Story, missions & quests


We are introducing a deep and immersive Hellion story into the gameplay. Players will have the opportunity to enjoy the role-playing experience by doing quests while discovering the secrets of a distant solar system. For that purpose, we have implemented:


  • Tracking system for missions
  • Quest markers
  • Journal
  • Audio logs
  • Written logs


New inventory system


The main goal of this change is to make manipulating items faster and easier, for both character inventory (suit slots) and storage (nearby shelves and containers). Proximity loot system is also in place allowing players to access nearby shelves and containers from their inventory screen.


  • New inventory UI design
  • 3D character preview
  • Proximity loot
  • Added quick slots (1 - primary; 2 - secondary; 3 - bombs; 4 - Medpacks/Small Canisters)
  • Dedicated slots on guns and mining drills for ammo, battery and canisters
  • Health bars added to all items in inventory


New locations and new modules for these locations


Added multiple new modules and custom locations as part of the main story arc. We won’t spoil them here, so look for them in game.


New sounds


There is no sound in vacuum but in pressurized rooms there is plenty of them. Added a multitude of new sound effects to the game and improved existing ones to improve the quality of gameplay experience.


Flight mode assistance


Added flight assistance for ships that automatically tries to compensate for ships lateral velocity, relative to your current target.


  • Auto-adjustment for lateral speed when a vessel is moving towards the target
  • Toggle on/off available


Steam achievements




  • Lightbake for all modules
  • Texture density
  • Ship/module rotation limited for server processing optimization
  • GPU instancing enabled
  • Hide canvas UI on proximity range
  • Network improvements resulting in better ship and module movement
  • LZ4HC Unity file compression enabled


General improvements


  • Powered up modules have significantly higher degradation resistance

  • Planet textures improvements - new textures added to all planets and moons

  • Main menu redesigned
  • Match velocity to the target that is already matched to another target (previously not possible)
  • Pressurization/Depressurization speed properly set for all modules
  • Masses adjusted for all modules
  • Added decals to the docking panels
  • Changing video settings enabled while outside of main menu
  • Quick load available after death in single player mode
  • Rescue ship button added to Command Module
  • Doomed orbit warning visible on NavMap
  • In game latency warning will show up when latency is over 120ms
  • Added Ambience volume slider
  • Removed bloom and motion blur from NavMap
  • Pilot panel UI improvements
  • Mouse sensitivity range increased (it is possible now to set it under 1)
  • Hide in-game chat option added in menu
  • External warp start/end effects changed
