- Arrowhead Game Studios CEO and Game Director Johan Pilestedt
posted up a video today at Gamescom 2013 announcing that Helldivers is coming to PS4, PS3 and PlayStation Vita in 2014.
To quote: You may know of Arrowhead Game Studios from our previous games like Magicka and today we're excited to announce that we've teamed up with Sony Computer Entertainment and Foster City Studios to create our next game!
So, for all of you out there, both new fans and old, I give you Helldivers. Built for both single-player campaigns and up to four player co-op missions, Helldivers is a top-down shooter set in a satirical and dystopian future where mankind is ruled by a managed democracy.
Of course, this world also happens to be in a perpetual war against three alien species, one of which we revealed in our Gamescom trailer!
As part of the elite unit called the Helldivers, you choose your deployment zone and dive into battle on procedurally-generated battlefields. Once there, utilize overpowered weapons and Stratagems to defeat the enemies of mankind.
Working together as a team will be vital, whether calling in strikes or placing weapons, each action must be totally synchronized to achieve objectives....
