Helldivers 2 has officially launched, with the game arriving simultaneously on PS5 and PC. On the PC side, the launch has gone down particularly well, with the game achieving PlayStation's highest PC launch numbers ever.
Helldivers 2 has peaked at 81,840 players, and currently has over 68,000 players actively in game on Steam. We don't have PS5 player numbers yet but on the PC side, the game has outpaced God of War, which peaked at over 73,500 players at launch in early 2022.
While the game is selling well on PC right now, the game does have a mixed overall rating on Steam, but most of the complaints seem to boil down to crashes and the game's kernel-level anti-cheat solution. The overall feedback on gameplay seems to be largely positive.
Hopefully these technical issues can be ironed out with some patches. Unfortunately with the weekend coming up, players may have to wait until next week to get fixes.
