Meet Helldivers – the latest creation from Arrowhead studio
An extensive, yet uncomplicated shooter with a bird’s eye view.
Originally the game presented at Gamescom, from which the following trailer comes:
The player will have the opportunity to play the role of a member of the elite unit that protects the Super-Earth from the fighting with each other, three alien races. The idea may be hackneyed, but then it gets much more interesting. The gameplay will be based on the cooperation of players (it looks similar to the smartphone Dead Trigger 2). The intergalactic warfare is expected to last from 4 to 6 weeks (real), and players’ achievements will determine the outcome of the conflict. To this should be added the possibility of playing in teams of two or four. As you progress, you will gain access to better equipment, and collect boosters called Stratagems.
The creators announce that the race of the opponents and the environment will have a key impact on the gameplay. For example, the icy wastes noticeably reduce your movement speed. The enemies, on the other hand, will differ in numbers, weapons, armor, etc., so you will have to frequently change your strategy and equipment. An additional diversion will be the mentioned Stratagems, thanks to which you will be able to call for artillery support or set up automatic defense turrets. There will also be mechs and heavier weapons.
I do not know about you, but I am looking forward to this title. The game is to appear on PS3, PS Vita and PS4, of which the latter is to run in 60 FPS in 1080p. The premiere is scheduled for this year, but no more precise information has been provided.
