Hellpoint is a Sci-Fi Soulslike action RPG, and its first DLC, Blue Sun, is now available. In addition, a native PS5 version of the title is finally here.
In Blue Sun, players will explore three new massive and interconnected zones as they venture into the realm of the elder god, Asmodeus. Arm yourself with fearsome two-handed weapons, and hunt the eldritch nightmares that haunt the deserted corridors of Irid Novo.
The native PS5 version of Hellpoint comes equipped with the usual suite of upgrades players have come to expect: 4K resolution, 60FPS and reduced load times.
Did you check out Hellpoint when it originally launched? Will you be picking up Blue Sun? Carefully manage your stamina in the comments section below.
Bought the DLC last night but didn't get the chance to play, going to dive into it tonight!
I'm nearly finished with Elden Ring, would this game be enough to scratch that itch?
@Throb combat wise not quite but exploration wise I'd say Hellpoint is the closest any Soulslike has got
@Throb Haven't played Elden Ring yet, but Hellpoint is the Soulslike that is most similar to the original Souls games out of all the clones - pretty much a sci-fi Souls. And it's quite a good one in my opinion.
It's made by a team of about 7 people though, so don't expect the production values of a AAA team. I think there's a demo (at least on Steam) so try it first.
@Throb It's janky af but it is a fun world to explore. The combat is decent, but nowhere near the polish of even the early Souls games. Go into it with the right expectations and you'll have a blast.
On PS5, go to gameplay and put it on “monitor refresh” for the best experience. “Unlocked” was adding weird visual artifacts and screen tearing yuck! Enjoying the game though… finally!
