While the original Helldivers may have been released back in 2015, it still sees a surprisingly large number of players due to its inclusion with PlayStation Plus. Is the sequel going to be available on day one, or do we need to buy it before we try it?
Is Helldivers 2 Available on PlayStation Plus Premium?
If you’re hoping to give Helldivers 2 a whirl before making a purchase, you’ll be out of luck — it isn’t included with any tier of PlayStation Plus. You’ll need any tier of PlayStation Plus if you’re hoping to partake in its multiplayer shenanigans on console, but there are no plans to bring this particular shooter to the subscription service anytime in the future. That doesn’t mean that we won’t have the chance to see it on there sometime in the future, but it just won’t be available on day one. Thankfully, for those hoping to find a budget-friendly shooter that is current-gen only, Helldivers 2 retails for $39.99 rather than the standard $70, so it’s easier to afford for all types of gamers.
Is a Helldivers 2 Demo Available?
It’s understandable to be a bit confused about Helldivers 2 and want to try it out before you make the purchase. Unfortunately, there is no confirmed demo coming for the game either. It’s going to be a leap of faith if you’re hoping to jump into this one — but what else is a true Helldiver supposed to do? The first entry in the franchise is beloved by many fans, even years after its release, so I have faith that this will do the series justice, even if it is a completely different change of pace compared to the original.
Can You Play Helldivers 2 on PS4?
While the original Helldivers launched on PS4, it looks like the sequel is skipping out on this particular hardware. If you’re hoping to jump into this adventure, you’re going to need to upgrade your hardware or get ready to play on a PC. It seems that the graphical updates may just be too intense for the last-generation hardware to handle, especially if the team at Arrowhead Game Studio is hoping to keep that 60FPS cap the standard across systems.
