Zero Gravity was excited recently to announce that the countdown to their debut title, Hellion, has begun. This PC first-person multiplayer space survival game enters Steam Early Access on February 24, 2017, and pits you and others against the perils of desolate wastelands in the devastated paradise of humankind’s first interstellar colony.
You will awaken after a life long journey in a cryopod and proceed to set out on a journey exploring Hellion’s derelict spaceships and ruined outposts. You will need to strike a balance between survival and your attempt to discover what happened to this man-made-paradise-turned-graveyard of humanity’s hopes and dreams.
Marko Smiljanic, Creative Director at Zero Gravity, stated, “We are happy to announce that Hellion will be coming to Steam Early Access this February. This first phase of development allows us to gather feedback from our players so that we can implement the most desired features in the final release and turn Hellion into the ultimate first-person open world experience with realistic player communication, full Newtonian physics, and immersive storyline”.
The Early Access build will offer up hand-crafted content and procedurally generated elements to create a meaningful narrative combined with varied and replayable gameplay beyond player interaction. If you hope to survive, you will need to loot and fight for the limited life support resources, such as oxygen and food, as well as repair and fuel both your deteriorating space station and spaceship. If you expect to survive in the hostile environment and run bigger ships, you will need to, at least temporarily, cooperate with other players, but in the end, it’s every man for himself and betrayal can, at times, be the best strategy to survive.
What are your thoughts on the title thus far? Are you eager for the Early Access?
