins the game and experience is even worse after 4th player joins the game. After 4th player joins the game it runs terribly for all of us (not in the hub but in missions) to the point that from time to time (quite often) game freezes for everybody for 0,5 seconds.  All of this happens in the first missions right after tutorial. The problem is the worst when players are near each other fighting with enemies.


I'm not sure but the problem seems to be not with graphics but with the processor. Maybe there are too many math calculations happening for 4 players in coop? It seems that no matter what graphics option we choose the problem is there.


To be honest we really HOPE for some kind of patch to this so PLEASE fix this somehow. Until this is fixed we simply can't play the game together.


Two more suggestions:


1) I would also like to see option to disable automatic movement when shooting/fighting. Currently when enemy is out of range for the weapon to hit him the player is automatically moved towards the enemy until it can damage it. I would prefer to move manually to enemy on every occasion. It is more demanding but also feels more that I'm playing the game not the AI ;) If I'm not mistaken Van Helsing on PS4 didn't have this auto move mechanics which was good (Diablo 3 also don't have auto move in combat).


2) Please also change the way zoom in and zoom out works with the right stick. The game is dynamic (which is fun) and when I rotate camera often I might occasionally zoom in or out while doing it. There should be some kind of zoom lock option, or maybe the ability to zoom in and out only when menu is displayed.


Game is great and I can't wait to play it with my friends but like I said we don't want to ruin our first playthrough experience so we hope for the patch that fixes the framerate/stability in 4 player coop for PS4.

Psalm codes work? Or wait for the update with technoadept?

On PS4 I am getting an environmental bug where if there are chains hanging from the ceiling they flash in and out of existence and cause this sort of black flashing on the screen. It is most notable in the early levels on the Martyr. Other than that a tonof jaggies, game looks and plays great.

Is there any way to turn off the tooltips?  Getting tired of going through them each time I start up the game.  I looked for an option to disable them, but couldn't find anything.

Also having the issue that the tarot card from the Desperate Crusade is locked even though I’ve done that priority assignment.

Also is it right we can now add 2 major tarot’s to a mission? The game allows me to but I’m unsure if I’m being rewarded for it or not, or if it is a glitch

62 days ago
I have noticed that when using the Tarot card system with an Intel mission, when you go to start the mission, you crash to the Xbox One dashboard everytime.


Also, the Forgotten Arsenal merchant no longer has any Relics for sale. Was this intentional?

Hi Devs, thanks for the amazing update for us console gamers!


A question regarding local Coop Campaign: is there a way the local coop will provide character growth/character creation to 2nd player or the 2nd player progression is locked and is a mere assist to the player 1?


I belive would be great to have a 100% Diablo experience where 2 players can start the campaign together, get loot and build their character at the same time...

The patch is great so far, but I have noticed a discrepancy with one of the Tarot Cards. The Martyrdom Tarot Card requires you to complete the DLC Desperate Crusade to unlock. I have already completed the priority mission but the card is not unlocked for some reason. 
Thank you for the feedback, we will investigate this issue, and we will unlock it retroactively.

Combat is actually slower. For example the boltgun single shot has a greater delay between shots and there is a very annoying delay in shooting when my character switch targets. 


Cooldowns are not working correct on weapon skills. My character shoots much slower.

Everything is running alot smoother can't wait to go through the campaign again. Only problem I'm having is I can't access any of my extras, Pets,Footprints,Emotes etc. Is anyone else having this issue at all?

We know about this issue, the problem is at our side and we are working to solve it right now. Sorry for the inconvenience, we will fix it as soon as possible!

The control and combat experience in the missions is so much responsive and smoother now. And making the starmap missions useful again via tarot cards feels so much better than the tarot mission generator.


Now it makes fun to collect and level up items again, because crafting seems straightforward (at least for Diablo 3 players
