It is an online cooperative multiplayer in which players can use large-scale destructive powers, explore unique planets, upgrade their equipment, and complete objectives together. Players can also collect natural resources of alien origin and use them to enhance and unlock new stratagems aboard their ships.
Helldivers 2 is a sequel to the original Helldivers from 2015, heavily emphasizing co-op gameplay. It was officially announced at a previous PlayStation Showcase event, confirming that the game will shift to a third-person perspective. Despite this change, it appears that the core of the Helldivers experience will remain intact, including the ability to kill teammates during missions accidentally.
With the pre-order live, the game offers a lot of new cosmetics and content. The extra items in the Super Citizen Edition include a special DP-53 Savior of the Free armor set and–because heroes wear capes–the Will of the People cape to make you stand out among the liberated. Players also gain access to the MP-98 Knight submachine gun, a powerful primary weapon that tears through bots, bugs, and Helldivers, thanks to friendly fire!
In addition to these items, Players will have the Super Citizen status for their Helldiver, an add-on minigame, Stratagem Hero, for their ship, and access to Premium Warbond content for Steeled Veterans.
