Ballistic Interactive’s supernatural investigative RPG Hellsign is headed to Steam’s Early Access on Nov 7.
Inspired by paranormal investigations on TV, Hellsign puts players into the shoes of a hunter who’s roaming around Australia. Players will have various classes to choose from, all equipped with their own unique abilities. The narrative is told via contracts that players can take and complete in order to earn money for equipment upgrades. Each contract will involve investigating unknown nightly monsters and piecing their history together.
Hellsign‘s Early Access will let players experience the first of three planned chapters in story mode. There will be three bosses and 13 creatures to hunt, with all the planned gameplay features already implemented. Once the game releases, all three chapters will be accessible across three different job locations. The boss count also increases to 12, and there will be over 25 creatures to hunt. While the Early Access version aims to have 10-12 hours of gameplay, the final version promises 40 hours of content.
