SEATTLE, July 12th – Publisher tinyBuild and developers Cradle Games are unleashing a fresh hell upon the cursed space station of Irid Novo. Out now on all platforms, the Blue Sun DLC expands cult hit action-RPG Hellpoint with new areas to explore, bosses to battle, and more mysteries to unravel as science and ancient magic intertwine yet again.
Accompanying the new DLC, a native PlayStation 5 version of Hellpoint is now available, with an Xbox Series X/S version coming July 26th. Previously available through backwards compatibility, these enhanced new versions of the game bring new clarity and faster than ever with native SSD support. Experience the horror anew or for the first time, now at a blood-slick 60fps and running at razor sharp 4k resolution.
Praised by critics and fans, Hellpoint was the debut title from indie studio Cradle Games. A Souls-inspired action-RPG set in a universe where the line between science and magic has blurred to nothingness. In this dark universe, humanity and aliens are unraveling the power of the soul itself in unholy experiments to steal the power of ancient cosmic gods.
Strike a deal with the elder god Asmodeus and descend into the realm of the Blue Sun. A parallel dimension hiding the city’s deepest secrets, including the truth behind the cataclysm known as the Merge. Explore three new massive and interconnected zones, arm yourself with powerful new two-handed weapons, hunt horrifying new bosses for their equipment and gorge yourself on a bounty of respecs and other improvements. Reforge yourself as the mightiest Spawn of all.
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: Hellpoint offers a full, uninterrupted online co-op story experience with shared loot drops.
