Helldivers is an upcoming top down shooter game developed by Arrowhead Game Studios.[1] The game will be released for the PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4 and PlayStation Vita.[2]

Game play[edit]

Gameplay takes place on one of several randomly-generated maps where players must accomplish a series of tasks. Players can use several weapons to accomplish their objectives and can also employ a variety of special skills, referred to as stratagems within the game. The game's difficulty can be set to one of three levels: Challenging, Hard, or "Hell Dive".[3]

Reception[edit]

IGN played the demo version of Helldivers at the 2013 Gamescom, and reviewed the demo positively.[3] Game Informer also gave the demo a positive rating, commenting that it "isn't easy, but this throwback to classic top down shooters is still a good time."[4]
