Magicka devs launching Helldivers for PS3, PS4 and PS Vita

Arrowhead Studios, the developer behind Magicka, will release a new game called Helldivers for  exclusively PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4 and PlayStation Vita, Sony announced at its Gamescom 2013 press conference.

Helldivers is set in a dystopian future where players must protect "Super Earth," a world where the lines between democracy and military and government rule are blurred. The Helldivers are a special squad assembled to defend against invaders.

The game is a cooperative squad-based shooter and will feature cross-platform play. The trailer showed four characters making their way through a strange, rocky area while blasting away enemies. Helldivers will support two-to-four players with local and on-line co-op. It will also include mechanics such as friendly fire, and players must communicate in order to achieve their goals.

You can watch the trailer below. Helldivers is slated for launch in 2014.
