Arrowhead Game Studios, makers of indie hit title Magicka, has unveiled their newest title, Helldivers, exclusively to PlayStation brands. The title is a is a top-down squad shooter that will offer to push the boundaries of cross-play support by allowing up to four players can play together, either online or locally around the same television and through various Sony platforms.
Set in a dystopian future, players fight to protect “Super Earth,” where a managed democracy has blurred the lines between military and government rule. We are losing the war, and the Helldivers are the last line of defense against three invading enemy species.
Helldivers focuses on teamwork, as squads battle formidable foes to become Heros of the Federation. Communication is key; cover your teammates as they crawl to safety and revive your fallen comrades to get them back into the fight. Tactically operate weapons and gear as a team and use the full might of the military with a unique signaling mechanic. Need reinforcements? Send up distress signals and have friends join the action any time.

Helldivers will be available for the PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3 and PlayStation Vita systems in 2014.
