Helldivers 2 players are forcing Steam to allegedly violate their own terms of service in industry breakthrough

Chaos continues to plague Hell divers 2 as Arrowhead Game Studios’ recent announcement about the game has led to a massive review bomb, with developers going a little too far against their community, and now Steam has reportedly started making its thoughts known on this delicate matter.

According to a select group of now former Helldivers, there is now the option to claim a refund for your copy of the game, regardless of how long you have owned the game. This is a rather disturbing turn of events, but for those who are unhappy, this is the best news they could ask for.

One of the biggest problems with the recent announcement for Hell divers 2 is the fact that Arrowhead is not happy with the decision to force players to link their Steam account to a PSN account, just as players aren’t happy about it, but that hasn’t stopped the community from retaliating on a massive scale.

The biggest retaliation now has come from the player base who have submitted refund requests to Steam in an attempt to reclaim their money spent on the game. This is especially apparent for those who live in countries where they cannot create a PSN account.

According to a recent tweet from the Hell divers 2 Media page on Twitter/X, players can request a refund via Steam due to these unfortunate new circumstances, but so far this is only a potential refund as there is no definitive way to prove that the refund shown in the tweet will was due to these circumstances.

If this rumor is true, even worse situations could be waiting for the game, as this situation is completely against the terms of service of the PC platform, leaving many gamers wondering if it is worth going through the refund process .

Steam is throwing its terms of service to the wind with its recent decision

One of the great things about Steam is that it has always had a consistent refund policy, which has always been available to gamers if and when they make a mistake with their purchases, but unfortunately with every refund policy there is always a catch.

The platform’s refund policy has always included the restriction that gamers can only request a refund with a high probability of success if they have only played the game for less than 2 hours and purchased it within the last 14 days.

Now this policy has seemingly gone out the window if recent reports are to be believed, but only in terms of… Hell divers 2which, if true, will also likely cause a lot of problems for the platform, and even the hardworking developers at Arrowhead, in the near future.
