Helldivers 2 impressively sits with ‘Mostly Positive‘ ratings on Steam, even though the game arrived very recently.

Furthermore, the game is climbing the charts fast enough to compete with the likes of Palworld and Counter-Strike 2. Arrowhead CEO and Creative Director behind the game assures the community that there’s a long way to go, but the game shows the potential to get to the top.

While the gameplay appeals to most players who’ve been acquainted with co-op shooters, it’s totally possible to have a great time playing the game solo. However, your actions will leave an impact on the world, even if you choose to brave these treacherous lands alone.

The Game’s World Invites You to Restore Law and Order

On the surface, Helldivers 2 gives you a raw sense of restoring liberation. But the deeper issues within the game’s universe transpire against everyone who decides to fight for the good. The more you explore the game’s world-building and combat systems, the more curious you’ll get.

On its Steam page, the game’s introduction describes how the combat system blends with the world:

Combat is accompanied by frequent sprays of blood and dismemberment as players exterminate the alien forces or players and squad mates are hit by environmental explosions or friendly fire.

Guns and glory aren’t the only takeaways from the game, though. Massive co-op experiences are part of the process as you fight and strategize your way against hordes of enemies. Given the game’s impressive player count and reviews, despite how recently it came out, there’s a good chance that this is going to be one of those unexpected experiences you’ll end up liking.
