Earlier this morning, Warhammer 40K: Darktide began its downtime to prepare for the game’s full launch, following a two-week pre-order beta. While this means the game won’t be playable at all today (November 29), tomorrow the full game will release with various cosmetics, new missions, and even more content. In case you want to get in there the minute it launches, we have the details for you. Here’s what time Warhammer 40K: Darktide releases in various timezones.

When Does Darktide Release?

As you’ve guessed, the game will release on November 30 for PC. It won’t be available on its planned Xbox Series X|S platform from day one, though Fatshark has said that they will update players fairly soon after launch with its progress. Otherwise, PlayStation owners will be waiting a while to play it on their platform since it’s currently not planned for it. With that out of the way, here are the release times for the PC version across both Steam and Xbox Game Pass for PC:

  • PST: November 30 at 10 AM
  • CST: November 30 at 12 PM
  • EST: November 30 at 1 PM
  • BRT: November 30 at 3 PM
  • GMT: November 30 at 6 PM
  • CET: November 30 at 7 PM
  • SAST: November 30 at 8 PM
  • TRT: November 30 at 9 PM
  • SGT: December 1 at 2 AM
  • CST: December 1 at 2 AM
  • KST: December 1 at 3 AM
  • JST: December 1 at 3 AM
  • AEDT: December 1 at 5 AM
  • NZDT: December 1 at 7 AM

As you can see, the game will release at the same time for everyone, including through different time zones. While places like Vancouver and Los Angeles will be able to play the game on the morning of November 30, Australians and New Zealanders will see the game released in the early hours of December 1. A great way to kick off the festive spirit, if you ask us.

One final thing we’d like to note is for players who played the pre-order beta from November 17-29. Anyone who played the beta will earn the Beta Company Flak Helm, Recon Company Beta Helm and Psykana Collar, Recon Company Beta Vanguard Helm, and The Helm of the Devoted, bearing a Seal of Intolerance. We don’t know what these cosmetics look like at the time of writing, though they should be in your account when the game launches.
