Jumping into the action with Helldivers 2 looks like a blast, and I’m ready to serve with my brothers and sisters. Is there a dedicated story mode on offer here, or are we just going to be jumping straight into missions?
Does Helldivers 2 Have a Dedicated Story Mode?
Suppose you’re hoping to learn more about the lore of Helldivers and see what kind of wacky adventures they’ll be getting into once again. In that case, you may be disappointed to hear that this particular entry has no dedicated story mode. That could change in the future, as the main draw of the Helldivers franchise is the wild multiplayer side of things, but a story could be added as paid or free DLC.
For those who are looking to learn more, there seem to be dedicated Lore drops that give more backstory to the Helldivers themselves, so we can at least look forward to that. Even if Helldivers 1 didn’t have the most in-depth story, the smaller structure of the missions made each little portion more exciting and accessible to play.
Does Helldivers 2 Have a Solo Mode?
If you’re hoping to dive in and take care of the hordes of enemies plaguing the planets you’re hoping to liberate, you’ll be glad to know that you can dive into missions on your own. While there may not be a dedicated Solo option, you can set party preference so that it’s you versus the world instead of populating the party with other players. You should also be able to set it up so that you can play with AI bots instead of other live players to make the journey a little less lonely. For those hoping to showcase that they’re the ultimate killer, however, you can embark on your own — but just know the world isn’t going to be kind just because you’re by yourself.
