New Hunter Class Info
Gamespot has posted an updated Q&A with Flagship Studios CEO Bill Roper.
Though Hellgate: London represents the debut game from Flagship Studios, the developers certainly have a lot of game-making experience under their belt. The studio was founded by the creators of Blizzard's famed Diablo series, and Hellgate: London takes some of the core concepts of Diablo (randomly generated levels and nonstop action) and transplants them into a new action game that's set in the gutted remains of a futuristic London overrun by a demonic invasion. The game, which can be played from a first-person or third-person perspective, will let you hack the demons apart with futuristic swords as a templar, which is a type of knight. Or, you can blast them with spells as a cabalist, which is a spellcaster. The company also recently revealed a third faction, the hunter, which lets you shoot the demons with high-tech weapons. To get the details about this new faction, we caught up with Flagship CEO Bill Roper. Hellgate: London is scheduled to ship sometime next year.
