Wonderful! The strafing run seems a bit OP but I’m sure you’ve thought about it. I can’t see that Helldivers is free on Steam, is it going to be in a few hours perhaps?
I’m not sure what exact time that goes active, hopefully soon! It’ll be controlled by Steam’s sale schedule.
It’s usually when steam updates its daily offers. Try again in 5 hours from now.
Wingfrog #6 didn’t find it OP :)
Can’t wait to try these new stratagems! Just a little question: would it be possible to see a change to the fog/haze colors of the alien home planets and have them like the normal ones? The illuminate one in particular is really hurting the eye with that purple/blue, especially for people who can have problems with the eyes :(
YESS, Arrowhead i love u. :)
Thank u very much. Long Live Helldivers!
Arrowhead did Liberty Day proud again. Thank you :)
PS – RIP Wingfrog #6
I’m afraid the untimely passing of Wingfrog #6 might have been my fault…
We have all been Wingfrog #6.
So sad that it seems Arrowhead can’t make Hell Divers 2 without Sony’s approval :(
Ya in the AMA yesterday they said Sony owned the IP.
Great stuff! Thank you!!!
Happy Liberty Day, everyone!
Arrowhead delivered! :)
I haven’t tried any of them yet, but that Heavy Strafing Run looks beautiful. <3
Thanks, guys. Happy Liberty Day!
I’m sooo happy right now!
Once again, Arrowhead has made Liberty Day the very best day on Super-Earth! And not only because Liberty Day is the only official holiday of Super-Earth, because even if there were other holidays besides Liberty Day, they would only pale in comparison! :-D
We love this game. We meet regularly to free the world from greasy bugs. Thanks for this great game, which gives us a lot of fun.
Prost from Germany!
Wow! Look at that :) We even have some similar glasses here made for the release celebration. Hope you had a successful Liberty Day, thanks for playing! Skål!
Thanks to all of you for playing and dropping by here!
Hope you had a great Liberty Day
Happy libertyday guys!
