Helldivers 2 may not have the mass market cache that other first-party Sony properties like God of War, Spider-Man, The Last of Us, or others have, but the co-op third-person shooter is still a game that many have been looking forward to for a while now, and the excitement that it has generated is being reflected in its players numbers instantly upon launch. 

Helldivers 2 became available on PC and PS5 roughly three hours ago, and it has started strong. As per SteamDB, at the time of writing, it has hit a peak of 57,110 players- and that number is still rising, so this may very well already be outdated by the time you’re reading this report.

That impressive number means Helldivers 2 is also the third-best launch on Steam for a PlayStation Studios game to date, surpassing the likes of Horizon Zero Dawn, The Last of Us Part 1, Days Gone, and Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales. It currently ranks only behind God of War (peak of 73,529 concurrent users) and Marvel’s Spider-Man Remastered (peak of 66,436 concurrent users). You can check out a ranking of all PlayStation Studios PC launches below. 

Developer Arrowhead Game Studios has confirmed that it intends to release plenty of post-launch content for Helldivers 2, including new biomes, enemies, objectives, and more, all of which will be free. On top of that, free story updates are also planned

Helldivers 2 is available on PS5 and PC.
