It's been an interesting last few days for both the people who are playing Helldivers 2, and the sci-fi third-person shooter's developer Arrowhead. Despite placing a cap on the number of the game's concurrent online players over the weekend, there are still a number of players who are experiencing problems signing onto the game's servers, along with continuing matchmaking problems and more.

Today, the Helldivers 2 Discord channel revealed the latest patch for the game for both PC and PS5 players. Here is the changelog

  • Fixed crash when replicating ragdoll momentum.
  • Fixed crash when replicating destructions.
  • Fixed crash when displaying the mission end rewards.
  • Resolved a 100% block issue for quickplay matchmaking on PC Tuned extract civilian mission difficulty.
  • Improved the way that we handle platform authentication to avoid things like the black screen issue at startup
  • Improvements to our client > backend communication for better backend performance.
  • Implemented an automatic retry mechanism to quickplay.
  • Added proper login error message for error "10002038.”

There are also a number of known issues, either caused by this patch or by earlier updates.

  • Login rate limiting when many are logging in at the same time.
  • Players can become disconnected during play.
  • Rewards and other progress may be delayed or not attributed.
  • Various UI issues may appear when the game interacts with servers.
  • Pick-up of certain objects in-game may cause characters to freeze in place for an extended period of time.
  • Other unknown behaviors may occur.
  • Japanese VO is missing from intro cutscene and Ship TV.
  • Armor values for light/medium/heavy armor do not currently function as intended.
  • PS5 players may still be unable to use quickplay.

Arrowhead stated it will continue to update Helldivers 2 and that the team will make an effort to release "continuous improvements over the days and weeks to come."

The SteamDB.com site stated that yesterday, Helldivers 2 hit another concurrent player record on Steam with 411,359 players.
