Fix for Helldivers’ Matchmaking Will Take Time, Dev Advises Temporary Workaround

By   /   Mar 11, 2015

Arrowhead Game Studios is aware of the recent matchmaking issue that’s plaguing Helldivers, and has provided a temporary means of way to bypass that.

According to reports, players are unable to find friend’s games on their playlists, making them unable to play with each other. Since the top-down shooter is primarily a co-op game, this only adds to the frustration.

In a post today, the developer had the following to say on the issue:

“[This] is more common when trying to find friends on other platforms than your own, such as between PS4 and PS3. It comes from the fact that we are pioneering cross-play functionality and it is very much a learning experience.”

Arrowhead is at the moment working on a fix but has mentioned that it will take time. For now players can set their matchmaking filters to “closely match what your friend is currently playing.” This will increase the chances of them showing up. Either that or you and your friend and try to find the same public game and join it together.

Helldivers was released on March 3 and has a bigger issue to resolve right now than the above mentioned matchmaking one. A hotfix is incoming for a bug which erases player progression when the controller is turned off.
