Helldivers Coming to PS4, PS3, PS Vita in 2014

You may know of Arrowhead Game Studios from our previous games like Magicka and today we’re excited to announce that we’ve teamed up with Sony Computer Entertainment and Foster City Studios to create our next game!

So, for all of you out there, both new fans and old, I give you Helldivers. Built for both single-player campaigns and up to four player co-op missions, Helldivers is a top-down shooter set in a satirical and dystopian future where mankind is ruled by a managed democracy.

Of course, this world also happens to be in a perpetual war against three alien species, one of which we revealed in our Gamescom trailer!

As part of the elite unit called the Helldivers, you choose your deployment zone and dive into battle on procedurally-generated battlefields. Once there, utilize overpowered weapons and Stratagems to defeat the enemies of mankind. Working together as a team will be vital, whether calling in strikes or placing weapons, each action must be totally synchronized to achieve objectives. As with all Arrowhead games, friendly fire is a key part of the game, and if you’re not careful with the Helldivers explosive firepower, you’ll lose the mission and a few friends along the way.

Helldivers features Cross-Play and Cross-Save between PS4, PS3, and PS Vita, something that’ll really enforce the co-op nature of the game, but if your preferred poison is to play locally, this is combinable – so you can have two players on a PS4 with two others joining in on Vitas in the same room.

I guess you’re wondering about the campaign? The story? Well, this is something that we want the players to explore. This isn’t just a four player co-op game; it’s a co-op game that relies on the global efforts of the entire Helldivers community. You’ll fight with the community to save humanity and all of your combined efforts, mistakes and heroic deeds will affect the larger campaign; a campaign where every battle counts and victories unlock cool content for all.

With that, I am really excited to fight alongside you on the battlefield in the not so distant future of 2014.

  • SO excited… great GamesCom guys!!!

  • Looks really cool!

  • Looking forward to this game. Since Warrior’s Lair (a.k.a. Ruin) has been cancelled and Silent Hill Book of Memory slightly lack luster, this game will be my new obsession. And with cross-play, cross-save I can continue to play it anywhere.

    Minute 1 download right here!

  • Yessss, local Vita multiplayer with consoles. That needs to happen more often.

    Very happy with this. Even though I never get to play local MP. xP

  • Thank you Johan! Looks great!

  • Look great!

  • So sort of an MMO-like meta game? Pretty sweet.

  • This looked really impressive during the live-stream. LOVE this type of game.

    My question is, it obviously supports all types of combinations for local co-op, but does it support online combinations as well? For instance, two people playing side-by-side on a PS4, someone else sitting there on their Vita, and a fourth player over the internet? Basically, being able to use any and all means to get a 4-person team together would be awesome!

    Can’t wait to hear more news about this game!

  • 2-player local co-op? emergent storyline? 1080p native with HD audio? Vita cross-controller support?

    count me in :)

  • oOo didn’t know it was also coming to Vita, even though I watched the conference. Awesome. Day 1.

    Dead Nation x Chronicles of Riddick & Starship Troopers

    Day 1

  • Is it exclusive to PlayStation?

  • This and Rime are my highlight of the Show am getting both day thanks to both dev teams and Sony

  • This game looks amazing. Its exactly what the Vita has been needing. Nice job Johan! The story seems cool and the top down view will look great on the Vita screen. Can’t wait for release!

  • I really liked the trailer for this game. It looks amazing! Like Star Wars, Riddick meets Diablo. Speaking of Diablo, hopefully, Blizzard and Sony PlayStation will bring Diablo 3 to the PS Vita.

  • Looking forward to this.

  • Looks ridiculously good. Can’t wait to get it on Vita and hopefully a PS4 as well by then.
