After final week’s race to gasoline Terminid planets with tremendous pesticide, I believed for positive Arrowhead would give the Helldivers 2 neighborhood a break. Then yesterday, a brand new main order got here in: liberate a complete of 5 planets in simply three days—a frightening problem, however not one that will be out of attain for the Tremendous Earth combating drive that has exceeded Arrowhead’s expectations at each flip.

As anticipated, the helldivers confirmed up. The foremost order solely requires the liberation of two planets, Fori Prime and Zagon Prime, however to get to them, gamers must liberate at the least three different planets first. Probably the most organized gamers have taken on the roles of generals drawing up elaborate battle plans and rallying forces to focus their efforts and ignore pointless planets. It was working: In simply over 24 hours, Estanu was liberated, opening a path to Fori Prime. With two days left to test off Fori and make a break for Zagon, success appeared fully doable.

However earlier at the moment, the struggle effort hit a serious snag—a catastrophic failure of galactic struggle monitoring inside Helldivers 2. Missions may be accomplished, however right away they are not counting for something. All liberation has ceased, and with little time remaining, the Terminids are gaining again floor with no resistance.

The excellent news is Arrowhead game grasp Joel is conscious of the issue, and issued an official communique to all helldivers assuring monitoring will probably be restored as quickly as doable. “We’re conscious of a difficulty with the Galactic Battle not monitoring your efficient unfold of Liberty correctly,” Joel wrote. “We’re investigating this urgently and can hold you posted as quickly as we perceive the problem and have a repair to speak to you.”

Hopefully, that repair will include some kind of extension or liberation buff to assist make up for misplaced time. Divers have actually put their backs into coordinating forces this time round and it might be a disgrace to see that sweat wasted.

Whereas I am snug assuming this is not an intentional goosing of numbers by Joel, you do must surprise if this stakes-raising roadblock is not too handy. It would not be the one conspiracy levied in opposition to Arrowhead as of late. Gamers are nonetheless recognizing flying bugs that do not formally exist, and extra lately, blue lasers that might sign the arrival of a 3rd faction.

Stepping exterior the Helldivers fiction, Arrowhead can be monitoring a rise in crash experiences after at the moment’s patch aimed toward fixing pal requests, mech bugs, and meteor showers.

“Our crew is deep down within the trenches digging into the problem as we communicate,” wrote neighborhood rep Twinbeard on the HD2 Discord server. “We’re on alert able to update on any modifications right here.”

The newest Helldivers 2 main order is ready to finish on Friday, March 22. What comes subsequent? The very fringe of Terminid territory, it will appear.
