Helldivers 2 has hit the shelves. Team up with your friends and bring Managed Democracy to the entire universe.

Is Helldivers 2 on Xbox Game Pass?

We have some bad news for Xbox Game Pass subscribers, Helldivers 2 will not be playable on their favorite subscription service. Helldivers 2 is PlayStation exclusive, and will not be available on Xbox consoles or their monthly Game Pass. This game is published by Sony, and since Sony and Microsoft do not see eye to eye, it is almost impossible it will appear on Microsoft’s console or subscription service. For now, Helldivers 2 is only playable on PlayStation and PC.

PS5 Helldivers 2
  • Enlist in the Helldivers and join the fight for freedom across a hostile galaxy in a fast, frantic, and ferocious third-person shooter.
  • Become a Legend – You will be assembled into squads of up to four Helldivers and assigned strategic missions. Watch each other’s back – friendly fire is an unfortunate certainty of war, but victory without teamwork is impossible.
  • Loadouts – Rain down freedom from above, sneak through enemy territory, or grit your teeth and charge head-first into the jaws of combat. How you deliver liberty is your choice; you’ll have access to a wide array of explosive firepower, life-saving armour and battle-changing stratagems… the jewel in every Helldiver’s arsenal.
  • Requisition – Super Earth recognises your hard work with valuable Requisition. Use it to access different rewards that benefit you, your squad, your destroyer ship and our overall war effort.
  • Threats – Everything on every planet wants you dead. That’s what we’re dealing with. Each enemy has distinct and unpredictable characteristics, tactics, and behaviour – but they all fight ferociously and without fear or morality.

Will It Be on PC Game Pass?

Sadly, we doubt that Helldivers 2 will be on PC Game Pass. The game is available on PC, but it will not be on PC Game Pass and will be Steam exclusive. The first installment was not available on other PC gaming platforms, like Epic Games Store, so we expect that the sequel will follow suit. On the other hand, stranger things have happened, and things may change in the future. But, for now, it’s safe to say that Helldivers 2 will only be playable on PlayStation 5 and PC via Steam.
