Hellpoint coming to PS5 and Xbox Series X/S

An enhanced version of Souls-like game Hellpoint is set to be released for the PS5 and Xbox Series X/S next year.

Hellpoint is described as a dark sci-fi game, and the enhanced version will include the ability to select between two visual options, including a performance option, allowing for Dynamic 4K at 60FPS, as well as a performance option for native 4k at 30FPS. It will also benefit from faster loading times.

In the meantime, existing owners of the game will be able to play Hellpoint via the backwards compatibility feature of the next generation consoles, which will also allow the game to run better with an ‘unlock framerate’ option being added. As for the proper next generation version, this will be offered as a free update for owners of previous generation versions.

Hellpoint takes place on a derelict space station, and the combat system is described as unforgiving, which of course is good reason for it being categorised as a Souls-like game. Every time you die, which I’m assuming will be many times for many, the world will slightly evolve. There’s also a co-op option.

Hellpoint was originally released in July.
