Hellpoint Launches April 16th

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.

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 player-versus-player 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.

Huh, never heard of this, but it looks pretty cool. Catching Dark Souls/Dead Space/Doom/Dante's Inferno vibes, as the quote states. Yeah this is inspired by all the things I like, hopefully the gameplay is there as well.
I used to indecisive, but now I'm not so sure.

Go Against the Flow.

Damn multiplayer ruining everything. It has local at least.
Proud to be perma-banned 5 times on NeoGAF.

I was ready to ignore the stupid "Hello Neighbor" icon on the corner of the video cause they hit a lot of high notes. Then they had to go with the "Jump in Multiplayer". Data gathered since the dawn of random jump in Multiplayer (Diablo) shows the person jumping in is just going to kill you. It ruins the whole concept for me and loses a sale.

Where the fuck did this come from? Never heard a whisper of this game.

It looks cool, but we'll see how well it plays once the reviews come out.

Dark souls with a Doom aesthetic? Seems like a winner in theme at least...
