Today, developer Zero Gravity Games announced that its first person multiplayer space survival game, Hellion, is set to finally launch on PC, via Steam Early Access, on February 24, 2017.
Originally supposed to launch sometime in January, the game was slightly delayed earlier this month. At the time we didn’t know how long or serious the delay would be, but now we do know, and it’s only a slight push back.
Never heard of Hellion, but want to know more? No problem — here’s an overview:
Hellion is the fusion of survival and space simulation genres that pits players against the deadly environment and one another. Survive the hard vacuum of space, extreme temperatures, deadly radiation and scavenge for basic resources like air, water, food and other items necessary for survival. But keep in mind, you are not the only one out there. There are others, but will they help, or will they throw you to the void without a second thought? Remember, no matter how brutal space may seem, it cannot hold a candle to man.
Zero Gravity Games accompanied the announcement with the following statement thanking fans and laying out its goals:
We would like to thank you all once more for the support you’ve shown, especially during the last couple of months that have given rise to a gaming community consisting of true sci-fi fans, hard-core survival players and space adventurers.
Our goal is to create the best possible player experience. But we are also looking forward to working together with an active and creative gaming community. We believe it is right to say that Hellion’s true development will start only once all of you have joined us in Early Access. We will be open to your suggestions, so feel free to share your thoughts and ideas on our communication channels.
A price point was not divulged. But a new trailer was — you can check it out below:
