Sci-fi RPG Hellpoint, originally scheduled to launch on PC and consoles this April, has been delayed, says developer Cradle Games.
“In light of the unprecedented events facing the world, we have been forced to postpone the launch of the game,” says Creative Director Matt Boudreau. “We plan to use the additional development time not just for polishing, but also to address the feedback we’ve gathered and make Hellpoint an even better gaming experience for everybody! The feedback of the community had such enthusiasm and energy.”
Publisher tinyBuild says the game is scheduled for release by the end of Q2 2020. Cradle Games are planning to use the extra development time to incorporate all the feedback they have received from players of the recently released free chapter, The Thespian Feast.
Cradle Games and tinyBuild have also released a new short teaser trailer, focused on the game’s 3D-printed protagonist, the artificial human known as The Spawn.
- 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.
