Unfortunately there isn’t, Neither developer Arrowhead Game Studios nor publisher Sony has announced any kind of early access trial, paid or otherwise. It’s not even exclusive to pre-orders or any Hell diver 2special edition of. So unless you’re interested in getting the extra armor set, you’re best off saving your money for the standard version of the game. At the time of writing, there is also no free demo available.

At least, if you’ve pre-ordered, you really don’t have much time left to wait Hell diver 2 for launch, expected to arrive on date February 8 for PlayStation 5 and PC. Cross-play will also be available at launch, so you and your friends can participate no matter which platform you download the game on.

It’s a shame you can’t try before you buy options for Hell diver 2. A free demo or early access period could win some new fans, though that’s still possible if first impressions prove extremely positive. Fingers crossed, the opposite does not happen.
