Cradle Games and tinyBuild have finally unveiled the release date for their upcoming, and rather dark, sci-fi RPG Hellpoint. Better yet, there’s not long to wait as it’ll be arriving on Xbox One, PlayStation 4, Nintendo Switch and PC this month.
It’s official, the Souls-like Hellpoint is set for a 30th July launch on all of the aforementioned platforms at once. The game itself takes place in the aftermath of a massive quantum cataclysm called the Merge. You wake up on board the Irid Novo space station, a beacon of galactic cooperation and scientific exploration that’s unfortunately gone horribly wrong. What happens next will be solely determined by your choices as you search for answers about the goings on.
- Souls-like gameplay in a unique setting: Explore the derelict space station of Irid Novo and face bizarre enemies with a tight and unforgiving combat system.
- Occult space story: Blending science and fantasy, the intensely atmospheric dark sci-fi setting will keep you searching for answers.
- Dynamic World: The Quantic System acts as a dungeon master, slightly transforming the game world every time you die and triggering events as the station revolves around the black hole.
- Jump-in co-op and PvP multiplayer: Ask a friend to press Start to join a couch co-op session or call for assistance online. Hellpoint offers a full, uninterrupted co-op story with shared loot drops.
And in relation to the online and local co-op feature, there’s also a brand new Hellpoint trailer now available to watch which aims to highlight this aspect.
