What is Hellpoint?

If you haven't heard of Hellpoint, you're missing out on a great Action RPG with Soulslike elements. You're stuck on a space station orbiting a black hole, and there are lots of scary monsters who are happy to eat you if you make a mistake.

 
 

Thankfully, you get all sorts of cool powers to help you out. The space station's position in the black hole's orbit can provide various special effects and some of these can change the behavior of enemies or open secret doors.

If you get this game on the Hellpoint release date, though, you should expect a mighty challenge: Hellpoint is not for the faint of heart — check out our Hellpoint preview to see how hard this game can get!

When is the Hellpoint Release Date?

The Hellpoint release date is July 30, 2020, for most platforms. The game is coming to PC and all major consoles, but that doesn't mean that it's going to release at the same time—there may be a different Hellpoint release date depending on your particular platform.

When is the Hellpoint PC Release Date?

The Hellpoint PC release date is July 30, 2020. You'll be able to play this upcoming ARPG on PC, Mac, and Linux simultaneously at launch; all three operating sytems have the same system requirements.

 

When is the Hellpoint PS4 Release Date?

We don't know the Hellpoint PS4 release date just yet. The Hellpoint website lists the Playstation 4 as "Coming Soon." Consideering that the Hellpoint release date has already been announced for PC and Xbox One, it's likely that the PS4 launch will be sometime after July 30, 2020.

When is the Hellpoint Xbox One Release Date?

The Hellpoint Xbox One release date is July 29, 2020, at 8 p.m. EDT. Although this game is scheduled for a July 30, 2020 release date, Xbox One gamers will be able to play it just a few hours earlier if they don't mind staying up late that night.

When is the Hellpoint Nintendo Switch Release Date?

We don't know the Hellpoint Nintendo Switch release date just yet. As with the PlayStation 4, the Nintendo Switch version of Hellpoint is listed as "Coming Soon." This implies that we are likely to see a Hellpoint Nintendo Switch version arrive sometime after the July 30 release date announced for PC and Xbox One.

Will there be Hellpoint DLC?

The developers hope to make some DLC, but only if the game sells enough copies.

 

"Oh yes, we’re only getting started," enthused Cradle Games' Co-Founder and Creative Director Mathieu Boudreau in an interview with SegmentNext. "Already, the demo that you’ll be able to play soon is a standalone story with a different main character. The business reality though is that we will need to show great sales numbers to really unravel our master plan of the future. It would definitely be complete expansion packs to make you want to replay the whole game differently. Fingers crossed!"

Everything We Know About Hellpoint Release Date multiplayer

Is Hellpoint Multiplayer?

If you're hoping for Hellpoint multiplayer, there's good news: there will be both PVE and PVP multiplayer! Although this game will certainly make for a fine single-player experience, players will also be able to have a friend jump into the game.

Is there Hellpoint Online Multiplayer?

Yes, there is online multiplayer for Hellpoint — you won't need a friend to play with you on the same television screen. If your buddy lives far away, he'll be able to jump into your game without too much difficulty.

Is Hellpoint Co-Op?

Yes, Hellpoint has online co-op—you'll be able to join your friend's game and play together! The only thing better than playing a spooky, challenging game like Hellpoint is playing it a friend.

Is there Hellpoint Local Co-Op?

Hellpoint will have split-screen multiplayer right out of the box. While online multiplayer is certainly an option, you'll also have the ability to hook up a second controller to the same console and play with a friend in the same room.

Is there Hellpoint PVP?

Yes, there is Hellpoint PVP. One of the developers on Reddit detailed the system in a reply to a question.

How does Hellpoint PVP work?

PvP will work in one of two ways:

  1. You send your friend\foe a match code or share it online, a person enters that code, joins, states their hostile (not friendly) intentions, and you battle it out.
  2. You leave a mark on a wall while playing Hellpoint in single player, someone notices that mark in their single-player campaign, joins, you battle it out.

Everything We Know About Hellpoint Release Date beta

Is There a Hellpoint Beta?

As far as we know, there is no public Hellpoint Beta. However, the developers planned on running a technical test with very few people. The weeks leading up to the Hellpoint release date have not made any explicity announcements for a beta, so I don't think we should expect to see one for this game.

Is there a Hellpoint Demo?

There is not a Hellpoint demo, but there is a special standalone chapter that you can play that will more or less serve as a demo.

Where can you get the Hellpoint demo?

Unfortunately, this demo is only available on Steam right now. If you're planning to play a Hellpoint console edition, you're going to have to wait!

I've had a controller in my hand since I was 4 and I haven't stopped gaming since. CCGs, Tabletop Games, Pen & Paper RPGs - I've tried a whole bunch of stuff over the years and I'm always looking to try more!
