Hellion Update 0.2 Goes Live Today, New Trailer Released

Last week, Zero Gravity teased the first massive content update coming to Hellion since its Early Access launch in February – Update 0.2. The update is set to go live later today and will include female characters, ship customization, lockable doors, new weapons, and an overhauled loot distribution system.

In line with the update’s release, the developers have released a brand new cinematic trailer which gives fans a glimpse into the story and the tragedy behind humanity’s first attempt at an interstellar colony.

“Set in a distant future [when] mankind is no longer confined to Earth, the new Hellion cinematic trailer gives viewers a glimpse of the disaster that struck humanity’s attempt to build the first interstellar colony. Beginning with intimate shots of the crew’s quarters—scattered personal belongings floating through the cabins—the trailer hints at the dark force that drove the colony and its inhabitants to the brink of extinction. Set against the backdrop of a looming sun, the odds of survival are made clear amidst the desolation and vastness of space. With humanity’s descent into fear, anger and violence, Hellion’s cinematic trailer suggests that maybe the stars really are better off without us.”

Check out the new trailer after the break.
