Arrowhead Game Studios has announced a brand new Premium Warbond that is set to come to Helldivers 2 on April 11th. So far, there have been three Warbonds released in the game which act as Battle Passes for the game, granting players exclusive weapons, armor, and items. All players gained access to a free one for buying the game, and one was granted to Deluxe Edition players. Since then, one more paid-for Premium Warbond has been released.

The new Helldivers 2 Premium Warbond was announced via a PlayStation blog post and comes just days after the 01.000.200 major update, as well as during the current Major Order which could see the Automatons eradicated once and for all. This new Warbond is codenamed Democratic Detonation, it is unclear whether this will be the final name used for the Battle Pass or whether it will be announced at a later date. In addition to weapons and armor, we can expect to see other items included such as Super Credits, Player Cards, and more. Based on previous Premium Warbonds, we can expect the Democratic Detonation Warbond to cost 1,000 Super Credits, which can either be purchased or collected during missions.
