Over the weekend, brave Helldivers achieved what maybe as soon as appeared inconceivable: removing all bots in Helldivers 2. Integrated with the news that all those Terminind bugs are now “consisted of”, to utilize designer Arrowhead’s words, the sensation amongst gamers is among event.? We beat Helldivers 2?

In a post on social media platform X, the Helldivers 2 group declared the “galaxy is totally free when more”, which undoubtedly implies we can all breathe a sweet sigh of relief. I make sure Game Master Joel has absolutely nothing left up his sleeve. Quickly, we will be met a cutscene revealing Super Earth now flourishing thanks to our tough efforts, and Helldivers 2’s servers will be closed down.
