CES: Hellgate London Impressions
Just posted on FiringSquad, a look at Hellgate: London from the CES floor.
At Microsoft's Games for Windows booth we got to play a build of Hellgate London and even several months before its scheduled summer 2007 it was as addicting a game as you will ever play. The backstory is simple; a crack in dimensions in the near future has brought London, England transformed into a bleak and battered city with creatures of literally all shapes and sizes roaming around. In our demo we got to play as the Hunter class which is being made specifically for people who enjoy first person perspective. With the use of futuristic firearms in this player class, Hellgate London could be confused at first for an FPS but it's clearly an RPG with impoved skills and levels, an inventory and more.
More is just a click away.
