Helldivers 2 Beats Palworld To Become Best-Selling Steam Game

PlayStation's First Day-One PC Launch Doing Well!

Story Highlights
  • Helldivers 2 is officially the best-selling game on Steam before launch.
  • It is also the most pre-ordered game on PlayStation in the US and other regions.
  • PlayStation’s first day-one launch on PC is showing a lot of promise.

PlayStation’s first live-service shooter title in many years is off to a great start. Helldivers 2 is currently the number one best-selling game on Steam. It has overtaken the likes of Palworld and Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3.

Why it matters: PlayStation has lacked a proper multiplayer title for ages. Last year, live-service games dominated the competition, encouraging Sony to experiment with the genre.

Helldivers 2 is currently on pre-orders and will be out later today. It has not only managed to capture a wide range of PC audiences but is also the number one most pre-ordered game on PlayStation 5 in almost all regions.

While the game still falls behind free-to-play titles like Counter-Strike 2, this reception is much better than most anticipated. It may also encourage PlayStation to pursue more day-one releases on PC moving forward.

From early previews, Helldivers 2 seems to deliver a promising experience. As the sequel to one of the more underrated shooter IPs on PlayStation, the game has gathered quite the following.

However, official reviews are yet to be revealed, so we will have to wait and see how the title performs.

If you are looking to buy it on Steam, know that the system requirements are quite hefty, especially if you want to play on higher resolutions. For a decent experience at 4K, you’ll need a Ryzen 7 5800X3D and a GeForce RTX RTX 4070 Ti.

With the game launching in just a few hours, it will be interesting to see how it performs. Considering Helldivers 2 has seen such a massive amount of pre-orders on Steam, we are expecting a high number of concurrent players, with the weekend also around the corner. 

Meanwhile, many players will likely wait for reviews before jumping in. Whatever the case may be, Helldivers 2 is shaping up to be a great first step into the world of live service gaming for PlayStation.
