Originally set to release in April, Cradle Games has announced that they will reveal the new Hellpoint release date next week. To help tide potential players, they have also released a new batch of screenshots and artwork.
The new Hellpoint release date will be announced next week on July 2. We aren’t sure if we are expecting to see a new date trailer of some sort, but don’t be surprised if one drops the same day. Down below you’ll find some new screenshots and key artwork.
Hellpoint 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.
- 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.
The title will be releasing on PC (Steam), Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and the Nintendo Switch. If you don’t know what Hellpoint is, be sure to read up on our preview, which left a pretty positive impression. You can read that preview right here: Hellpoint Preview: Dark Souls Meets Dead Space. Alternatively there is also a Steam demo available to try.
