How Helldivers 2’s Battlepass System Battles FOMO

Many people are eagerly anticipating Helldivers 2’s launch for a variety of compelling reasons. One of those reasons has to do with the Warbond system. So, today, we’re going to explain how Helldivers 2’s Warbond-battlepass system battles the fear of missing out.

One of the biggest issues with most live-service games these days is their FOMO nature. Publishers have been using the fear of missing out to keep players coming back week after week so as not to miss out on content or battlepass unlocks. Case in point, Destiny 2 does this with their mid-seasonal mini battle passes and stiff quest requirements that demanded constant weekly play. Like Destiny 2, Helldivers 2 will have its own battlepass system dubbed Warbonds.
