Monday. You gotta have something nice to watch on Mondays. Therefore we offer you the last video in this developer feature series, and after this you should have a pretty good picture of what’s contained in the free update.
The third video is all about the new environment and some other goodies being added with HELLDIVERS: Turning up the Heat.
So re-enlist today because the countdown has started!
Tomorrow evening (CET) we’re also aiming to stream Turning Up The Heat. We’ll be back with time!
The latest campaign update (Patch 1.04) is just in: Super Earth Command have addressed a number of issues which you have run into during the war, and it also includes some fresh intel on our enemies of freedom and democracy.
We are honoured to have received such a warm and welcoming reaction from the HELLDIVERS community. In the last few weeks we have been flooded with messages of love and support for our game. There are not enough ways to thank you all, but we want to show you our amazing wall of compliments, which we hope to eventually completely fill.
There is one thing we can give back to you right away though, and that is a gift for your wall(paper)!
Feel free to spread some managed democracy on your computer. We will soon have more versions and sizes up on the webpage.
We’ve also received some questions about the newly released DLC. Here’s the way we look at things:
We believe in making games which will have a long lifetime and become a living product after release. Every great care is made to ensure that we integrate support models which make sense for our games. It is a long-lasting labour of love. Creating DLC allows for this continued development and support of the game; we want to support our products for as long as the community wants to play them.
With an overwhelmingly high demand for more Helldivers content, it makes sense to get something fresh out there for the large amount of players who have already spent 40+ hours on Helldivers and unlocked everything.
We want to thank the fans who have already contributed to Helldivers by buying the DLC packs, and supported us as it further gives us the ability to improve the title and react to user feedback. This is why we are happy to announce that we are turning up the heat soon with a big content update that will be free.
The artists are working into juicy new stuff for you
As a civilian you made the most important decision of your life by enlisting in the HELLDIVERS.
As a HELLDIVER you made Liberty… Democracy… and the protection of SUPER-EARTH your personal responsibility.
YOU HAVE MADE A DIFFERENCE. The positive response and recruitment rate since HELLDIVERS first launched into the galaxy on March 3 have been overwhelming. The latest statistics coming in from the Galactic Fleet bring us some heartening news:
4.2 BILLION Shots fired by the HELLDIVERS (Avg. Accuracy 38%) 500 MILLION Enemies of SUPER-EARTH neutralized (killed) 772 THOUSAND Planets liberated 53 THOUSAND Cape Spinning Trophies earned
Patch 1.03 is now live in the US and it should roll out globally soon!
It addresses several of the issues you have come across and reported.
Rest assured that we are continuing to work hard to fix any issues not yet updated with this patch, but they do require a little more time.
