Helldivers 2 Patch 1.000.12 Raises Server Cap

Helldivers 2 Patch 1.000.12 Raises Server Cap to increase maximum player load.

The new server cap will take the max load up to 700,000 players. The previous cap was around 450,000, so it should mean more players are able to dispense justice and democracy. The patch also fixes an issue affecting some players getting stuck in cinematics. Helldivers 2 Patch 1.000.11 was only released yesterday, with the main highlight being to kick out AFK players.

Helldivers 2 has seen an incredible rise on Steam, averaging over 400,000 players daily since it released. The game hit an all-time Steam peak of 457,649 just 2 days ago.
