Concord’s Price Has Been Revealed Thanks To The Aussie PlayStation Store

Not bad, good price.

It seems as though PlayStation was happy with the way Arrowhead’s hugely-popular Helldivers 2 was priced in the market, because it’s next big upcoming multiplayer shooter, Concord, is following suit.

First revealed via the Australian PlayStation Store of all places, the game is priced identically to Helldivers 2 with a $59.95 digital standard edition and a $94.95 Digital Deluxe Edition.

The digital deluxe version of the game will come with 16 character skins, and up to three days early access to the game which officially launches on August 24th for PS5 and PC, while pre-orders in general earn a “Monarch Pack” DLC and early beta access for a group of up to five players. It’s also been confirmed that new heroes, game modes, maps and worlds, and weekly cinematic vignettes will come at no additional cost.

It’s clear that this sort of pricing worked wonders for Arrowhead’s game when it launched earlier this year, making it much more accessible and better reflecting the scope of the game, though the actual fun of gameplay and novel community engagement around Helldivers 2 are arguably what helped it sell in the tens of millions of copies. The jury will obviously be out on Concord in that regard until it drops.

In case you missed the gameplay reveal trailer for the “multiplayer hero shooter,” Concord, which is in development at Firewalk Studios, during the latest PlayStation State of Play, you can see it below:
