Helldivers 2: Sci-Fi Shooter Dominating PS5 and PC


The highly anticipated HellDivers 2 is finally here, and after spending seven hours defending freedom across the galaxy, I’m ready to share my gaming experience and answer some common questions. First and foremost, HellDivers 2 embodies the quintessential 80s action with an extravagant, parodic, and entertaining style reminiscent of the 1997 film Starship Troopers. This game certainly outperforms any official games licensed by the movie and stands as an excellent successor, almost involuntarily remaking that story.

The game itself is easy to classify as it is a PvE-based shooter, played solo or cooperatively with up to four players. It’s important to note that there are no PvP elements. The game emphasizes the idea of being in a global, real-time war campaign through the player’s personal spaceship that serves as a hub to improve weapons, select combat aids, and customize the character’s appearance.

The gameplay takes place across sectors and individual planets where missions unfold in real-time. There is a specific focus on a touch of MMO elements that contribute to the sense of a living universe, with day-night cycles, dynamic lighting, and weather effects, creating an immersive experience.

The game’s dynamic, arcade-style action is complemented by a sense of realism, challenges, and the need for effective teamwork. This isn’t a “shoot-’em-up” game; every bullet counts, and interacting with the environment affects the experience. Furthermore, HellDivers 2 introduces a fair bit of role-playing elements where players have the opportunity to unlock various armors and upgrades based on game progression.

In terms of monetization, the game involves a significant amount of grinding to unlock improvements, weapons, and abilities. And while real money can be used to acquire better armors with unique buffs, the game ultimately emphasizes the value of teamwork and versatility. Overall, the game provides an engaging experience with minor bugs, promising free future content, and immediate updates.

The first hours of gameplay have been action-packed and intense, accompanied by exceptional voice acting in Spanish and a leveling system that adds depth to the game. With so much left to explore and the promise of future free content, HellDivers 2 is a must-try for anyone who enjoys PvE shooters and lighthearted, enjoyable gaming experiences.
