Sony’s new co-op shooter is off to a great start

Helldivers 2 is off to a great start on Steam, as the PC version launched alongside the PlayStation 5 edition.\r\nThe co-op action game from Arrowhead Game Studios is published by Sony Interactive Entertainment on PS5 and PC via Steam (where the publisher is listed as PlayStation PC LLC). \r\nAs reported by IGN US, Helldivers 2 is currently the 15th most played game on Steam with 53,189 concurrent players at the time of writing, a number that will no doubt grow throughout the day, week and first weekend.\r \nBut not only that: Helldivers 2 is also the second best-selling game by revenue on Steam, ahead of hits like Palworld and Call of Duty.\r\nThe game description reads:\r\n\r\nHelldivers 2 is a shooter third-person cooperative game that sees the elite Helldiver forces fight to win an intergalactic struggle and free the galaxy from growing alien threats. With a third-person perspective, players will use a variety of weapons (pistols, machine guns, flamethrowers) and stratagems (turrets, airstrikes, etc.) to shoot and kill enemy forces.\r\nCombat is accompanied by massive amounts of blood and dismemberments of alien forces. Blood splatter and dismemberment can also be seen by players when hit by environmental explosions or friendly fire. Enemy camps and battlefields feature bloodstains and dismembered bodies.\r\n\r\nIt’s worth noting that Helldivers 2 is not a full-price game, costing just $39.99. It is much more difficult to get an idea of ​​its popularity on PS5, as Sony does not disclose player numbers on its platform.\r\nThe launch of Helldivers 2 is a bit unusual as Sony prefers to release its games on consoles earlier than on PC (such as the upcoming Horizon Forbidden West), but it is not unprecedented for a game developed externally and published by Sony. \r\n
