Arrowhead published a new Helldivers 2 patch for PC, which tackles some platform-specific technical issues such as players getting a black screen when starting up the game as well as several crash sources. Improvements in the communication between the game client and the backend should lead to better performance.

A balance change is included as well with the Extract Civilian mission type’s difficulty being tuned – the previous update already worked on rebalancing Defend and Eradicate.

A new Helldivers 2 update has been launched on Steam.
