Yuri Lowenthal Confirms That's Him In Helldivers 2
13.02.2024 - 15:43
You might've noticed that one of the four Helldiver voices sounds suspiciously like a certain webslinger who also calls the PS5 home. You'd be right - they're voiced by none other than Yuri Lowenthal, AKA Spider-Man.
"Received word I can confirm my involvement in Helldivers 2," Lowenthal tweeted. "And in case it wasn't clear, my performance was HEAVILY inspired by Starship Troopers."
Starship Troopers is a film based on a '50s novel about an interstellar war with an alien species of arachnids, set to the backdrop of the 23rd century. It stars Casper Van Dien, Denise Richards, Michael Ironside, and Neil Patrick Harris to name a few.
If you want to dole out some democracy with Spider-Man himself, you can equip Lowenthal's voice at the Armory - he's Voice Pack 2. The other options include Critical Role and Hi-Fi Rush star Robbie Daymond, Starfield and Call of Duty actor Julie Nathanson, and fellow Spider-Man alumni Erica Lindbeck, AKA Black Cat.
If you want to hear Yuri Lowenthal in action, you can watch a clip of a player using his voice pack below.
He comically screams about his arms and legs as the player is flung back, the screen thickening with blood as a warning pops up telling them that "Both of [their] legs are injured". Just in case Lowenthal's exaggerated terror didn't give it away.
If you haven't played Helldivers 2 and want to pick it up to see what all the fuss is about, you might want to wait. Given the huge influx of players, there are some major bugs and server issues, even impacting progression.
Here at TheGamer, we scored Helldivers 2 four stars , praising its deep combat and satirical tone.
A patch was rolled out last night for PC to try and mitigate the problem, but it was rolled back after it was found to have caused severe performance issues. However, hotfixes are being deployed to try and iron out the kinks.
