    I resubbed earlier this year for a couple months for nostalgias' sake. there are about 700 characters logged on Darktide at any given time. Most are people are just hitting to level up, but there is a place where everyone PKs called 150 island. It's a constant battle of around 30 people at any given time.

    I need to quit MMO's in general I think :p Great news for the core crowd though.
