Helldivers 2 Is Keeping Things ‘Exciting’ By Appointing A D&D-Style Game Master

Arrowhead Games has revealed that it appointed a Dungeons & Dragons-style game master named Joel to keep Helldivers 2 “exciting” for foreseeable future.

Speaking on the game’s Discord, Katherine Baskin, Arrowhead Games’ community boss revealed the full skinny for the developer’s plans for the game master.

It’s really intended to keep the game exciting and keep the never-ending war engaging for players. HD2 is going to run for a long time, we’d love to see it go for many years, and that means we need something more than just a calendar with automated events tied to major holidays. That’s what I see in other live service games.

Most live service games have something like a game master, but it’s a series of automated events. Buffs/debuffs/events are activated automatically according to some schedule… instead of what we’re doing here, which is a person who can analyze the campaign as it’s happening and make more sensitive choices. We knew it would be divisive! But we hope overall that people enjoy it.
