Cradle Games and tinyBuild have shared that Hellpoint is coming to the PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X|S on July 12. The game will also be launching its expansion, Blue Sun, on the same date.

Hellpoint on PS5 and XS marks the first time that it will run at 60fps on consoles. These versions will allow players to choose between a Performance Mode that runs at a dynamic 4K resolution prioritizing 60fps or a Quality Mode that aims for native 4K resolution at the cost of running at 30fps instead.

The Blue Sun expansion to Hellpoint has players explore to new locations in Irid Novo as they discover the real cause behind the Merge. This DLC will feature new armor sets, two-handed weapons, quality-of-life enhancements to inventory management and the ability to respeccing stats.

Hellpoint is now available on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Switfch, and PC (Steam, Epic, GOG). It will release on PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X|S on July 12.

Check out the announcement below.

Publisher tinyBuild and developers Cradle Games are proud to announce that the dark sci-fi action/RPG Hellpoint will be making the leap to next-gen consoles (Xbox Series X & PlayStation 5) on July 12th, accompanied by the chilling, thrilling new DLC adventure, Blue Sun.

For the first time outside of a high-end PC, players will be able to take in the sights and sounds of the cursed space station of Irid Novo in pin-sharp 4K, running at a silky smooth 60 FPS on Xbox Series X and PlayStation 5. Loading times will also be drastically decreased.

Launching alongside the next-gen update is the first DLC expansion for Hellpoint—Blue Sun—announced in August 2021. In this new adventure, the Spawn will delve into strange, never-before-seen locations within Irid Novo, behold the influence of the cosmic gods and discover the true cause of the Merge cataclysm.

For the uninitiated, Hellpoint was the debut game by independent studio Cradle Games. Set in a surreal and dark science-fantasy future, mankind and aliens alike seek to harness the power of the soul, and to wrest power away from the cosmic gods of old.

Something strange has happened aboard the colossal space station Irid Novo. The black hole it orbits seemingly grows hungrier by the day, and mad cultists and void-spawned demons stalk the halls. The station's AI has created you—a 3D-printed agent—to investigate.

Featuring intense hack n' slash action combat solo or in co-op (split-screen or online), Hellpoint plunges players into a twisted universe where the line between magic and technology has blurred to nothingness. Players will arm themselves with blades, rifles and more esoteric weapons, and face off against ancient cosmic deities in their quest to unravel the station's dark truths.
