The developers of Helldivers 2 have confirmed new content expansions that will come for free before the game’s launch. The content that will be added will expand on the game’s story and other new features that players will be able to play around with post-launch.

This news comes from a recent PlayStation Blog about Helldivers 2’s story. In it, Elina Lindstrom from Arrowhead Games talks about the story and developments in Helldivers 2.

Additionally, it provides some much-needed insight into the world of Helldivers 2 and the events that have happened 100 years since the first game’s events.

“Helldivers 2 takes place a century after the events of the first game, with Super Earth having emerged victorious against its adversaries – the deadly, bug-like Terminids, the grotesque Cyborgs, and the inscrutable Illuminates,” the blog post states.

“In a shocking turn of events, the Terminids have broken free of their farms and begun spreading throughout the galaxy.

The Super-Earth Armed Forces have been struggling to quarantine them on their farm planets but are stretched thin – so when a mysterious new enemy enters the fray, Super Earth has no choice but to mobilize the Helldivers once again.”

Helldivers will have to complete time-sensitive Major Orders, challenging all players to work together to achieve large-scale goals, the outcome of which will shape the story in the future.

These missions will be shaped by the players, meaning that players will be able to shape the story around them.

In addition to the insight into the story of Helldivers, the post is finalized with the announcement that the game will receive future expansions.

According to the post, “the universe of Helldivers 2 will grow and change to give our players refreshed gameplay, introducing new tools, new challenges, and new threats from around the galaxy.”

As such, players will be able to have some new content after the game’s launch on February 8.
