Hellpoint Heads to PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X in 2021; Free Next-Gen Upgrade


Developer Cradle Games has announced sci-fi action-RPG Hellpoint will be heading to PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X.

As previously reported, the game is set on the abandoned space station Irid Novo. It has been overrun by horrific interdimensional beings, after a catastrophic cosmic event called The Merge.

The station orbits around a mysterious black hole in real-time, with the station’s position altering enemy behavior, and triggering unique events and boss encounters. The game also supports drop-in, drop-out co-op.

Hellpoint is available for Windows PC, Linux, Mac (all via GOGEpic Games Store, and Steam), PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and coming soon to Nintendo Switch. In addition, the new announcement confirms the game will launch in 2021 for PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X.

As with many other games that are spanning both console generations, those who own the game on PlayStation 4 or Xbox One can get a free upgrade to the next-gen equivalent. Cradle Games boasts the next-gen version of Hellpoint will support dynamic 4K resolution at 60 FPS in performance mode, or Native 4K resolution at 30 FPS in quality mode.

You can find a rundown of the game (via Steam) below:

Hellpoint is a dark and challenging action RPG set in a heavily atmospheric sci-fi universe where the line between science and occultism is blurred.

Once a pinnacle of human achievement, the Irid Novo space station has fallen. Its ruins are now overrun by cruel interdimensional entities acting as puppets of the malevolent Cosmic Gods.

You have been created by the Author, organically printed on Irid Novo and sent on a mission to find out the unholy series of events that led to the catastrophic incident known as the Merge.

  • Irid Novo is a massive interconnected world full of mysteries, hidden passages and secrets within secrets – all for you to explore in any order you like. More dread and shivers awaits you as you travel deeper into the darkest corner of this forsaken colony.
  • Dozens of melee and ranged weapons and armor pieces to suit your playstyle. Every weapon has unique special abilities that unlock the more you fight with them.
  • A fascinating new sci fi universe reminiscent of classic sci-fi movies, set in the aftermath of a massive quantum cataclysm and complete with a deep lore and goosebump inducing soundtrack.
  • The space station orbits in real time around an ominous black hole that triggers various dynamic events such as boss appearances, horde assaults as well as modified enemy stats and positions.
  • If you are struggling, ask a friend to press Start to join in a couch coop session, or call for assistance online. The entire game can be completed uninterrupted in coop. The loot is shared, and the experience of local player two is saved and not watered down.
