The second reveal of the PlayStation Showcase today was Helldivers 2 from Arrowhead Game Studios.
“Freedom. Peace. Managed Democracy. Your Super Earth-born rights. The key pillars of our civilization. These are under attack from deadly alien civilizations, conspiring to destroy the Super Earth and its values.
You’ll step into the boots of an elite class of soldiers whose mission is to spread peace, liberty, and Managed Democracy using the biggest, baddest, and most explosive tools in the galaxy. Team up with up to four friends and wreak havoc on the alien scourge that threatens the safety of your home, Super Earth,” says Katherine Baskin, Comms Manager at Arrowhead Game Studios.
It seems like Helldivers 2 is a direct sequel to Helldivers, and you’ll deal with some of the gnarliest bugs this side of the Super Earth. And given this game is like its predecessor, you’ll face the enemy with a buddy or two in co-op.
Helldivers 2 will release later this year for both PlayStation 5 and PC platforms.
