Helldivers 2 is the brand-new must-play shooter in the area, and it ends up the engine it was improved is currently vanished. 

As identified by 80 Level, Arrowhead Game Studios made use of a fairly unidentified Swedish game engine, Autodesk Stingray, to make Helldivers 2. Previously referred to as Bitsquid, this likewise powered the very first Helldivers and was formally terminated in 2018.

Responding to 80 Level’s post on Twitter, innovative supervisor and Arrowhead CHIEF EXECUTIVE OFFICER Johan Pilestedt verified that the group did, actually, develop its newest game making use of an engine that efficiently no more exists, and discussed the troubles that developed because of this. “This is true,” he states. “Our crazy engineers had to do everything, with no support to build the game to parity with other engines.”

He includes that the group had actually currently started to produce Helldivers 2 making use of Autodesk Stingray prior to it disappeared. “And yes. The project started before it was discontinued,” he creates.

As well as Helldivers, Autodesk Stingray was made use of to bring different Warhammer games to life, consisting of Warhammer: End Times – Vermintide, its 2018 follow up Vermintide 2, and Warhammer 40k: Darktide.

Now in the hands of gamers, Helldivers 2 has actually confirmed to be so prominent it’s taken care of to go beyond the computer simultaneous gamer varieties of heavyweights like Destiny 2 and GTA 5. Arrowhead has actually confessed’s “struggling to keep up” with the game’s enormous gamer matter and has actually consistently been elevating the gamer cap to assist with web server security.

In our Helldivers 2 testimonial, we discovered the game to be a “fiercely challenging and visually breathtaking cooperative shooter where failure is funny and success feels magnificent,” though “there’s a sense the game’s full potential is yet to be realized.”

Helldivers 2 isn’t simply excellent co-op, it’s a masterclass in making funny games.
