New Screens and Details for Helldivers

By Cindy Minguez,
Helldivers is a new game being developed by Arrowhead Games that is so punishing, teamwork is the only way to survive. This top-down action game requires careful communication and coordination to avoid not only enemy fire, but friendly fire, as well. The game can be played in single player or with up to four players locally or online. More content is unlocked in this Cross-Play/Cross-Save title as teams succeed.

Set in a dystopian future, players fight to protect “Super Earth,” where a managed democracy has blurred the lines between military and government rule. We are losing the war, and the HELLDIVERS are the last line of defense against three invading enemy species.

HELLDIVERS focuses on teamwork, as squads battle formidable foes to become HEROES OF THE FEDERATION. Communication is key; cover your teammates as they crawl to safety and revive your fallen comrades to get them back into the fight. Tactically operate weapons and gear as a team and use the full might of the military with a unique signaling mechanic. Need reinforcements? Send up distress signals and have friends join the action any time.
