Helldivers 2 is so very nearly here. But before its launch on PS5 and PC this 8th February, developer Arrowhead Game Studios is giving you the chance to get up speed with the game’s story so far, with its aptly titled “The Story So Far” trailer.
Taking place a century after the events of the first game, the gist of it is Super Earth isn’t doing so well. The bug-like Terminids have broken free, and now threaten colonies throughout the Galaxy, and a new threat called Automatons have also been up to mischief, even going so far as to steal babies from under their mother’s noses. And so, once again, as a member of Super Earth’s elite task force, you’re in line to take action.
You can watch “The Story So Far” trailer for Helldivers 2 below, and you should because it’s pretty entertaining.
What it doesn’t tell you, however, is that plenty more content is planned for Helldivers 2 after launch, too. Free updates are promised for the game, introducing new tools, new challenges, and even new threats from around the Galaxy.
For those who get invested in this multiplayer-focused third-person shooter, then, there’s a lot to look forward to. If you’re eager to jump in, pro-loading is live now on both PS5 and PC for those who have pre-ordered.
