Dark Heresy Second Edition Beta Version 2.0: Update #2

News From the Developers of the Dark Heresy Second Edition Beta

Hello Dark Heresy Second Edition Beta Testers!

Every Wednesday, we will post a weekly update to keep you informed about the progress of the beta. This post will include any big news involving the beta, guidance on where we would like you to focus your attention in the coming week, and a PDF update to the beta document to keep you informed of the most recent tweaks and changes to the Dark Heresy Second Edition core rules.

This week’s update (pdf, 4.3 MB) can be found on the beta support page and includes new items (in red). Additionally, there is a dedicated thread in the Game Mechanics forum in which you can discuss any feedback directly related to this week’s update. As always, you can email us directly at [email protected] to best ensure we see your feedback too. As a reminder, when you submit your feedback via e-mail, it is most helpful to us if you consolidate multiple questions and comments into a single message, rather than sending a separate e-mail for each question or comment. Testing the Beta As mentioned above, each week we will concentrate on a certain aspect of the Dark Heresy Second Edition rules that we would like you to focus on testing in that week. This will allow us to take a deeper look at individual features, and help facilitate more in-depth discussions. Keep in mind, however, that these topics are just the focus for the week, and you are welcome to continue testing whatever aspect of the rules you wish at your own pace. Any and all feedback is welcome at any time.

For the next week, the focus is on Chapter V: Armoury and Chapter VI: Psychic Powers. We’d like playtesters to review these chapters for completeness and usefulness. Are there any weapons, gear items, or Psychic Powers missing? Or ones that aren’t essential for the core game? Buy some new gear and powers for your characters and try them out in games to ensure they all are fun to use and add to the game experience. Also, look over vehicles (especially living steeds) to make sure they work and perhaps try them out in the game too!

We look forward to your thoughts and opinions as the beta progresses. Thank you all for your invaluable feedback and insight during this process! We appreciate your help in making Dark Heresy Second Edition the best game possible!
