Hellpoint Trailer

H  E  L  L  P  O  I  N  T
Hellpoint is a dark sci fi action RPG from Cradle Games. Set in the aftermath of a massive quantic cataclysm, you play as a mysterious ghoulish character whose intentions are entirely determined by your decisions. 

Hellpoint is a Souls-like game that takes place in a sci-fi setting aboard a supposedly deserted space station, and it's due for release on PlayStation 4 in 2019.

The experience is set to allow you to craft weapons, use unique skills, and forge your own path through the game which will have a knock-on effect on the types of enemies you encounter. The title will also include split-screen functionality, meaning you won't always have to go at it alone.
