Helldivers 2 Developer Apologizes and Shares Update About Ongoing Login and Reward Issues

The developer of Helldivers 2 shared an apology and an update about the widespread issues with logins and rewards that are affecting players in the popular new game published by PlayStation.


Excellent game but with every update I have more and more issues on PC. I’ve lost so much XP due to crashes that it makes me not want to play.

That is the nprotect drm it uploads data even when the game is off and trips your antivirus

Just spend sometime outside the bubble look into this drm on the eastern game scene it was hated/pulled but sony brought it back.

It’s a fun game and I’m a little forgiving because of that. But yea it will be nice if they can fix it soon.

Scissorman15d ago

This is why EVERY GaaS game should have a beta.

OMGitzThatGuy15d ago

Need to speed up fixing crashing on AMD gpus, either crashing on startup causing radeon software to crash or crashing mid game

I’m hoping it doesn’t take too long for the issues to get fixed, it’s such a fun game.

Yes, Hell Divers II Has Microtransactions but It Isn’t Bad as You Think

Its a PAID game so yes, microtransactions are as bad as they think. They aren’t truly pay to win but they are still bad. Hell, anytime there is an article trying to convince you they aren’t bad, you know damn well they are lol.

GamerRN4h ago(Edited 4h ago)

I'm so confused, everytime PlayStation has micro transactions, it's never a big deal. But any other company, especially Big M, then the Ponies come out swinging.

Yet, here they are defending... Not in the case of this poster, but see below...

-Foxtrot4h ago

Tell me about it

MTs are MTs

Why are we suddenly defending this now

Yeah sure the game is good and is a success but it doesn’t hide the fact MTs are a cancer to the industry.

People need to stop cherry picking what to call out

IRetrouk4h ago

Must be that xbox tax.
Forza has had every dlc car turned into Mt's so far, the only one I think doesn't have the option yet is motorsport 8, yet nothing is ever mentioned about it, on the other hand, gt 7 got lots of heat for their 3 credit option, so it's really not as black and white as you make out.

shinoff21832h ago

Yep that's bullshit. Read my comment above. And I definitely root for Sony more the ms.

It's all made up in your head. Just like that dumb xbox tax some swear by

The article title literally defends them...

mysonred0m ago

I'm sure you are confused xbot but hey don't worry about it you're making a big deal out of it for everybody. No the article title doesn't defend them it suggest they're not as bad as you think and lets be honest becasue this is a Sony game you think they're terrible but there's not a peep out of you when xbox does it.

That's a bad take on microtransactions.

shinoff21832h ago

Agreed. Microtransactions are a stain on the industry and today's gaming.

CrimsonWing695h ago

LMAO ok ok ok I want us to somehow pin this and bookmark this, because this is hypocrisy at its finest! Helldivers 2 is a GaaS game and yet it’s ok and the microtransactions are ok because “it’s not as bad as you think.”

Well, let’s just hope that the rest of the GaaS games that will eventually phase out traditional games aren’t “as bad as you think.”

GamerRN4h ago

I absolutely agree with you... It's amazing how one sided it's gotten...

LikAChicken2h ago

I started looking at this site around 2007, and I distinctly remember how one-sided it was (heavily leaning toward Microsoft vs Sony). I JUST started paying attention to this site this year after stopping around 2011.

It's fascinating to see how the discourse on this site has largely remained the same but is in favor of Sony at this time. I don't get the need to put blinders on this hard.

GamerRN1h ago

I agree... I'm not in favor of either side, I just can't get over how childish it makes gamers look when they become fanboys.

Christopher1h ago

I'm tired of making my stance on this, which is very anti-MTX, because both sides tend to vote me into oblivion. People just don't understand how gameplay is being changed to increase the chances that people will invest in MTX. And a lot of people here are like "I played 50 hours this week and didn't have to spend anything" when most people aren't spending that much time to play and aren't getting the same out of their time. Casual market is their target for this stuff and it affects us all. I'm not happy spending twice as long to accomplish a task because they want casual gamers to feel like it's all they can do in game, if at all.

thorstein2m ago

It's anything though about a game that gets hate.

For example: the Order 1886. Length was suddenly a major sticking point and was bandied about how horrible the game must be.

So MTs, GaAs, DRM are all on Helldivers 2. It's a fun game. It launched terribly. It has bugs (and not the kind you kill) Somehow that's a 9/10.

Other GaAs, MTs, DRM, games that are fun with solid launches (with more players) get utter hate.

(Not that they shouldn't.)

I only play on PS and PC. I don't get this hypocrisy at all.
