At long last, we have a release date for third-person cooperative shooter Helldivers 2, though it is a bit later than originally expected. During today’s PlayStation State of Play, developer Arrowhead Game Studios announced the game will launch February 8th for PlayStation 5 and PC, with pre-orders going live for two editions of the game on September 22nd. It had previously been announced as releasing later this year.

The two editions on offer are the Standard Edition and Super Citizen Edition, both of which come with three armor sets if you pre-order. The premium Super Citizen Edition includes several bonus items – the DP-53 Savior of the Free armor set, Will of the People cape, MP-98 Knight submachine gun, Super Citizen status for your character, and an add-on minigame to equip on your ship called Stratagem Hero. It also includes access to Premium Warbond content, which sounds a lot like a season pass.
Helldivers 2 is one of my most anticipated upcoming games, and I am keenly looking forward to spreading managed democracy early next year. Check out some new gameplay with massive titan bug enemies:
