Hellpoint, the Souls-like sci-fi RPG, gets release date, new trailer

Dark Souls meets Dead Space in this new dark sci-fi RPG coming to PC, Xbox One, PS4, and Switch on April 16.

Developer Cradle Games and publisher tinyBuild are excited to announce that the Kickstarter-backed RPG Hellpoint is scheduled for simultaneous release on PC (Win, Mac, Linux), PS4, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch on April 16. Watch the release date trailer here:

Hellpoint is an intense, dark sci-fi RPG set on a derelict space station orbiting an ominous supermassive black hole. Taking inspiration from games like Dark Souls and Dead Space and movies like Event Horizon and Hellraiser, Hellpoint is doubling down on co-op multiplayer (with both split-screen and online support) while immersing players in a twisted narrative involving Cosmic Gods, quantum physics, and extinct space civilizations.

The game is set 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 gone horribly wrong. What happens next will be solely determined by your choices.

Key Features:

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.
Split-screen support: The full Hellpoint experience is available in jump-in/jump-out split-screen multiplayer on PC, PS4, and Xbox One.

Gaming since the Atari 2600, I enjoy the weirdness in games counting Densha De Go and RC De Go as my favourite titles of all time. I prefer gaming of old where buying games from a shop was a thing, Being social in person was a thing. Join me as I attempt to adapt to this new digital age!
