Taken from the website FAQ.

No, Hellion is going to be a Multiplayer only game, but the game will feature a deep background story for players to explore at their own convenience.

You can find out more on our website Story and Features page, also updates and feeds will be posted on our Blog page.

Localization is not our focus during the early access stage, but we do plan to release a multi language support in the future.

Looks like the game crashed and burned as its been removed from Steam, YouTube video below about what might have happened although I think it just did not have enough variation in it's gameplay to stand out from other similar types of games.

🙁 it was promising too, their website is down as well.... found this online.

Hellion was released into Early Access on February 24, 2017. Hellion was officially released Oct 21, 2019, but news from Oct 15, 2019, had already revealed that Hellion's further development would be suspended. In late March of 2020, sales on Steam for "Hellion" stopped and the game was available for free from March 27, 2020 - March 30, 2020. After that, it was no longer available on Steam and the project "Hellion" was discontinued.
Players, who bought the game earlier or downloaded it for free, still can play it.

If we knew that it was going away i would have picked up the early access version.

Do you have to have the game in the steam library for you to use this project or can you download it somewhere?

I don't know.  The main dev says he requires people to have it in their steam account in order to not promote piracy, but since I have it in my account, I can't really test if there is a way around this.
