When is the Helldivers 2 release date? Yes, after a leak from Nvidia, and rumors for years, Helldivers 2 has finally been announced and is coming exclusively to PS5. But what exactly is Helldivers and what can you expect from this new shooter, which should fill a gap in Sony s lineup now that Killzone has been retired?
Helldivers was a 2015 game from Arrowhead Game Studios, originally released on the PS3, PS4, and the PS Vita (yes the PS Vita). But the scale and size have been upped for the sequel and instead of a top-down game, Helldivers 2 is a fully-fledged shooter that will almost certainly end up on our top shooting games list, alongside ourbest PS5 FPS gameslist.
Helldivers 2 release date window
The Helldivers 2 release date is set for 2023 on PS5 and PC. The date was announced at the PlayStation Showcase alongside the reveal trailer and it will be one of the first PlayStation Studios games to launch simultaneously on PC and PS5.
Helldivers 2 developer
The developer of Helldivers 2 on PS5 is Arrowhead Game Studios, who originally developed the first game all the way back in 2015. The studio has also made Magicka, Gauntlet, and The Showdown Effect.
Helldivers 2 trailer
The Helldivers 2 gameplay trailer shows off a wide variety of environments, aliens to kill, and resources to harvest. The game also looks to be a multiplayer co-op game where you join a group of peacekeepers to spread peace and democracy.
The tone looks quite different from the first game, but the size and scale really show off the ambitions of the studio eight years after the original game.
That covers what we know about the return of this series ahead of the Helldivers 2 release date. There are a number of the top shooting games like our list of thebest FPS gamesalready on PS5, but this could definitely make it onto the list and become one of thebest PS5 gamesoverall.
