Those who pre-order Helldivers 2, regardless of the edition, will receive three bonus armor sets:

  • TR-7 Ambassador of the Brand
  • TR-9 Cavalier of Democracy
  • TR-62 Knight

It’s quite standard these days to see exclusive cosmetic options as pre-order bonuses. If you’re planning to get Helldivers 2 anyway, it’s a good way to acquire some exclusive gear.If you’re unsure, I recommend taking a closer look at the three armor sets before making a decision.

What’s in the Helldivers 2 Super Citizen Edition?

Aside from its Standard Edition, which is just a regular copy of the base game, Helldivers 2 offers one other version. The Super Citizen Edition is Arrowhead Game Studio’s equivalent to a Deluxe Edition, and it includes a lot of extras on top of any pre-order bonuses that you might have earned from buying the game early:

  • ‘DP-53 Savior of the Free’ Armor Set
  • ‘Will of the People’ Cape
  • ‘MP-98 Knight’ Weapon
  • Super Citizen Status
  • Stratagem Hero Ship Game
  • ‘AR-23E Liberator Explosive’ Weapon
  • ‘SA-32 Dynamo’ Armor Set
  • ‘Super Person’ Emote
  • And more in-game content yet to be confirmed.

The last four items on the list are all part of the Steeled Veterans Premium Warbond. Although the developers mention that this Premium Warbond comes with much more, they do not provide specifics. Given that the game doesn’t have a campaign, it’s hard to imagine rewards that aren’t weapons or armor sets.

The Standard Edition of the game will cost $39.99, while the Super Citizen Edition is priced at $59.99. Although not necessarily cheap, the Super Citizen Edition is still cheaper than your standard AAA game, and certainly more affordable than most Deluxe Editions we’ve seen recently.
