What you need to know

  • Arrowhead Game Studios’ popular co-op shooter Helldivers 2 is going through a review bombing uproar on Steam right now due to publisher Sony reintroducing a requirement that will soon force PC players to link their Steam account to a PlayStation Network one in order to continue playing.
  • Though the requirement was technically in place at launch, it was quickly withdrawn to ease the strain on Helldivers 2’s servers. As a result, many players were not aware of its existence before they bought the game, and now feel blindsided that Sony is pushing it live again.
  • Ultimately, the big problem here is that only 69 countries in the world actually support PSN, so anyone who doesn’t live in one of these regions may be locked out of playing Helldivers 2 once Sony’s new policy goes into effect. Arrowhead is working with Sony to  figure out a solution for these players.
  • Arrowhead CEO Johan Pilestedt has apologized “for how this all transpired,” and says he hopes “we will make it up and regain the trust by providing a continued great game experience.” Notably, though, the studio says the decision to bring the PSN requirement back was entirely Sony’s.
