We did it, HELLDIVERS Wins Best Handheld at DICE Awards 2016!

This week Johan Pilestedt, Arrowhead’s CEO and Helldivers Game Director, flew to Las Vegas for the 2016 annual DICE Award ceremony.

We knew that Helldivers had been nominated for two categories (Best Action and Best Handheld), but we also knew that we faced stiff competition this year in each of those categories.

The last thing we told Johan as he was leaving the office was “Vinn nu för fan eller kom inte tillbaka!” (“Win this dammit or don’t come back!”). It seemed to do the trick.

You can watch the full DICE Awards footage in this video, but if you just want to watch us winning click to start from the Helldivers winning nomination.

As an added bonus we have managed to squeeze a couple of spectacularly dark and blurry “behind-the-scenes” photos, curtsey of our very celebratory and happy Johan and Sony friends!

We also want to take the time to again thank everyone who has supported Helldivers since launch. It couldn’t have got to where it is now without your help. Truly, thank you.

HELLyeah!
