Hellion is a first-person space survival multiplayer title, it is an immersive world set in a solar system many lightyears from the comforts of Earth and is entirely based on the laws of Newtonian physics. Players have to survive in the most hostile environment known to man by protecting themselves from the vacuum of space, gathering scarce life support resources, maintaining their base and interacting with other players.
Independent developer Zero Gravity launches Hellion on Steam Early Access for $24.99/£19.99/€22.99. "Launching Hellion on Steam Early Access is a big step forward for us”, said Marko Smiljanic, Creative Director at Zero Gravity. “The PC player base is extremely varied and demanding so having access to it during the development process allows us shape Hellion into what sci-fi fans really want”.
The first Hellion Early Access build allows players to salvage derelict station modules in order to obtain parts and resources to build their base and upgrade their own equipment. Hellion colonists can also choose to EVA mine raw resources and refine them into fuel, air and crafting components. Survivors have to exchange the safety of the ship for a thrilling EVA experience as they explore the ruins of mankind’s first interstellar colony in search of intel, resources and equipment. Players will experience the unique feel of zero gravity movement without restrictions and master the use of inertia for maximum benefit. The Hellion Early Access build offers free multiplayer interactions so players are able to play as a lone wolf, team up to pilot multi-crew ships with realistic navigation, or engage in PvP close quarters combat.
Future patches will add fully modular ship and equipment customization, ship to ship combat, asteroid ship mining, gas giant harvesting, realistic wound mechanics, suit damage and degradation, as well as allow building and hacking a security system and much more.
