Multiplayer sci-fi sandbox Hellion demos survival gameplay ahead of January early access

Back in November, we reported on the rollout of Hellion, a PvP-centric multiplayer sci-fi survival sandbox aiming for a Jaunary early access launch. Today, indie studio Zero Gravity has put out a new trailer for the game, which is apparently still on track, this one showcasing the survival elements in play in the gameworld.

As we've written before, in addition to its survival-themed PvP system, Hellion boasts a "complex resource gathering system," crafting, ship maintenance, space stations, modular and customizable equipment, ship-vs.-ship combat, item decay, and "a deep backstory within an immersive multiplayer experience." Oh yeah, and it's really pretty, which is evident in the video we've tucked down below.

Graphically very nice, but apart from a constant work to survive there doesn't seem to be anything else to do?  Which is a shame reason games of this genre like Subnautica appeal to me is because they have something to do but stay alive..this game needs to follow suit otherwise it will just end up being H1Z1 in space..and we all know what thats like lol

The game looks good, but the gameplay looks boring.  This would work better if it was a 3rd person mmo.  First person view isn't good for micro-managing so many systems.

Too many things to watch for and take care of in the game ... I'l stick to SkySaga and others that are simpler for dumb and lazy people like me. =D

I liked Ark for a time, but...I'll be glad when this survival fad finally blows over.

@Kirin you know minecraft is the second best selling game of all time so you might have to wait awhile.
