'Hollowpoint' (ALL) Will Make Its Debut At EGX Rezzed Next Month

Hollowpoint puts players in charge of secretive Organizations of corporate mercenaries, taking on missions for pay and prestige alongside three other players in online co-op.

Hollowpoint takes place in a world decimated by natural disasters and global conflict, with just a batch of wealthy Mega-Corps holding the strings of power, each one vying to bring their influence to bear in one continent or another.

But the battle between them is fought at arm’s length: firing their weapons in this never ending struggle are a band of mercenaries - or Hollowpoints - taking the cash and infiltrating their way through base after base, shaping the world around them with a mixture of stealth and sheer brute force. Welcome to the 23rd century. Welcome to the world of Hollowpoint.

First unveiled back at E3 in 2014, the development journey behind Hollowpoint has seen duties passed over from publisher Paradox Interactive to Yorkshire-based studio Red Kite Games, whom have now acquired the IP.

The co-op focused action epic - which takes an intuitive 2.5D view that adapts to your surroundings - will be Red Kite’s first in-house IP, with the studio having made its name helping on series such as Call of Duty, God of War, and DiRT, amongst others.

Yorkshire-based studio Red Kite Games is excited to announce dystopian shooter Hollowpoint will make its playable debut at EGX Rezzed in London, from Friday 13th April through Sunday 15th April.

Gamers will get a first chance to experience the studio’s vision of life in the 23rd century, with EGX Rezzed in London’s Tobacco Dock serving as the first venue the game will be playable for the public.

“There’s always something special about getting to see gamers take on something you’ve been working so hard on for the first time,” offers Simon Iwaniszak, Managing Director at Red Kite Games. “EGX Rezzed is such a great event for gamers who are fans of quality games - Hollowpoint is going to be in very good company, and it’s going to be a big moment for us seeing gamers take on Hollowpoint’s co-op focused action.”

Hollowpoint’s world is built around action packed combat encounters, all taking place in procedurally generated levels that, in the most dramatic and deadly missions, culminate with a brilliantly intense boss battle.

Not only do the missions that you embark upon impact the power of the different Mega-Corps within this global struggle, but your style of attack and relative relationships with the different organizations can influence the types of assignments sent your way. It’s a dynamic world that can see you bolstering a CEO’s power base in one contract before taking them out under the auspices of a rival in the next.

Red Kite Games was founded in 2012, with Simon Iwaniszak having started his career at Rockstar Games where he brought his talent to the likes of Grand Theft Auto: Chinatown Wars, Red Dead Redemption, and L.A. Noire.
