Hellgate Global Summary
Hellgate is a success in the more revolutionary areas of its gameplay, though more attention could have been paid to the typical action RPG elements.
Formerly Hellgate: London, free-to-play action-RPG MMO Hellgate Global's first expansion, Hellgate: Tokyo, has launched today for the low price of $2 USD, and new publisher HanbitSoft may be planning a sequel already.
The demonic hordes of Hellgate will be invading Tokyo next week on September 22. The new location will feature new quests, monsters, gear and more.
The closed beta for the Diablo-like MMO Hellgate: London, now simply called Hellgate, will begin on June 5, 7:30pm.
This early June will see the return of Hellgate as a short closed beta will run from the 3rd to the 5th, and it will launch fully as a free-to-play MMO later in 2011.
Team up or go solo to fight evil and choose between "six different unique class types". Hellgate is an action-RPG being reworked by T3 Entertainment.
Industry veteran Bill Roper formerly of Blizzard, Flagship Studios and Cryptic Studios, reveals he's still out there with "bigger PC console-type title pitches".
He's been "sitting on" them because money is "really tight right now" among publishers, particularly around MMOs. Roper wants "an exciting opportunity".
