Hollowpoint, a game introduced late last year, has received a new trailer that dives into the backstory of the corporation-owned dystopia once known as Earth. Fifty years of war and poverty gave birth to a world ran entirely by mega-corporations. In the game (developed by Ruffian Games and published by Paradox Interactive), players will lead a team of mercenaries, called Hollowpoints, and carry out missions for whichever mega-corporation is willing to pay the most.

Hollowpoint blends the mechanics of a 2D side-scroller with 3D combat and targeting. In addition to single-player missions, the game will also give players the ability to team up with three other players for online four player co-op. Each and every mission is procedurally generated, with random objectives, layouts, and events, giving players plenty of unique opportunities to earn money, experience, and gear for their mercenary team. 

As of now, no exact release date has been announced, but Hollowpoint is set to release for both PS4 and PC sometime in 2015.
