During the May 2023 PlayStation Showcase, Helldivers 2, a sequel to the original co-op shooter was announced. The sequel will opt for a new third-person over the shoulder perspective, leaving behind the top-down perspective used in the first entry. The trailer showed the new combat style, alongside some of the new weapons available.

In this sequel to the original tongue in cheek shoot ‘em up, the player will be joining a squad of elite military forces to stave off the invading alien forces that are threatening to conquer Super-Earth.

The first Helldivers game was originally released for the PS4 and PS Vita in 2015.

Helldivers 2 is currently being developed by Arrowhead Game Studios for the PS5 and PC. The game is scheduled for a 2023 release date.
