Everything to Know about Helldivers 2
Helldivers 2 is a third-person squad-based shooter that sees players take on the role of a Helldiver. In your quest to fight for freedom and spread democracy amongst the stars, players will battle all manner of lifeforms in fast-paced, action-packed missions, all in the name of freedom, peace, and democracy, apparently.
Gameplay sees players equip a variety of weapons and equipment to tackle various missions, with the powerful stratagems being the biggest and baddest of them all. These game-changing moves can involve calling airstrikes, deploying armor and resources, and powerful tools like mechs to use and fight alongside you as you deliver peace to the galaxy in this epic shooter made all the better with friends.
What is the Release Date for Helldivers 2?
Helldivers 2 is set to release on February 8, 2024, and will be available on PC (via Steam) and PlayStation 5. The game’s servers will go live on the same day, but the time will vary in each region worldwide.
The game is being developed by Arrowhead Game Studios with PlayStation as the publisher, which likely means the game will be a PlayStation 5 console exclusive for a long time, if not forever. Those without a PlayStation console can enjoy the game with their friends regardless of platform, and the game will support crossplay, so you can choose the version you want without any issues.
