Is Helldivers 2 Crossplay and Cross Platform?

The answer to the player's question; Is Helldivers 2 crossplay is yes.
The answer to players’ question, is Helldivers 2 crossplay? is yes.

Helldivers 2 is available for both PlayStation 5 and PC, and players looking to play the game with their friends on a different system can rejoice as the game has full crossplay between the platforms. Arrowhead Studios announced this via a blog post, saying that “community and teamwork are the most important pillars” of the game and that crossplay is essential.

Given that the game is dependent on co-op, crossplay is a must-have for the sequel so that players can run missions without any issues, and the developer has made sure of it for a smooth experience. All players need to do is visit the Social tab, generate a friend code, and get their pals on the team.

However, the game does not support cross platform progression or cross-save, meaning that players cannot transfer their game progression from PC to PlayStation and vice versa, and if they switch systems, they’ll need to start a fresh game. Cross-progression is a feature that is seen in the majority of games released these days, but Helldivers 2 does not support it as of now.

Another question that PC players have about the game is: Is Helldivers 2 on Game Pass? Unfortunately, the answer is no. The game is released exclusively for PC and PlayStation and is not available on Xbox or Game Pass. Considering how its predecessor never came to the subscription service, Helldivers 2 might also not come to Game Pass. The game is also not free to play, and players need to purchase the game.
