Come on you apes, you wanna live forever? HELLDIVERS 2 is now available for Windows on Steam and on PlayStation 5, giving you the chance to defend humanity in this third-person science fiction shooter sequel and its Starship Troopers influence. Here's the previously released The Story So Far Trailer. The launch may be too popular, as PC Gamer notes reports of matchmaking issues and crashes have developer Arrowhead Studios in "crisis mode," with one hotfix already in place which should "improve matchmaking and the most frequent crashes." As for the game itself, would you like to know more?
HELLDIVERS™ 2 is a 3rd person squad-based shooter that sees the elite forces of the Helldivers battling to win an intergalactic struggle to rid the galaxy of the rising alien threats. From a 3rd person perspective, players use a variety of weapons (pistols, machine guns, flamethrowers) and stratagems (turrets, airstrikes, etc.) to shoot and kill the alien threats. Players can also aim down the sights for a more accurate 1st person camera view. Combat is accompanied by frequent sprays of blood and dismemberment as players exterminate the alien forces or players and squad mates are hit by environmental explosions or friendly fire. Enemy encampments and battlefield environments depict bloodstains and dismembered corpses.
