Developed and published by Fatshark, Warhammer 40K: Darktide is an action video game set in the Warhammer 40K universe with up to four cooperative players taking on preselected waves of enemies (AI). Darktide lets players customize their own character rather than using typical character selection screens, so they can play as anyone they want, from fearsome veteran soldiers to powerful psykers.

As Darktide was designed for 4 players, you will always be matched up with 3 other players when playing missions. The question Can you play Warhammer 40K: Darktide solo? Let’s find out in this guide.

Can you Play Warhammer 4OK Darktide Solo?

The game does not allow you to play Darktide completely by solo or offline. A player’s matchmaking is automatically activated when they sign up for multiplayer matches. When a team member leaves during gameplay and is replaced by a bot, that bot will only last until it finds another player through matchmaking – which can happen anytime during the mission.


Since the enemies and overall game difficulty are designed for four-player groups, players won’t be able to play missions without their teammates, but those who want to complete missions at their own pace without worrying about being interrupted by other players may find some hope in the future. 

This concludes our guide on whether you can play solo in Warhammer 40K: Darktide or not. The game has just been released, so check our other guides for more updates on the game.

I am a political science graduate and turned my hobby into a passion. When I am not writing, I am playing games. I love games that revolve around the main “Hero” character. My love for COD started when I was 18 and since then it has been growing. Other games that I love are Assasin’s Creed, Grand Theft Auto V. Currently building an affair with the story-based games.
