Hellpoint Trailer (Nintendo Switch)
Hellpoint is a dark and challenging action RPG set in an atmospheric sci-fi universe where the line between science and the occult is blurred.
Once a pinnacle of human achievement, the Irid Novo space station has fallen. Its ruins are now invaded by cruel interdimensional entities that act as puppets for the malevolent Cosmic Gods.
You have been created by the Author, organically imprinted on Irid Novo, and sent on a mission to uncover the series of unholy events that led to the catastrophic incident known as the Fusion.
Irid Novo is a huge interconnected world full of mysteries, hidden passages and secrets within secrets, all for you to explore in any order you wish. More dread and chills await you as you venture into the darkest corner of this abandoned colony.
Dozens of ranged and melee weapons and armor pieces to suit your play style. Each weapon has unique special abilities that are unlocked 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 deep lore and a goosebump-inducing soundtrack.
The space station orbits in real time around an ominous black hole that unleashes various dynamic events such as boss appearances, horde raids, as well as modified enemy stats and positions.
If you have difficulties, you can join forces with someone else both locally and online. The entire game can be completed uninterrupted in cooperative mode. Loot is shared and local player two’s experience is saved and not diluted.
