Helldivers 2

HELLDIVERS 2 has not been a topic for us at IndieGala. It’s understandable since it’s a fairly new release. However, the previous Helldivers game has, and it was one of our most interesting writings. The article was all about the exploration of military science fiction through movies, and you can check it out here.

But we’re here specifically about Helldivers 2 and Helldivers 2 alone.

Oh and the Helldivers 2 Super Citizen Edition which you can purchase here. If you’re not particularly interested in this edition, then just go ahead and grab the regular game. It’s available here at IndieGala, and so are the previous Helldivers packs and editions here.

Helldivers 2


You will be assembled into squads of up to four Helldivers and assigned strategic missions.

Watch each other’s back–friendly fire is an unfortunate certainty of war, but victory without teamwork is impossible.


Everything on every planet wants you dead. That’s what we’re dealing with.

Each enemy has distinct and unpredictable characteristics, tactics, and behavior – but they all fight ferociously and without fear or morality.


Capturing enemy planets, defending against invasions, and completing missions will contribute to our overall effort.

This war will be won or lost depending on the actions of everyone involved.

We stand together, or we fall apart.
