Johan Pilestedt, CEO and Game Director for HELLDIVERS™ says:

“We are thrilled to be releasing HELLDIVERS™: Democracy Strikes Back on PC – our fourth game so far – and for the platform which we first started developing games on.

We have done our very best to ensure that the game will feel as good as possible when played on PC. With a wide range of graphic options, rebindable keys and an added text chat, we hope that we will meet the expectations which players have of a PC title.”


We have received so much support from the community already, and feel very happy and privileged to welcome even more new players into the Helldivers universe. We hope that many more people get the chance to experience Freedom, Liberty and Democracy for themselves!

We will soon release more information about all details regarding the launch of HELLDIVERS™ on Steam so keep your eyes on this website.

Welcome to the HELLDIVERS, new recruits!


  • Slizarus

    Is there PS4 – PC crossplay? I hope so, we need to unite to defend democracy!

    • Hi Slizarus,

      Unfortunately you will not be able to play directly with your brothers-in-arms on PC, but both PSN and PC players will contribute to the same Galactic Campaign :)

      • Slizarus

        That’s a satisfying compromise, I’m glad you did that :)

      • SonicEdge7

        Follow-up question: will our profile be transferable from ps3 to pc and vice-versa?

  • Ray

    Will any of our progress from the playstation side be carried over to pc should we choose to buy it on steam, or do we have to start all over again? (exp, dlc etc. etc.)

    Gonna be a long and expensive grind if that’s true..

    • Progress and DLC will not be carried over from PS, sorry :(

      • Bielak206

        But actualy why? It’s soo hard to sort PSN id’s with exp or generate some one time ouse keys with acces? I mean you have your own code which you can paste to your PC account and you can do one time transfer? Then you have separate account’s like normal but it would be better for 50lvl players… Just saying…

  • cusman

    Does Arrowhead realize their gem of a game will be the first ever Sony published game on Steam? You guys are making history as Sony continues to embrace bridging the gap between PC and Console gamers by allowing cross-play like in Rocket League.

    I really hope even if it doesn’t have that out the gate, that it is in someone’s priority backlog, to get cross-play and cross-chat working for Helldivers between PC Steam and PlayStation platforms (like in Rocket League)

    • Thank you for the wonderful words Cusman!

    • Tim Cole

      “Sony continues to embrace bridging the gap between PC and Console gamers” didn’t they make SOE patch up Planetside 2 for the PlayStation release and then sold off SOE very quickly after? Seems more like they’re getting away from PC and banking more on this new generation of outdated hardware.

    • Guvna

      Papo and yo was the first.

  • guudgu

    Hi, I don’t wanna look too intrusive but, please, can you guys confirm whether the steam version was pitched by Arrowhead or Sony?
    It’s extremely peculiar coming from them.

    • Sorry, we can’t discuss these details, you would need to contact Sony with your questions :)

  • Javier Ornelas

    Hi! i’ve read down that will not be cross-play between pc-sony consoles, but i already have the game on my ps vita and i wonder if the “profile” it will share between both or it will be completely separated?

  • Lionel

    The decision to put the game on steam came from sony or of you? if the sony is a surprise.

    • Arown

      Every one of their games were on steam so you can be sure that’s the decision is coming from arrowhead. I am even pretty sure that it was part of the deal when they sign with sony, to be able to release it later on PC after the PS4 release.

    • We can’t really discuss decisions regarding the contracts I’m afraid :) But looking forward to sharing Helldivers with more players!

  • Misaka

    As an old player of HELLDIVER™, I just want to say I can’t be more disappointed. I’ve bought all of your previous DLCs separately, and at the end I was informed that if I want to get more DLCs for free, then I have to buy a PS4 Theme which is free for those who buy a Blu-ray Edition. Now I know that all I have been playing all long is just another big trial version of this game, and there’s no compensation for old loyal players who have followed this game from the very beginning. It hurts, man, it just hurts.

    • Sorry you feel that way.

      Sony are the ones in charge of the store, but I know there were a few problems with some of the regions, like Asia. What region are you from? It would be best to contact your local Sony Customer services and double check :)

      • Misaka

        Well, you got it right, I come from Hong Kong server…In the bundle, there is a PS4 theme (HKD$27) and all previous DLCs( except the lastest 2 DLCs), I’ve already buy the DLCs and I still need to pay for the extra theme to get free DLCs. Thank you for your help, I’ll contact Hong Kong Sony to see if there is anything to fix.Thx

      • Here’sHoping

        Why no discount for steam sale / why no 4 pack? :[

        • This is something that is up to Steam or Sony and unfortunately we ourselves do not decide :)

  • Misaka


  • LRicaldi

    Please take my money.. again (got the PS version) :D. I am double dipping this one for sure

  • Sir Scott

    how About for a Pc .Such as my windows stupid 10 comp. Only because my Ps2 and games where stolen otherwise i would have bought a PS3 or 4 for fun ,I am using a computer for fun.

  • Purp

    Any chance of PC/PS4 crossplay? I’d love to spread democracy with friends on Steam who don’t own a PS4, without having to rebuy the game+DLC.

    • Unfortunately you will not be able to cross-play with your brothers-in-arms on PS, but you will all contribute to the same Galactic Campaign :)

      • Adam Bell

        Does that mean there’s no plan for this in the future? A friend of mine just picked it up on PC and is getting excited about it but I’ve already been playing on PS4!

        • Disappointing. That’s exactly what I came here to ask! I love the PS4 version but would love to play with my PC friends.

  • Gabriel uz

    Lo que deben hacer es crear un nuevo escenario con nuevas misiones y también agregar otros jefes o bichos más raros… Para que no se vuelva monótono y aburrido.

  • Subedii

    Any word on a Linux version?
    That’s right, I’m one of _those_ people.

    Would be nice to see, even if it happened post-release (though of course, simultaneous release isn’t something I’d complain about :) ).

    • Sadly no, but if there’s any change in the future we will be sure to let people know :)

  • reloll

    Will it be available for Linux?

    • Unfortunately not, sorry :( If there’s any change in the future we will let people know.

  • Jhonnatan Philipe

    You ended the friendship with the sony ? ‘ll Receive the same attention ? or you will only think of PC ?

    • We are still very much working with Sony :)

      • Jhonnatan Philipe

        Ufa … ! :D

  • Pleinair

    support cross buy with playstation?

  • jakok

    I think PS versions have Korean language option, but, according to the store page, Steam version does not. Is it an error or intentional?

    • Thanks for letting us know, we will have a look into this!

    • Hello, I have just checked the Steam page now and Korean is showing up there!

      • jakok

        Great! Thank you. It means even more fun to our co-op friends squad ;)

  • PewPewWooWoo!

    You know what. Fallout 4 just came out, Battlefront is coming out today, and I couldn’t care any less. I check the steam page for this game EVERY single day to see if they have a date on it yet. This stuff right here really takes me back and I LOVE it.

    • This must be one of the better reviews we’ve gotten :D Thanks you for the awesome comment!
      (Hope you saw the latest blog post has a release date and some more info)

  • Sergy

    Is there a chance that, at least, you tell us when are you going to specify the release date?

  • Tom C

    Dying to play this game! Any update on the release date? Thanks!

    • Yes! In the latest blog post we announced the date, official release at December 7th with pre-orderers able to play a weekend earlier. You can also read up on the different versions available in the post.

  • DEveuille

    I bought all the dlc on my playstation, now that if i am to buy everything again from pc, does the digital deluxe edition includes all dlc ?

    • In the latest blog post here you can read up on more details about the release and the versions :) The deluxe edition is with all the DLC among other things.

      • DEveuille

        thank you and it’s good to hear that

  • Adrian

    you guys are awesome and I will be honest the first thing is great that you are porting this to pc I have the vita version but unfortunately some times I am only going solo in hard mission due to more people on the screens in the vita ( the ps vita ) the lag is horrendous not saying the game is bad though is just the way the vita is performing its just bad and some details is not there ( but hey no regrets still played an awesome game) hope it come out ok in PC you guys really did a good job with the game just one thing is the steam version edition going to include all the dlc from the first to the last ( the weapons , uniforms and vehicles )

    • Thanks for your kind words and wishes! Nice to hear you enjoy the game :) We do try to work on the Vita to improve where possible, but there are some limitations when developing games for cross-platform :( Anyway, good luck on your Helldives!

      • Adrian

        not to sound like a noob ( well I am still getting use to using steam) but do we have to make an account from your blog to play the steam version or the game itself is tied to the steam account (experienced when I sign up in warframe that I have to make a warframe account so I am assuming the same thing)

      • Adrian

        about the account thing nevermind but I have one concern with the game its good I played it the minute the download is finished but its just the mouse cursor seem to move on its own in the game even i had a constant battle for just trying to aim properly ( really when I the mouse and aim steady it swerves and stop me shooting ) anyway you could fix this?

  • Bowzachi

    If you guys ever get Steam-PS4 crossplay working I’m in for 3 copies as gifts to my PC buddies.
