After not hearing much from Cradle Games and tinyBuild on Hellpoint, they’ve now announced the first major expansion Hellpoint: Blue Sun releases on July 12th. This is along with console next-gen stuff.
For those who haven’t seen it before, Hellpoint is the debut title from Cradle Games and it’s set in a surreal and dark science-fantasy future, mankind and aliens alike seek to harness the power of the soul, and to wrest power away from the cosmic gods of old. Something like that anyway. It’s a souls-like action-RPG in space.
This Blue Sun DLC will show the complete story of Irid Novo, at least for those who can understand much of it. The DLC brings with it:
- Travel to the Blue Sun parallel dimension to experience a new layer of story that reveals the one true cause of the Merge cataclysm.
- Three new sprawling areas explore and die in, expanding the interconnected level design.
- A ton of new armors, characters and bosses
- New “contract” system
- Dual wield weapons
- A variety of quality-of-life improvements designed alongside the Hellpoint player community, like stat respec and inventory management.
