Helldivers 2: How does the galaxy release percentage work?

In Helldivers 2 there is no campaign mode as such, but the main objective of every player is to participate in the immense galactic war that takes place against the factions of terminids and automatons for the liberation of Super-Earth. In this way, all players collaborate in the general progress of this war, but... how do we really influence it?

In this entry of our guide we are going to explain to you what we know about the liberation percentage of the galaxy and its planets and how this particular system works in Arrowhead online multiplayer.

What is the release rate and how does it work?

As Helldivers 2 is a game focused on collaboration between its community of players, this title presents us with a huge galactic map divided by sectors in which a war for the liberation of Super Earth is taking place in real time.

Through the war table on each player's ship, we can all check the current status of the war progress.

  • From what we know, the progress of the war changes and mutates according to the actions of the community.
  • That is, players directly influence the liberation of planets from enemy invasions.
  • Each planet and sector has a liberation percentage that can range from 0% to 100%.
  • When all planets in a sector are 100% liberated, new nearby sectors are unlocked to continue expelling enemies from them.
  • The more planets and sectors are liberated, the more the enemy invasion recedes.
  • On the other hand, if the community fails to stop the advance of the enemies, the invasion gets closer and closer to Super-Earth.

Remember that the sectors of the galaxy are shown to us in two different colors: those in yellow are focused on planets and missions in which we must face finished bugs, while in those in red there are automaton robots.
