Would Changing Plans Be Better For Helldivers 2? Some Players Think so

Some Helldivers 2 players claim that not sticking to set plans, and changing then on the go, may prove better for the game in the long run. They claim that the focus should be on more immediate matters.

Helldivers 2 proved to be more successful than anyone had anticipated. And, to keep the millions of players engaged, the devs constantly add more and more content. This is most notable in the idea that a new Warbond is to be released every month. This would be great, but most of the time, this new content comes with its own set of errors and is not working as intended.

In one Reddit post, the user ParmesanCheese92 said that we could use a break from new content and that the devs should instead focus on fixing bugs and errors. “I’m playing casually and still haven’t even finished the free warbond. What’s the rush?“ He states that not having a new Warbond every month will not stop anyone from playing, but all the errors will.

A lot of players agree with him, like piciwens who said: “A lot of people will probably be upset yes. It’s not an easy decision, but there are major bugs and performance issues that need attention.” Other, predominantly casual players, all agree with the OP, saying that they can’t invest that much time into the game and can’t keep up with the new releases. Having a more stable, bug-free experience is more important, especially since the new content can be a little underwhelming sometimes.

Official Info on Helldivers 2 Poll Says Otherwise

Not everyone agrees with this idea. Lots of Helldivers say that this is not as simple as it sounds. Some deadlines have to be met, as one Redditor said: “They are likely contractually obligated to make 1 Warbond a month with Sony.” Others say that people will complain no matter what you do. Pulling a break on new content to fix the issues will make other players complain about not having new content.

On the official Helldivers 2 Discord server, a poll was made recently, asking players what should the team focus on. The first place is more objectives, biomes, and planets, with about 37% of votes. The slowing down and fixing of errors is in second place, with 28%. It seems that the majority would love new content, even if it comes with some bugs (technical, not Terminids, we have enough of those).

Fixing errors should be a priority, but releasing new content is what keeps the game fresh and players engaged. Yes, new stuff does usually come with errors of their own, but Arrowhead are aware of this. Moving forward, they will probably pay more attention to new content before official releases.
