Do you like Starship Troopers franchise? If the answer is yes, you may want to test Helldivers 2. It is a new TPP game, which seems to be inspired by this series. Players have to protect humanity by killing giant bugs. What is more, they are encouraged to do so by cheesy propaganda movies and slogans. Thousands of players are enjoying the title right now, but some can’t because of crashes. Even if you can play, it seems that Quickplay is also not functioning. Let’s talk about it.


Below you will find the latest official statement from Arrowhead CEO published by developers on the official Discord channel:

Hey everybody!

It's been a bit of crisis mode in the studio today therefore I have not been as active as I would have liked. We are seeing the matchmaking issues as well as some of the unfortunate stuck och login screen / crashes.

I just wanted to let you all know we're working as hard as we can on resolving these, the volume of players exposed some shenanigans in the system that went past many, many, many hours or testing.

We have tried resolving it on the backend only but it seems like we will have to patch the game to resolve the issue. Sorry for this and thank you for your patience.

For now I recommend to team up with people from the community as joining friends work fine.

I hope you are enjoying the experience once you get into the game.
