The Newtonian, physics-based, space-survival simulator from Zero Gravity called Hellion has officially entered into Early Access on Steam.
The game is currently available for download for $24.99.
The hook for the title is that while surviving in space, gamers will have to deal with collecting limited resources and dealing with harsh survival conditions. One of the highlights of the game is that apparently a lot of the environmental objects and interactive items are all physics-based.
Marko Smiljanic, creative director at Zero Gravity commented about that next step that they’re taking by going into Early Access and working on improving the game from there, stating…
“Launching Hellion on Steam Early Access is a big step forward for us”, “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 game features various types of environmental hazards, EVA exploration with zero gravity movement, as well as multiplayer that allows players to team up with other players and explore the world or go head-to-head in PvP.
You can get an idea of what the gameplay is like with the Hellion Early Access trailer below.
The trailer sent a lot of fans who have been following the development of Hellion into a tizzy. Why? Because boobs.
They were super excited at the idea of female space miners being in the game, and were really looking forward to that addition to the game.
I guess while some people sit around condemning gamers for liking women, some gamers sit around being glad that they get an opportunity to like women.
Anyway, they did have to make a minor change to the multiplayer, scaling back the shards from housing up to 100 players to only allowing for 30 players. This was spotted by Blues, who reported that for the time being they’re only going to allow for 30 players until they can optimize the code to boost it back up to 100.
