Last week, SCEA registered a domain name "helldiversgame.com" and now has also filed a trademark application for the name "Helldivers", is the a brand new PS4 exclusive which will be announced at upcoming gaming event GamesCom 2013?.
Hell Divers? well can't wait to see it revealed soon!
Gamescom cant come soon enough, Helldivers definitely has my interest
keep them coming
This is a stupid question, but when the hell is Gamescom?
@Mario August 21-25, I believe.
For some reason, I have a feeling it's this... http://www.gamespot.com/new... Keep em coming Sony!!!
6 days left baby!
So, what could it be about ?
Skips I think you got it right Gamescom should be fun, especially now that MS won't be launching in many European countries, this is Sony's time to show games and make ps4 the day one buy for many European gamers who were buying Xbox one Last years gamescom was a lot of fun, but this years should have the E3 feel
This title makes me want a game with a badass character who has to protect the world by jumping down into hell and slaying all kinds of montrosities... hopefully it's at least something in this magnitude and epicness :D
@ABeastNamedTariq Gamescom is August 21st to the 25th but Sonys and Microsofts conference are on the 20th
Lol it has your interest and you haven't even seen a trailer for it yet? You must be super hyped dude...
Better not be like that one vita game they announced before their e3 conference lol
World war 2 plane combat game?
That's what I thought from the title too. Sounds like a fighter squadron.
Helldivers ? I gotta be honest that doesn't sound like much of a first party exclusive haha hopefully it's something cool though.
Sounds like a game from Sony Santa Monica or it could be an indie title as well. Cant wait to see it. :)
Helldivers sounds like a violent swimming game
@Skips I think that is a sound theory and makes a lot more sense I just don't feel like that is a name Suda51 Would call his name it seems too generic. Unless it is a code or test name? It is a partnership he formed with SCEU and Gamescom is coming up so it does make sense. Personally what I want it to be though is. CRIMSON SKIES COMING BACK! (one of the only games I was jealous of on xbox. The Studio shut down and Microsoft no longer owns the rights to it soooo. Edit to clarify Helldivers defnitely sounds to be referencing aviation of one kind or another. I look forward to Suda51's new game whatever it is but I think it is something different. Unless Helldivers refers LITERALLY to diving into hell in which case it fits his style perfectly. Second edit....crimson skies is definitely not possible. I just got my hopes up and started researching it. Microsoft Game Studios still owns the Intellectual Property rights. Though the original creators own the right to develop for the franchise if it was created it would be for Xbox One. I wouldn't be surprised if that is one of their mystery exclusives yet to be revealed...TT Third edit: I am just going to shut up now because it is isn't Suda51 who partnered with SCEU just another director on the game Massimo Guarini So now I think you are absolutely correct. I rarely ever skim articles this is why. ><
i really don't have any idea what exactly it is all about... but the title "Helldivers" sounds really COOL....
im hoping its some game in same genre as treasures of the deep i think it was called, something fresh with no guns for a start would be nice.
oh boy.... Sony you beauty... just bring it.... your support for PS4 is the main reason why xbox fan base is shifting towards Playstation.. and yes that title "Helldivers" sounds really cool.....
here we go again.... destiny of spirits was also trademarked by scea and ended up just a free to play game for vita.... and some ridiculous site (4chan) hype most people here, by saying its demon souls 2: destiny of spirits. lol well lets see gamescom is just only a few days left, im hyped!!^_^
Agreed people need to move their hype meters down a notch. Although yes the name sounds cool, Destiny of Spirits also sounded like it could have been something really epic. It actually looks pretty cool the more I have looked at it, I guess if you like very old traditional RPG's you won't mind Destiny of Spirits but I know those type of games right now don't have mass appeal. Point being is the one you made, people don't want to disappoint themselves again thinking it is more than it may turn out to be. Get hyped once you have seen the actual game, keep your expectations low before then so you won't be disappointed. I do that for anything in life really.
Yea, people need to turn the hype meter down a couple of notches. I know most of us are supporters of Sony and that's all well and good, but THIS type of hype only sets up for disappointment. The way the hype is right now, they would have to announce vita price cut to $150, announce like 10 new IPs(exclusive), PS4&Vita bundle, 5 new Vita AAA-titles and The Last Guardian just to meet the bar. That type of conference is absolutely ludicrous. I don't even dare dream something like that and neither should any of you lest you want your hearts broken. So chill out guys...
Exactly Lmao the hype goes far fetch when a trademark of an announce game get filed. I hope we get Eight Days. The demo looked amazing when they showed it on the ps3.
Haven't been this excited for a system launch since 2000.
Helldivers? Interesting. According to the article, it could be a WWII air combat game. I just think they're doing it for the cool name though lol. We'll see. I just want Gamescom to be here already, the secrecy is eating away at my soul!
i hope nothing like that lol , Hell divers would be cool if it was some kind of underwater exploration kind of thing or maybe a game kinda like those mining games but fleshed out.
Glad Ill be at gamescom and see what's going on firsthand!
I'm not loving the name Helldivers, but interested to hear more about it.
me neither... Hell Divers. Sounds like a B-grade movie.. lol... but hey.. it could turn out to be awesome. So who knows.
I am with you on this. I want to see it but the name does fit comfortably with me. Like aaron5829 said it sound like a b grade movie. But I am curious to see more
As some bloke once said, "what's in a name..?" :D
I hope its a good game
I think everyone hopes a game will be good. :)
Except for the Xbots LOL
The more new material, the better. Why gamescom couldn't be earlier like on the 17th?
I didn't think 3 days makes that much of a difference. Everything is set up to happen during the week though. It's tuesday through friday so saying the 17th would start on a saturday I doubt that would ever happen honestly
Hope Sony shows tons of exclusive at Gamescom. Can't wait.
PS 4 LIFE
Diving into the earth's crust would be cool. Like The Core, but good.
Mecha vs Kaiju type game, trust me.
I'm hoping it's a AAA Vita title. Edit: The page got taken down.
you made me smile by that comment ^_^
It either sounds like an Indie game or an open world crime game.
Honestly I'm not a fan of the name Helldivers. Speaking of game titles, I think the worst game title I've heard in a while is The Swapper.
Helldivers! You've been down too long in the midnight sea...
they should have called it muffdivers.. anyway lol n4g sees a name, and already its going to the next best thing i remember when r* showed a poster of the agent. all the sony fanboys began calling it a masterpiece off of a poster lol
well i'm genuinely excited.
By the title alone, it sounds cheesy...like an indie game.
sttheo(dot)deviantart(dot)com/ art/hell-diver-ares-167241448 I think it's worth mentioning that these images of concept art have Hell Diver in the description. It could be nothing, however, the creator has said he has done concept art for many games and has recently said he is working with Sony for an unannounced game. After looking at the designs and names, I can't help but feel it is related to Santa Monica Studios. They have said they are working on a new IP and have also stated Michael Angeli (the Battlestar Galactica writer) is working with them. Even in the descriptions of all the concept art, it says "mix of professional sifi soldier and old world hunter warrior." I can't help but feel this is what the are working on. I know I shouldn't jump to conclusions though, but I'd like to hear others thoughts on this.
