FIGHT FOR SUPER EARTH
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.
The Helldivers must take on the role of galactic peacekeepers in this Galactic War and protect their home planet, spread the message of Democracy, and liberate the hostiles by force.
OVERPOWERED WEAPONS & OVERWHELMING FOES
They don’t send their Helldivers planet side without proper back up, but it’s up to you to decide how and when to call it in. Not only will you have a host of superpowered primary weapons and customizable loadouts, you also have the ability to call on stratagems during play.In the heat of the battle and your squad needs to take out a massive onslaught of Terminids in one go? You can have an Eagle drop a 500KG bomb, leaving behind only liberated bug corpses. Need to lay down a defensive perimeter? You can call for the Anti-Personnel Mine Deployer to layer the battlefield with deadly mines.
Players can decide how to take down each enemy surge using a multitude of offensive and defensive tools. As you complete missions, you’ll be able to upgrade your ship and build an even more impressive arsenal. Everything from shield generators to turrets to large-scale airstrikes can be used to give your team the upper-hand.
YOU’VE GOT BACK-UP
They say everything is better with friends. Especially when it comes to raining destruction down on the enemies of Liberty! True to their co-op roots at Arrowhead, they’ve made sure HELLDIVERS 2 has their best cooperative gameplay yet. Collaboration will be vital: teams will synergize on loadouts, strategize their approach for each mission, and complete objectives together. But for maximum challenge and collaboration, friendly fire is always on. Communicate with your squadmates and make sure those stray bullets and mines take down the real adversaries. Remember that you will return home celebrated as heroes, whether you’re dead or alive.
