Helldivers 2 has been receiving mixed reviews on Steam, despite sales getting off to a strong start. Although exact sales figures aren't yet available, the game has managed to overtake Palworld on the Steam sales charts. However, it seems that the launch of the highly anticipated sequel hasn't been without its fair share of issues.

Players have reported crashes and matchmaking bugs, leading to a "mixed" user review rating on Steam. This has resulted in a significant number of negative reviews pouring in for Helldivers 2. However, there may be a perfectly good reason behind these issues.

Arrowhead, the developer of Helldivers 2, has acknowledged the problems and is actively working on fixing them. A hotfix is expected to address the crashes and matchmaking bugs, improving the overall gameplay experience. The developer's CEO has offered an update on the progress being made in delivering a smoother gaming experience for the players.

The original Helldivers game was a hidden gem in the world of twin-stick shooters. However, its 3D sequel has garnered much more attention and anticipation. With its launch on Steam alongside the PlayStation 5 version, Helldivers 2 has become the surprise hottest game of the month.

Despite the technical issues and mixed reviews, the strong sales of Helldivers 2 indicate that there is still a dedicated fanbase eagerly awaiting the game's release. Over 50,000 concurrent players were already playing the game on its launch day, showcasing the high level of anticipation surrounding the sequel.

For those interested in Helldivers 2, it is important to note that the game is due to arrive this year. The release date is yet to be announced, but it is definitely a game to keep an eye on. With improvements promised by the developer, it is possible that the initial issues will be resolved, and the game will live up to its potential as an exciting sequel.
