Helldivers 2 PS5 PlayStation

In another potentially catastrophic turn in the ongoing Helldivers 2 Galactic War effort, players have failed to scrap 2 billion Automatons mandated by the latest Major Order, and the MD-17 Anti-Tank Mines stratagem has been snatched from their grasp once again. Worse, Super Earth High Command (developer Arrowhead) has proclaimed the beginning of "The Second Galactic War", warning that "all conflict leading up to this was merely an elaborate special operation".

Word came down through priority channels (Helldivers 2's raucous Discord server), announcing the escalation of arms and lamenting that players only managed to destroy 78% of the bots needed (thanks, IGN). How the constant warfare since the game's launch could get hotter remains to be seen. Still, High Command has announced a massive expansion to SEAF's (Super Earth Armed Forces) ranks, fuelling speculation that squads of faceless NPC soldiers may potentially be deployed alongside the elite Helldivers for the first time.

High Command says that "new recruits are being trained to bolster the ranks of SEAF" and that Helldivers must protect these mustering sites. Their highest priority, as of this moment, is "guarding these training facilities so that each recruit can be given their rigorous 72-hour basic training".

Are you ready for an escalation of the ongoing Galactic War? Does this mean opening new fronts, or will our old enemies recruit some new forces themselves? Let us know in the comments section below.
