Occasionally the Warhammer 40k Darktide servers will go down for multiple reasons. Sometimes the servers are just experiencing issues or are down for routine maintenance. In either case, it's a good idea to learn how to check server statuses, so you are not left wondering if the Darktide Servers are down.
How to check Warhammer 40k Darktide Server Status
To check the status of Darktide servers, your best shot is to view the Darktide Comms Twitter account. The Darktide Comms account is an official Twitter account that posts live updates regarding Darktide. One of these updates is whenever the servers go down for maintenance or are having issues. You can also check the Official Darktide Discord for updates by both users and developers on the server's status. Down Detector or a similar service is usually a good option, but it doesn't appear any of the 3rd services are monitoring Darktide yet. Because of this, your best option to check server status is to watch Darktide Comms and the official Discord.
