Hellpoint: 7 Things You Need to Know About the Upcoming Sci-fi game
Hellpoint is an upcoming sci-fi action role-playing game developed by Cradle Games and published by TinyBuild Games. It is set up in a world where there is a very small line between science and occultism. The game is somewhat similar to Souls (action role-playing game developed by FromSoftware. Inc and published by BANDAI NAMCO Entertainment).
It’s not the first time that a game is getting compared to Souls. Games like Nioh, Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice, and Bloodborne also have gameplay quite similar to Dark Souls. But despite having gameplay similar to souls, it is not an exact copy of the game.
Here are the things that you need to know about the upcoming game.
1. The game is set in outer space
The first thing that separates the game from Dark Souls is that it is set in outer space. In the gameplay, we can see The Spawn (main character of the game) moving and breathing in outer space. Inside the game, you can see the cosmos (Covered in the space dust). When you go through the gameplay, it appears that time has stopped in Hellpoint, and you can’t see anything moving besides Spawn. Amazing, right?
2. Developers wanted to make it look similar to Souls
This is one of the most interesting things about Hellpoint. The developers of Hellpoint have intentionally created it somewhat similar to Souls. It’s like playing Dark souls in outer space. Many elements of the game like Stamina bar, movements of characters, gameplay, and combat system, are similar to Dark Souls. After going through all the gameplay videos over the internet, we can say that Hellpoint is like Dark souls set up in the outer space of a different universe.
3. Online and Local Co-Op
The upcoming game has both local and online co-op in it. This is another excellent feature that is present in Dark Souls, which the developers of Hellpoint have copied. However, Local co-op feature has not been part of the Dark soul’s series. It is really a great move by the developers to ensure that the game does not look completely similar to Dark Souls.
4. Setup in a broken space station
The game is set up in a broken space station located on “Irid Novo.” When you play the game, you find yourself stuck in this broken space station as the only person left alive who is fighting for his survival against aliens who are on the mission to cleanse the entire space colony by killing all the people. But can Spawn defeat them and establish the peace again in the space colony? Well, that something that can be found out only by playing the game when it is released.
5. Fight against hostile extraterrestrials
The space station in which you get stuck is full of deadly and hostile extraterrestrials. These extraterrestrials are very powerful and have lots of great powers that make them superior in comparison with Spawn (Protagonist of the game). Additionally, some enemies can transport themselves and attack you when you don’t expect them to attack, which makes the combat more exciting and complicated.
6. It’s going to be released for all the major gaming platforms
Another great thing about the Hellpoint is that it will be available for all the major gaming consoles and platforms. The game is expected to be released for all the major gaming consoles or platforms like PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, Linux, Windows, and Mac OS. So, if you own any of these, then you are in luck.
7. Release date and price
The game was initially expected to be released on 16 April 2020. But now it is going to be released on 30 July 2020. The game has also been released for pre-booking now. However, the prices of the game have not yet been declared by the company. Therefore, we have to wait until 30 July 2020 to know the price of the game.
