The developers have taken to the official Steam listing of Helldivers 2 as well, coming forth with a related announcement that goes more in-depth on Warbonds, their working mechanism, and the in-game store that users will be spending some time on, sifting through various items of potential interest. Game Director Sagar Beroshi expands on the topic with the following, 

‘We’re trying to model a unique type of live service with the Warbonds. They’re like getting a treasure chest full of toys,’ Sagar says. And he’s right: the Warbonds are your ticket to fighting the Galactic War in style with lots of unlockable gear, but they reflect the changing tides of war on Super Earth as well. ‘It’s been a century since the last game, and Super Earth is starting to get its military-industrial complex churning again. And to whom would it be better to offer gear than the Helldivers?’ The items available will each have unique features that can offer a variety of tactics for play,” reads the announcement by the devs. 

There are three different armor sets, an array of primary weapons, and novel capes that the Warbond: Steeled Veterans trailer sheds light on, and each of these is part of the Super Citizen Edition of Helldivers 2 that can be bought for $59.99 on the PlayStore Store for the PlayStation 5. Oh, and for those who didn’t get it yet, Warbonds are actually Battle Passes in Helldivers 2. You tick off objectives from there and reap their rewards.
