According to publisher tinyBuild‬, Hellpoint is a dark and challenging action role-playing game (ARPG) set in an atmospheric universe where the line between science and occultism is blurred.

Once a pinnacle of human achievement, the Irid Novo space station has fallen. Its ruins are now overrun by cruel interdimensional entities acting as puppets of the malevolent Cosmic Gods. You have been created by the Author, organically printed on Irid Novo, and sent on a mission to find out the unholy series of events that led to the catastrophic incident known as the Merge.

Just like FromSoftware's games, Irid Novo is a massive interconnected world full of hidden passages and secrets. However, the focus here is more on science fiction than what we've seen in other ARPGs in the genre.

Hellpoint is available for digital preorder on Xbox One for $35 at the moment, and it features Xbox One X upgrades. The Microsoft Store doesn't tell you this, but a spokesperson for tinyBuild confirmed that it ran at 1440p resolution on Xbox One X and PlayStation 4 Pro. While we would've liked to see a greater resolution jump, especially on Microsoft's machine, it should look crisper than what you get on base consoles.
