Attention, soldiers: Helldivers 2 is now available to pre-order. Published by Sony and developed by Arrowhead, this is a third-person sequel to the top-down original, and has you blasting away the bad guys in tactical four-player co-op. A new trailer has been released to give you the gist: cool weapons, aliens, robots, and friendly fire combine for what should be a very fun co-op title.

It's still a few months away, launching 8th February 2024, but you can now pre-order it to ensure you're there from day one. You can get a physical copy via PlayStation Direct (with other retailers to follow, presumably), or you can opt for the digital version via PS Store or Steam. Whatever the case, the standard version of the game will set you back $39.99 / £34.99.
