The creators of Helldivers 2 are crystal clear and make it very clear that all of the game’s post-launch content will come to PlayStation and PC for free “always”. The shooter lands on PS5 and PC soon.
Helldivers 2, the third-person shooter sequel from Arrowhead, marks the return of a shooting formula that has been greatly renewed from its first installment. The game arrives on February 8th on PS5 and PC.
Given its imminent release, the creators of Helldivers 2 wanted to offer more details about this proposal and provide information about possible doubts that future players of this online cooperative multiplayer title may have.
Helldivers 2 confirms completely free post-launch content
Given its constantly expanding gameplay, the release of Helldivers 2 is just the first step on a long road that will bring new content periodically. Arrowhead has wanted to talk about this post-launch novelty system.
The development company has made it clear that players will “constantly” see new content and best of all, it will be free. Helldivers 2 distances itself from possible competitors like Destiny 2 thanks to this strategy.
Johan Pilestedt, Arrowhead’s CEO of Creative and Commercial Strategy, revealed this information on the game’s official Discord channel in response to a fan. Everything that comes to Helldivers 2 after the launch will be free.
Oh yes! We are constantly going to add more things to the game! Enemies, objectives, biomes, etc. They will always be free and will expand the experience, he commented. So there are no doubts about Arrowhead’s business model with this title.
While no roadmap has been revealed for the PS5 and PC game, it is great news that players will not have to pay to expand the gaming experience in the not too distant future.
The developers of Helldivers 2 will be very attentive to the players, as they can see how the community approaches the game’s Operations and Assignments and react accordingly, rewarding with new missions and equipment.
If you are not familiar with this saga, you should know that the first Helldivers has similar elements, but the sequel has completely changed the perspective. This is how we evaluated Helldivers in our review for PS4, PS3, and PS Vita at the time:
In its cooperative mode, Helldivers offers good moments if we enjoy its galactic battles in the company of friends, although it suffers from a somewhat repetitive development and, at times, unbalanced difficulty.
