  • Helldivers 2, which is a popular cooperative shooter game, surprisingly faced controversy due to their mandatory PlayStation Network account link for PC players.

    Let’s understand everything that happened in this Johan Pilestedt On Helldivers 2 PSN Link.

    A Requirement Sparks Outrage Among Gamers

    Arrowhead Studios, who are the developers of Helldivers 2, first planned for PC players to link their game with their Steam Account to a PlayStation Network account.




  • However, fans were unhappy about this, and the gaming community instantly backfired with complaints about privacy and unnecessary steps to play the game.

    Also, one of the main reasons was the exclusion of users in regions that don’t have PlayStation Network access, which obviously does not give a good look at the game. A similar case happened to Escape from Tarkov developer Nikita Buyanov, who had to apologize, too.

    This would mean many players could not play the game just because of their mandatory PlayStation Network.

    Well, I guess it’s warranted. Sorry, everyone, for how this all transpired.”




  • “I hope we will make it up and regain the trust by providing a continued great game experience.” – Johan Pilestedt On Helldivers 2 PSN Link.
