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 updates could bring back the first game's sneaky teleporting Illuminate faction

Nose around Helldivers 2's Galactic War map and you might notice that there's a lot of empty space. Around half the celestial sphere is given over to the dominions of the Automatons and Terminids, leaving ample room for another enemy faction to be inserted via free update or paid DLC. What could that next faction be? Surely it can't be any worse than a horde of giant bugs or a legion of robots. Surely it can't be, say, a highly advanced elder species of teleporting illusionists equipped with lightning guns and cloaking devices. Oh dear.

Helldivers 2 Steam Player Count Surpasses GTA 5, Starfield; Devs Cap Concurrent Players to Stabilise Servers

Helldivers 2, the latest co-op shooter from Arrowhead Game Studios, is a smash hit. The game, which released February 8 on PS5 and PC, has surpassed popular titles like Grand Theft Auto 5, Destiny 2, Starfield and The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim in all-time peak concurrent players on Steam. Owing to its ballooning player count, however, the third-person shooter has faced persistent server issues, with developers working to issue fixes. Now, Arrowhead Games Studios has reportedly capped its concurrent players to around 450,000 to improve server stability.

Arrowhead Game Studios’ Helldivers 2 has achieved another incredible milestone. It peaked at 409,367 concurrent players on Steam, beating out the likes of Rockstar Games’ Grand Theft Auto 5 (whichreached 364,548 concurrent players on the platform about nine years ago). This is after it recently surpassed player counts for Starfield and Destiny 2, with the developer having to raise the concurrent player cap due to overcrowded servers.

Developer Arrowhead Game Studios couldn’t have expected that Helldivers 2 would instantly explode in popularity the way it has, which means the co-op shooter is being played far more widely and consistently than the developer had prepared for. Since the game’s launch, that has resulted in quite a few in-game issues for players on both PS5 and PC, with the overcrowding of the servers causing everything from progression-related bugs to connectivity issues and more.

The level of success that Helldivers 2 is enjoying has been as surprising for us to see as it has been for the people who made it, and given how popular the shooter has proven, it’s no surprise that developer Arrowhead Game Studios is pivoting to much more ambitious post-launch plans. An entirely new roadmap is in the works, with free new content like enemies, biomes, objectives, and story updates having been previously promised.

By now, it’s no secret that Helldivers 2 is a success for Arrowhead Game Studios and Sony after just a week of launching on PC and PS5. It’s sold nearly a million copies and reached over 200,000 peak concurrent players on Steam. Such is the game’s success that even titles like Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 can’t compare in terms of players (on Steam, at least).

Arrowhead has, of course, promised fixes for those issues, and the first of those have now been applied with a new patch.

Helldivers 2 patch fixes crashes, disconnects and matchmaking bugs as devs aim to "beef up our content plans"

Helldivers 2 might be a co-op shooter mixed with comedy genius, but its launch has been blighted by bugs and crashes. Over the past week the devs have deployed server hotfixes and matchmaking tweaks, although one server and rewards patch had to be rolled back to fix "significant" performance issues. Still, they're doing their utmost as the game becomes PlayStation's biggest PC release to date. And the latest patch brings with it a slew of crash fixes, reductions to disconnects, further tweaks to matchmaking, and preps things for future server improvements.

Over the weekend, we reported that the co-op shooter had surpassed a concurrent user peak of 155,000 on Steam, and that number has only grown since then.

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.
