No one playing this? I just started a couple of days ago and am having a lot of fun. Co-op is a blast and people online seem to really work together and most seem to have a mic or use the built in commands. Nice to just be able to drop in a for a mission or 2 if time is limited. nice upgrade system and the controls are fairly tight after you get used to them.

My co-worker and I have been playing it moderately. Is enjoyable. Be nice to get a 3-4 man team going. Feel free to add me on PSN: Epyon415

I did co-op with my son and two other randoms online. It is fun when you play co-op. Gets a bit crazy at times. I should have tried to join you.

yes, next time. I'll be on this weekend at some point. Have you play local co-op?
Yeah, a just a few planets local co-op with my son. We are level 3 now. We did two matches online as well (2 local and 2 from online). He killed me a few times, not knowing about friendly fire.

I love the friendly fire dynamic.

If anyone wants to do some missions feel free to add me. Yes my PSN name is terrible but I can't get it changed. :(

I had never heard of this game and stumbled on it this weekend when the glowing reviews started coming out.

I decided to spend the $20 this weekend and give it a go.


Great game. Simple to pick up and fast matches are nice as well.


I like that it has a lot of items which hopefully can lead to many different play styles.

Enjoying this one too. Does it really work cross platform for online? Voice too? I have yet to move to PS4 waiting for the right deal/bundle. But a friend has and was wondering if we could play....

I have played with people who have been playing on all systems and you would have no idea that they are another system until they told you.


Apparently there is an issue in trying to get into games with your friends on other systems. I think they are working on it though, but it definitely works cross platform which is pretty cool.

Yeah, I have noticed that there is no listing of friends on PS4.

The cross platform thing is cool though.

I am getting booted from games quite often though, like when in the post match briefing getting sent back to the main menu.

Still a great game and a great deal at $20.

Hey Seldom, I've seen you playing this on the PS4. There is a friends list within the game although it's a little hidden (if that's what you're referring to). Then you're in the multiplayer screen if you hit R1 (I think) it tabs over to your friends list and will show you if anyone is playing.

I've been meaning to get back into the game. I'm only a level 10 right now but would like to eventually get up to the more difficult missions.

I will keep an eye out for you. I was aware of the R1 friends list but have never seen anyone on my list be in game.

Fellow Helldivers,
Thanks to your sacrifice and bravery, Humanity has prevailed in the 4th Galactic War!

As Super Earth’s elite, we stand against all enemies no matter the cost to ensure that humanity, not aliens, becomes Masters of the Galaxy.

  • New Cyborg “Siege Mech” Enemy Master
  • New Illuminate “Great Eye” Enemy Master
To celebrate the release of this free expansion, we are releasing Helldivers: Masters of the Galaxy Edition Bundle for $19.99. This bundle includes the Entrenched Pack — The AT-47 Anti-Tank Emplacement turret, the Anti-Personnel Barrier, and the SH-32 Directional Kinetic shield. Available for a limited time only.
Super-Earth Ultimate Edition Retail Release

Following Helldivers’ amazing success on PlayStation Store, today we are very happy to announce that Helldivers: Super-Earth Ultimate Edition will launch at select retail stores and PlayStation Store on August 18th.

Saw a couple of conflicting information and wanted to confirm.

Is this a couch co-op game? Wife and I need a new game to play and this looks fun.

(not so sure about $40, though. Ouch.)

I think I paid $17.99 for the base game on the PSN store. The full retail looks like it has a lot more of course.


Yes it has local and online co-op. I play with my two kids (and an online person can play with us as well).

The game is couch and online co-op. 4 players total in any combination of local and online. It is a $20 psn game. The DLC is fun but not needed to win any stage, buying all of it would put it close to $40.

I play with my son on the couch and other divers drop in to our mission from the online universe.

I have over 150 hours in the game. Just so much fun.

The developer is very responsive, latest DLC includes a manned turret and a cycle with side car that the Reddit community had been pining for.

It is cross play and cross buy for vita, ps3 and PS4. I believe that is a first pf its kind. Pretty amazing for a small studio.
