Hellion is an open world multiplayer space survival game set in a distant star system amidst the ruins of mankind’s first interstellar colony….
Fight for survival in a cruel and mysterious world of humanity’s ruined hopes. Gather resources, build your outpost, navigate the ship through the vast outer space, find friends to help you and defeat your foes. Explore derelict ships, discover the hidden story and find your way to stay alive!
It sounds interesting, I’ll give them that but be wary of indie title with big ambitions. Let us not forget No Man’s Sky.
Here are some of the features the dev are promising for the final game:
Space based on real physics
