'Hellpoint' (ALL) Gets Nintendo Switch Date - Trailer

by Rainier on Jan. 12, 2021 @ 11:16 a.m. PST

Hellpoint is a dark sci-fi action RPG set in the aftermath of a massive quantic cataclysm.

Hellpoint is an intense, dark sci-fi RPG set on a derelict space station orbiting an ominous supermassive black hole. Taking inspiration from games like Dark Souls and Dead Space and movies like Event Horizon and Hellraiser, Hellpoint is doubling down on co-op multiplayer (with both split-screen and online support) while immersing players in a twisted narrative involving Cosmic Gods, quantum physics, and extinct space civilizations.

The game 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.

Publisher tinyBuild, in cooperation with Merge Games, confirmed that Hellpoint will be released digitally for Nintendo Switch on February 25 followed by a physical release on February 26th.

Both versions will feature all post-release features and improvements and will retail for $34.99 / €34.99 / £29.99.

In addition, a physical collector’s edition for Nintendo Switch is available for pre-order from Signature Edition Games.

While Hellpoint is coming to PS5 and Xbox Series X|S, a next-gen backwards compatibility patch was released in December 2020, adding an optional 60 FPS mode for PS5 and Xbox Series X. 

Key Features:

  • 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.
  • Split-screen support: The full Hellpoint experience is available in jump-in/jump-out split-screen multiplayer on PC, PS4, and Xbox One.

Currently available for PS4, Xbox One and PC, Hellpoint is coming to Nintendo Switch on Feb. 25, 2021, followed by PS5 and Xbox Series X|S later in 2021.
