Helldivers 2 is on a tear and exhibiting no indicators of stopping anytime quickly. This week alone has been large for the massively in style co-op shooter, because the group collectively mourned the lack of a planet they’d fought laborious for. With the defeat behind them, Helldivers 2’s zealous participant base has its eyes on the battles to return, which can assist as a result of the continuously shifting struggle effort is about to get kicked up a notch after some teases from Arrowhead Sport Studio.

As noticed by GamesRadar, an Arrowhead developer took to the official Helldivers 2 Discord just lately to offer a solution about pilotable mechs. In brief, “Mechs [have] been good to go for some time,” in line with the developer.

Mechs, whose arrival many gamers have anticipated, have been curiously absent although one of many enemy factions is made up of killer robots—a few of which experience mechs! Some of us have already managed to get their fingers on mechs, regardless that they haven’t formally dropped but, and so they do in actual fact look fairly good to go. Sometimes, when gamers get their fingers on unreleased content material, it’s a bit tough across the edges, however the mech gameplay that’s leaked seems functionally full! Per the developer’s Discord message, there’s “extra sharpening” to be performed, nevertheless it looks as if mechs shall be coming to the sport sooner somewhat than later. I like a shiny new toy.

That isn’t all although. As reported by The Loadout, teases inside Helldivers 2’s galactic map have recommended {that a} faction from the primary sport will return. No Arrowhead builders have confirmed this information, however in-game broadcasts have name-dropped the faction, often called the Illuminate. After studying this week {that a} lone developer on the studio is pulling the strings on the ever-shifting story of Helldivers 2 (not not like a Dungeons and Dragons marketing campaign) and that the studio has additional narrative “surprises” deliberate, I wouldn’t be shocked to see the Illuminate pop up much like how the robotic automatons first emerged weeks in the past.

Helldivers 2 is quickly rising, not simply within the mainstream and social media, however as its personal enthralling world locked in a continuously escalating struggle. Simply preserving monitor of the methods the sport is evolving is compelling sufficient to make me need to drop all the things and expertise it for myself. I missed the robotic automatons’ shock assault, for instance, however I totally intend to be locked in if we get to take the combat to the Illuminate on our fancy new mechs. For Tremendous Earth!
