Developed by Arrowhead Game Studios, makers of indie hit title Magicka and produced by Sony Computer Entertainment Worldwide Studios (SCE WWS) Foster City Studio, HELLDIVERS is a top-down squad based shooter developed exclusively for PlayStation systems to push the boundaries of Cross-Play capabilities on PS4, PS3 and the PS Vita.
Set in a dystopian future, players fight to protect “Super Earth,” where a managed democracy has blurred the lines between military and government rule. We are losing the war according to games plot, and the HELLDIVERS are the last line of defense against three invading enemy species.
HELLDIVERS focuses on teamwork, as squads battle formidable foes to become ‘heroes of the federation’. Communication is key; cover your teammates as they crawl to safety and revive your fallen comrades to get them back into the fight. Tactically operate weapons and gear as a team and use the full might of the military with a unique signaling mechanic. Need reinforcements? Send up distress signals and have friends join the action any time.
Up to four players can play together, either online or locally around the same television. HELLDIVERS features Cross-Play and Cross-Save functionality, where players on the console of their choice can fight together to survive in an unforgiving environment. So, someone on their PS4, another player on the PS3 and two other players on two separate PS Vitas can all be joined together cooperatively online reaping havoc on the enemy. I agree, this is serious…
Fight with the HELLDIVERS community in global meta-games and individual missions to save Super Earth. Every battle counts in the Galactic War, where victory unlocks content for all.
As expected HELLDIVERS will be available for the PS4, PS3 and PS Vita systems in 2014.
