We’ve had Dark Souls with fantasy demon things, and then sci-fi Dark Souls in the shape of The Surge, and by the looks of it we now have Dark Souls fantasy demon things in a sci-fi setting.
Hellpoint has been announced for PS4, Xbox One, Switch and PC and it has a rather good trailer which uses the Hans Zimmer ‘brrraammm’ technique to build tension.
Here’s some blurb from the Steam page of the game.
Hellpoint is a dark sci fi action RPG set in the aftermath of a massive quantum cataclysm. Every living being quickly lost their mind as their memories and bodies were merged with alternate versions of themselves from parallel universes. The accident also attracted entities of immense power that should have been left alone, in the depth of other dimensions.
You play as a mysterious nameless character whose intentions are entirely determined by your choices. You wake up in the derelict Irid Novo space station, in orbit around a super-massive black hole. In the game, the space station orbits in real time around the ominous black hole. Its position in the sky directly impacts the sanity of the inhabitants of the station. The singularity is doing more than simply distorting the fabric of space and time; based on the time of the orbit, enemies in the levels get crazier or struck by fear, unknown entities roam the corridors and dozens of other mysterious events can occur.
You may notice right at the end of trailer it shows that the game has split screen co-op, and it will be released next year. Brrraammm!
