Helldivers offers Cross-Play on PS4, PS3 and PS Vita, launching in March

Suddenly, Helldivers from Arrowhead Game Studios has flashed on my radar in a huge way. It’s not that the game looks spectacular in any one regard, it’s that Helldivers offers three things I want to see in a game right now.

First, this is a Cross-Play, Cross-Buy, Cross-Save multiplayer title for the PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3 and PS Vita. That means, you can buy it once and own it for all three devices, you can share saves between those devices and, this is the big one, you can play with anyone on any device at the same time.

That means I’ll be able to play Helldivers on my PS4 with a friend playing it on their PS Vita or PS3 at the same time. Nice.

It also doesn’t hurt the trailer features some compelling top-down gunplay combat, tons of alien squashing action (think, perhaps, Starship Troopers) and a nice sense of humor.

Helldivers is set to sell on March 3, 2015. It has my attention, and it should have yours too.
