What are those things? Well, a lot of the usual kinds of fixes, plus a passive swap that stops one of the latest warbond's armours from accidentally being a magnet for buyer's confusion, if not buyer's remorse. If you're out of the loop, the Democratic Detonation Warbond arrived in-game last week, bringing with it a bunch of useful tools to help you continue to battle the returned automatons, even if you can't afford the latest ship module upgrades. Sadly, up until this latest patch arrived, if you bought one of the armour sets on offer, you weren't quite getting what you paid for. As detailed in the notes for patch 01.000.203, the main thing it does is resolve a bit of a mixup regarding the CE-27 Ground Breaker armour. You see, it'd accidentally shipped with a 'servo-assisted' passive, instead of the 'engineering kit' one it was advertised as featuring.

Свежие чарты PlayStation Store, опубликованные Sony, показывают, что кооперативный шутер от Arrowhead Game Studios по итогам марта вновь стал самым продаваемым проектом на PlayStation 5 в Европе и Северной Америке . Arrowhead knows how "ridiculous" Helldivers 2's fire damage is, working on a fixApr 15, 2024 - VG247Helldivers 2 players are getting frustrated by the game's overly zealous fire damage, but developer Arrowhead has promised a fix is in the works. Earlier this month, as part of Helldivers 2's update that added in blizzards and sandstorms, the damage that fire caused also received a tweak. However, this particular tweak hasn't been well-received, as it's essentially causing players to die from fire damage in just seconds, which unsurprisingly annoyed a lot of players. Thankfully, it seems like a change is on the way, as in the game's official Discord, community manager Thomas 'Twinbeard' Petersson has assured players that the team is working on making fire not so overwhelming (thanks, PCGamesN). "We're going through 'fire as a whole' at the moment," wrote Petersson in response to one Discord user. "The works - DPS, DOT, the host thingie, not dying in two seconds from just touching it etc. Probably introducing fixes in parts, but we're on it like Donkey Kong on barrels!" In a separate message to another user, Petersson went on to acknowledge how the fire damage is "ridiculous" writing that it's "at least wrong and something we’re changing… It's an elaborate process, so we’re doing it in parts. More info to follow."

The Democratic Detonation Warbond is now live and available for purchase in the co-op space shooter, bringing all manner of high-explosive weaponry to help you blast your way through the bugs and bots. However, developer Arrowhead Game Studios notes that one of the body armors offered in the new Premium Warbond features the wrong passive perk, and warns players planning to buy it that it will be changing soon.

Current server status and error codes Helldivers 2 just got new ship modules and one will, er, let you pay a lot to teach your crew to pack boxesApr 11, 2024 - VG247Hola Helldivers 2 people. Arrowhead's just dropped some nice new ship module upgrades for you to contemplate purchasing and ultimately chicken out because you're too stingy. Seriously, these are aimed at hardened vets looking to take their craft to the next level, so you'll have to fork over a lot in order to...erm...make your crew expert box packers. If you're out of the loop, today's the day that the Democratic Detonation Warbond actually arrives in-game to help you continue to battle the automaton invasion force, provided you can avoid accidentally blowing yourself up with the new crossbow. Alongside that, these ship upgrades have arrived, and they're just like taking a trip to space IKEA (other furniture shops are available). As announced by community manager Baskinator on game's official Discord server, these modules are a part of the Super Destroyer Fleet Upgrade that's just been deployed, which lets you grab some level four revamps for the different sections of your ship. As you might expect given they're level four, they do slightly more than just add some of those throws and blankets that your mum likes to the sofas and cost a fair amount.

One of the best PC games of the year, Helldivers 2 has absolutely captivated my time, and continued balance updates and improvements have honed it into an even more fun experience as the primary conflict shifts from the Terminids to the Automatons.

Current server status and error codes Helldivers 2 Warbond details - Season 3 Premium Warbond Helldivers 2's reward system will be overhauled soon, but some players’ automaton battle plans really aren’t that medal worthyApr 10, 2024 - VG247As we all know, the main reason you go to war - in real life or in Helldivers 2 - isn't because you actually believe in the cause, it's because you're hoping to bag a nice medal and a pat on the head from some commander after watching your mates die. Thankfully, due to some recent issues with medals in Arrowhead's online shooter, it looks like the entire system that brings such rewards to you will be getting an overhaul soon. If you're out of the loop, when it's come to folks actually getting the medals they've earned by fighting valiantly in major orders and not just goofing around having snowball fights, there's sometimes been a bit of a delay in that actually happening. The game's developers, though, look to have a plan to sort it permanently. Taking to the game's official Discord server, community manager Twinbeard provided an update for those still yet to recieve some of their spoils from recent campaigns. "Medals for two of the latest three major orders have now been shipped," the write, adding that the last batches should drop some time today, April 10.

Read more Helldivers 2's intro just got a new behind the scenes look, and yes, there's a goofy close up of the guy screaming as his family gets murderedApr 10, 2024 - VG247Ok, so, you know that bit in Helldivers 2's now iconic intro cinematic where one minute, everything's fine, and the next some poor man's screaming because a Terminid is killing his family right in from of him? Well, thanks to a new behind-the-scenes video from the company that made the sequence, you can now enjoy a hilarious ultra close up of the mo-cap for that scene. Yes, it's a weekday and we're casually reccomending that you take time out of your day, minutes of your life that you'll never get back, to watch a man scream into a camera while dressed in the slightly silly clothing that a lot of modern games, films, and shows require. Look, it's a bit funny, ok? I promise. To see this bit of screaming, you'll need to check out a new behind-the-scenes video that Goodbye Kansas Studios, the Swedish VFX studio that worked on the game's intro alongside Arrowhead, has just put out. It's not too long, but offers some interesting glimpses at the motion capture and modelling that went into bringing the intro to life in a fashion that's not just people in funny suits running around with gun props.

Don’t worry, your precious Helldivers 2 platinum trophy is now achievable again after all - probablyApr 9, 2024 - VG247Hold on to your Space Earth military helmet, Helldivers 2's automatons have just returned, you know, literally a day or so after they were soundly defeated and believed to be eradicated by players. Sadly, that doesn't look to be the case, as the bots have just launched a fresh assault on a bunch of planets. If you're out of the hoop, here's a quick rundown of what's been happening in Helldivers lately: players fight automatons, automatons get defeated, arrowhead says automatons are gone forever, no one believes that - especially since it means game's PS5 platinum trophy would seemigly be unearnable going forwards, players fight bugs, players get close to defeating bugs, automatons return. Now, I'm gonna remember to take a breath. The return of the automatons was announced via the game's official Twitter account. "Somehow, the Automatons returned," Arrowhead wrote, not doubt via a social media manager laughing at their own Star Wars reference.

So if you've been waiting to dive back in until there's no fear of lost progress due to a crash, now's the time to give the galaxy a democracy-imbued shake down. Read the rest of the story... RELATED LINKS: Helldivers 2 Warbond details - Season 3 Premium Warbond With the Helldivers 2 automatons defeated, what happens next? Don't worry, a fix for the frustrating Helldivers 2 crashes is coming Wahey, Helldivers 2's latest patch fixes pesky mid-mission crashes - and snowball fights are allowed againApr 9, 2024 - VG247Helldivers 2 has just gotten another fresh patch, and I'm delighted to report that one of its fixes finally means crash-free snowball fights are back on the menu! Oh, and it should also rectify a bunch of other pesky freezes that've been frustratigly griding the action to a halt mid-operation for a lot of players. Yup, even though there's probably something bad about to happen now that the galaxy's free from the threat of the automatons - a victory that's temporarily made the game un-platinumable - everything's right with the world now. For the first time in just under two weeks, you should be able to lob a snowball at your mate without worrying that doing so might cause your game to crash. As recently teased via the game's Discord server, patch 01.000.202 for Helldivers 2 is mainly focused on stopping the game from crashing in a number of different situations. The instances that'd been causing the most ire in the community were those that had been happening either " during extraction and right after it", but you'll be glad to know that those and a host of other mid-mission crashes should hopefully now be a thing of the past.
