Helldivers 2 isn’t coming this year after all, as the September 2023 State Of Play broadcast revealed. But it’s not too long of a wait until the next entry of Arrowhead Game Studios’ friendly firing alien shooter arrives.
A new gameplay trailer showcased how chaotic the fights can be, though maybe it’s not the best way to present the madness. It has acted teammate banter people loathe at when watching trailers for multiplayer games.
But it is our best look yet in how the game, previously a top-down shooter, has transitioned into a 3rd-person shooter.
More importantly, the strategems still require those silly d-pad inputs and friendly fire is indeed on. It’s no Magicka, but the magic of the original Helldivers still lives on in the sequel.
Helldivers 2 will be ready to spread democracy on February 8, 2024 on PS5 and PC (Steam).
