Helldivers 2 has released a new patch that aims to improve various issues for PC users. Helldivers 2 players have struggled with stability issues since launch, and the new update will hopefully improve things for many users.
The launch of Helldivers 2 saw PC and PlayStation users struggle with severe matchmaking, stability, and login issues until Arrowhead Game Studios released a couple of updates that remedied some of the problems. Despite these fixes, many users on both platforms still report issues, although Arrowhead has made it clear that it intends to fix them in the near future. It seems that Arrowhead has released its newest update in an effort to fix these problems.
Helldivers 2 released a new Steam patch that addressed server capacity log-in issues, authentication requests, and progression not tracking. The update also improved the visibility of error messages and added a countdown timer that shows when a new login attempt will be made. Previously, players were sometimes not receiving mission rewards that they had earned, but it seems that PC players might not have to deal with this issue anymore. The patch notes explain that Arrowhead now believes it has fully fixed mission rewards applying properly, but will continue to monitor the game to ensure that this is the case. The update also revealed that in exchange for players missing out on progression rewards, Arrowhead is working on a future Helldivers 2 event with increased rewards, but did not offer a release window for it. Arrowhead did not mention when PlayStation players can expect a similar patch.
There were worries that the potential popularity of Helldivers 2 and its promising gameplay would be squandered by persisting bugs and stability issues. However, Helldivers 2's Steam rating has already begun to recover following its Mixed rating at launch, as it now sits at a Mostly Positive rating of 75% despite there still being some bugs. At the time of writing, Helldivers 2 is Steam's top-selling game globally and boasts over 150,000 concurrent players. Despite Arrowhead's consistent efforts, fans should be prepared to still encounter bugs for now, especially seeing that Helldivers 2's previous update failed to fix some of the issues that it aimed to resolve.
Helldivers 2 managed to power past its many launch bugs and became Sony's highest-ever played game on Steam. It broke the record by surpassing God of War's player peak of over 73,000, but Helldivers 2's player peak has only continued to surge, with its all-time peak now sitting at over 155,000 users. In light of the game's new popularity, an Arrowhead executive recently addressed the game's use of a controversial feature.
