Arrowhead Confirms Helldivers 2 PS5 Patch, Matchmaking Fixes Inbound | Push Square
12.02.2024 - 23:48
Helldivers 2 experienced a somewhat chaotic descent from high orbit, deploying onto PS5 and PC simultaneously and paying for it, with players experiencing matchmaking issues and unable to link up with their comrades. Thankfully, developer Arrowhead is doing its part to keep the intergalactic war effort going. Confirmation of a hotfix has been received and is expected imminently on PS5, having already been deployed on PC.
While the game's initial push faltered somewhat under the strain, the great news is that the Swedish developer's smash hit is delightful at its core. Once these teething issues are sorted out, this humble scribe thinks Sony might finally have a solid, compelling shooter foundation to build upon. We'll be fascinated to see how the community takes to the Warbonds progression system, which seems a refreshing change of pace from the usual service fare.

Khayl Adam is the second best video game journalist Australia has ever produced, and his ambitions of world domination have (thus far) been curbed by the twin siren songs of strategy games and CRPGs. He has always felt an affinity for the noble dachshund, the best kind of dog.
Me and my nephew have been playing it tonight and are loving it.
It has a good mix of shooter and strategy, the war bonds don't seem to be too grindy especially if you play either medium or up. Super credits aren't hard to come by both in the bonds and in game. I just wish it had a more Apex style pin system to let teammates know about points of interest.
I've been playing it with friends throughout the day, and I can confidently say this is the best multiplayer game PlayStation has published in over a generation. I'm very happy for Arrowhead's success.
Fun game. Hopefully they’ll fix the matchmaking issues soon. Soloed most of my missions. Also, customizing control bindings doesn’t work for me, only default settings does.
What have we learned about buying games at launch? DON'T
What? Arrowhead is a Swedish studio? Maybe I shouldn’t been so harsh to my fellow countrymen… I will repurchase it after a couple of patches.
Why not? I had it pre ordered and jumped straight in as soon as it launched. Yeah there's a few teething issues to get on top of but it's obvious that the dev team are on it so the way I see it, by the time all the bugs are ironed out and everyone who's waiting then jumps in, I'll have already had the chance to get familiar with the game and level up. Plus I'll then appreciate the game even more as it'll only get better. Played for
