Continuing its partnership with Sony Computer Entertainment, Paradox Interactive announced Hollowpoint and Runemaster for PlayStation 4 and PC during Sony’s Gamescom press conference.
Hollowpoint is an action co-op combat title developed by Ruffian Games due out in 2015. Set in the 22nd century, it puts players in charge of secretive Organizations of corporate mercenaries, taking on missions for pay and prestige alongside three other players in online co-op. Gameplay blends 2D side-scrolling action with seamless 3D targeting into stages’ backgrounds.
A list of features:
- Old School Meets Near-future: Hollowpoint is played in a blend of traditional 2D side-scrolling action with 3D targeting, challenging players to take down enemies in front of them as well as in the background of their surroundings
- Plan and Execute: Each mission is procedurally generated along with objectives, level layouts, and events, requiring a mix of strategic planning and skillful action to complete – no mission is merely “routine”
- Organisation, Corporation, and Cooperation: Team up with friends via Steam or PSN and take on contracts together, handling your personal Operatives to succeed – or fail – together
- Upgrade and Adapt: Earn experience and skill points to upgrade Operatives, and outfit them with the right abilities, weapons, and equipment for the job

Runemaster is a tactical RPG developed by Paradox Development Studio. In it, players will write their own sagas as they guide custom heroes through conflict across six worlds of Norse mythology. It offers turn-based tactical combat, an “emergent” narrative told through procedural quests, and an “ever-changing” world to “ensure every story is unique to its player.”
