Helldivers 2 patch fixes quickplay and crash bugs as Arrowhead work on AFK kick option and login rate limits

Last night I tried to host a Helldivers 2 co-op mission and the "ready up" button froze up. I spammed it in a panic while the randos in my voice channel fumed at the delay. Then I popped us out of the drop pods, attempted to quit the game in embarrassment, and the PC promptly crashed. Another blow for managed democracy!

Helldivers 2 Releases Important New Update

Arrowhead Game Studios releases update 1.000.10 for Helldivers 2, making additional improvements to game performance, log in related issues, as well as additional crash fixes. The latest patch arrives after a tumultuous weekend in which Arrowhead activated a double XP and Requisitions modifier in Helldivers 2 as a way to apologize for the server issues at launch. Unfortunately, the act caused an even bigger bottleneck as more and more players attempted to access the game, which ultimately compounded the problems even more.

We suppose this shouldn't be a revelatory statement for Arrowhead Game Studios to make, but its recently released co-op shooter, Helldivers 2, will remain a strictly co-op shooter. The PS5 and PC title has been a big hit so far, with overwhelmingly positive reception, selling over a million copies at this point, and reaching record high figures on Steam for PlayStation. Despite that, there's some pushback against the game from those demanding it add competitive, or PvP, modes.

While any developer out there would kill to have the player base that Helldivers 2 is currently enjoying, the unexpected explosion in popularity is currently too much for the game's servers to handle. It's forced the developers to implement a limit on how many players can log in at once, in hopes of steadying the ship while work on expanding the servers continues.

Now, Arrowhead Games Studios has reportedly capped its concurrent players to around 450,000 to improve server stability.

Helldivers 2 Team To “Recruit” More People To Help Rollout Post-Launch Content

Lately, there’s been a rather disturbing trend in the video game industry from the developers/publishers. They tend to make video games that “aren’t complete” or “aren’t polished” by the time they launch, and then dedicate tons of time to trying to “fix it” in post-launch updates or try to have plenty of post-launch content announced before they even know if the main game will be a success. This has backfired on many teams, and it’ll continue to do so when the quality isn’t there. However, in the case of Helldivers 2, despite a few bumps at launch, they’re doing well on PC and are actively trying to bring in more people to help create more content for players as a result.

Still, they're doing their utmost as the game becomes PlayStation's biggest PC release to date.

Helldivers 2: Failed To Connect To Server Error Explained

has been a smash hit for developer Arrowhead Game Studios, but its massive launch has unfortunately resulted in some matchmaking and connection issues. Players may encounter a "" error in when trying to start the game. Even though missions are playable alone, the game is always online, since player actions are constantly contributing to the in-universe Galactic War pitting Super Earth against the Terminids and Automatons. While frustrating, this server error is actually a case of suffering from its own success.

Helldivers 2 creative director says games have to "earn" microtransactions, which is why its purchasable revolver is anti-pay-to-win and "not that good"

Helldivers 2 has been praised for avoiding the tedious and intrusive microtransactions common among live-service shooters, so it's perhaps no coincidence that the game's creative director, Johan Pilestedt, reckons games "have to earn the right to monetize," which is why developer Arrowhead "really applied ourselves to not make it pay-to-win."

It would appear that the studio behind Helldivers 2, Arrowhead, didn’t quite anticipate the massive surge in popularity the game received following its February 8 release date.

Helldivers 2 updates target server and reward issues as Arrowhead apologise for rocky launch

Helldivers 2 is yet another example of a predominantly co-op game being a victim of its own success. Since its launch, the servers have buckled under the weight of keen conscripts ready to exterminate some bugs. There's been frequent disconnects, matchmaking issues, and post-game rewards not showing up for some folks. But Arrowhead CEO Johan Pilestedt has offered some comfort, saying that they've popped three hotfixes live to fix some of these issues.
