Helldivers 2 latest news: scandal, negative reviews, PSN accounts canceled

I would like to note that on May 2, an update was released, where they said that they will add a new pass on May 9.

B HELLDIVERS 2 will bring a new battle pass “Polar Patriots”

The defenders of democracy will have access to:

  • 3 primary weapons;
  • 3 new armor sets;
  • 3 units of additional equipment (1 pistol, 2 grenades);
  • Cosmetic items (emotes, capes and banners).

The release date of the pass is May 9, 2024.

The price of enjoyment is 1,000 credits.

It would seem that the game is developing and everything is going cool, especially since the game has been in the tops for a long time.

However, on May 3, the post is updated and add new news:

Democracy needs a PlayStation Network account

Helldivers 2 players on PC will be required to link a Steam account to PSN by June 4.

New recruits will face the requirement as early as May 6, while old users will face the requirement from the 30th of this month.

According to the company, the PlayStation Network account will help protect players from data loss and reduce the number of inadequate personalities.

This is what has become the sent point for many, the requirement to link a PSN account has caused a riot in the ranks of Hellraiser – with gamers drowning Helldivers 2 in negative reviews

Although the warning about the need for a PSN account was put on the project page from the very beginning, most of the players ignored it. Now it’s backfired on them.

Disgruntled players are threatening to abandon Helldivers 2 or request a refund, even though many of them have already played hundreds of hours.

In addition, creating a PSN account is simply impossible in some regions.

After that, Helldivers 2 started a wave of bans of players who tried to enter the game after linking Steam to PSN from countries where PSN is not available.

The reason for the bans is “violation of the user agreement”. VPN does not help.

Reaction of players to rule changes and mandatory PSN accounts

All Helldivers 2 reviews have become “mixed” and recent ones are “mostly negative”

  • Arrowhead promises to remedy the situation by creating a “great gaming experience”;
  • The studio’s community manager, on the other hand, says PSN is needed to ban players more effectively;
  • Another community manager responded to complaints with “I thought you were refranchising the game and leaving”.

Negative reviews meanwhile are already over 60k.

“The new patch for Helldivers 2 will remove Russians, Chinese and many others from the game”: players continue to express outrage at the situation with Helldivers 2

Some gamers believe that Sony can be sued as part of consumer protection in the EU, where PSN is also unavailable.

You can only legally have a PSN account in 69 countries. Sony developers thought that the negative reviews are related to this, but no.

The response from the developers

“Studio discussions continue”: Helldivers 2’s community manager gets in touch again

  • Unless there is a better solution, Arrow Head Studios will not make PSN tethering mandatory;
  • Razrabs have a negative attitude towards this situation;
  • The more players complain, leave negative reviews and demand refunds, the more opportunity the studio has to defend Sony’s optional PSN tethering;
  • The community manager also apologizes for calling for “just getting a PSN”, she didn’t know that there are so few countries where you can legally make a PSN account;
  • “We’re on the side of the players”.

Helldivers 2 breaks records again

Helldivers 2 is breaking records, but there’s a nuance…. The game has received 115,000 negative reviews in two days – a new Steam record.

Steam started refunding players for Helldivers 2 – the number of played hours apparently doesn’t matter.

So dude played 225 hours and got his money back. Sony, meanwhile, still hasn’t offered anything.

UPD. Helldivers 2 has been taken off sale on Steam in more than 170 countries – among them CIS countries as well

Arrowhead Game Studios and Sony have not yet commented on the situation. In all these countries you can not register a PSN account.

Meanwhile, Sony players have started a boycott and downgrade the game already in the Sony catalog.

UPD. Helldivers 2’s records continue: the game has reached over 300 thousand negative reviews – no other paid game has that many on Steam.

Victory of Democracy May 6, 2024

Sony canceled the update for Helldivers 2 – PSN-account for the game is no longer required.

The console thanked players for their support and said it would keep the community informed of its future plans.

The Helldivers 2 community has launched Operation Sweep

The defenders of democracy are urged to change negative reviews in Steam to positive ones in order to return the game’s deserved rating.

By the efforts of fans, the project has already restored more than 50% of positive reviews, but it’s still far from the previous 80+.

Run to change the review in honor of the Day of Victory over Sony.

No rush to change reviews – Helldivers 2 is still unavailable in over 170 countries worldwide

While Sony has made a PSN account optional for the game, there’s still a bigger hurdle to overcome: helping to bring democracy to the entire cosmos is still not available from 170 countries. You simply can’t buy the game in them.
