Is Helldivers 2 coming to Xbox Game Pass

No, Helldivers 2 is not on Xbox Game Pass at launch. As it’s not on Xbox Series X|S and the Xbox One, you’ll have to resort to PlayStation 5 and PC to try the latest game from Arrowhead Games. As for PC players, there’s a good chance it won’t arrive on PC Game Pass as Helldivers 2 is published by PlayStation. Other games have arrived on Microsoft’s subscription service despite that so it’s not impossible. But the odds are pretty slim.

The game already appears to be a smash hit, with Helldivers 2 prominently sitting on Steam’s best-selling charts, even above the pricier Steam Deck. With free post-launch story updates on the way, expect a good amount of monster-slaying with friends.

It might arrive on PS+ (PlayStation Plus), Sony’s subscription service, later down the road though. The original went free for PS4, PS3, and PS Vita players back in February 2016. And that covers Helldivers 2 on the subscription service. For more on the game, check if Helldivers 2 has single-player support. We’ve also got a guide on crossplay between different platforms.
