The success of Palworld has made numerous headlines since the early access launch in January. And it’s no wonder: Pocketpair’s title managed to sell 8 million copies in just 6 days, a feat that few games can aspire to. Perhaps that’s why it’s surprising what Helldivers 2 has achieved, a game that has already surpassed Palworld in the sales charts.
The shooter developed by Arrowhead Game Studios and distributed by PlayStation Studios has already achieved several milestones. To begin with, it has already surpassed Palworld in the list of the best-selling games before being released. It also has the honor of being the first Sony “exclusive” that can be played simultaneously on PC and PS5 since its release.
Helldivers 2, sequel to the first Helldivers published in 2015, is Sony’s proposal to enter the world of games as a service. In it, we can play with up to three friends while facing hordes of aliens and robots. Below, we leave you a trailer that shows cross-platform play.
The decision to release Helldivers 2 on PC and PS5 at the same time is quite a surprise, especially coming from Sony. Until now, the company had always spaced out releases between console and PC (Marvel’s Spider-Man 2, God of War, etc). Will it become a habit for Sony? Sales figures and players will decide.
