Helldivers 2 was finally released after almost a decade of wait and it packs more action than ever before. If you are wondering whether the developers are going to expand on the story, here’s all about Helldrivers 2 getting DLC.

Focusing on third-person combat all while delivering the same feel as the original, Arrowhead’s Helldivers 2 is a great sequel that was well received by many players around the world.

The game is available on both PlayStation 5 and PC and features enemies in the form of factions that you need to take down. With many in the community having already progressed further into the campaign, you might now be wondering about future expansion packs.

Here’s whether Helldivers 2 is set to receive DLC content after its release.

Helldivers 2 devs confirm free DLC content

Helldivers 2 will receive post-launch content, and any DLC that brings new enemies, objectives, and biomes to the game will arrive for free, according to the devs.

Arrowhead Game Studios’ Chief Executive Visionary of Creative & Business Strategy Johan Pilestedt confirmed that the devs are “constantly going to add more stuff to the game!”

When it comes to this post-launch DLC content that is set to extend the Helldivers 2 experience, the Reddit post of a Discord conversation below explained that this type of content for the game is “always going to be free.”

If you were worried that Helldivers 2 might require you to purchase DLC as a live service game to acquire more objectives and experiences can breathe a sigh of relief.

In addition, Helldivers 2 players have access to the Warbonds system, which is the game’s spin on the Battle Pass concept. All of the unlockables from Warbonds can be acquired for free in-game by sinking hours into the game and earning Super Credits.

You can also purchase Super Credits at a cost, but they’re quite simple to collect in-game. Essentially, Warbonds is not a pay-to-win system.
