Hellgate: London, the once lost action RPG created by the now defunct Flagship Studios, is returning to North America thanks to its subsequent acquisition and redevelopment by HanbitSoft and T3 Entertainment. Re-branded as Hellgate, Hellgate will return to operations in North America as a free-to-play MMORPG use microtransactions for revenue. Players will have the option to choose from six unique classes at launch to battle the evil creatures from hell.
Hellgate is an action RPG that allows you to play in a first-person or third-person perspective. Set 27 years into the future, an ancient prophecy made centuries ago has come true and the gates of hell have opened. Demons have overrun the world of man and roam our lands, destroying, pillaging and killing humans. With the world above ground abandoned, dark and burnt to hellfire, humans are forced into hiding to protect what remains of their race while making plans to take back a world that was once theirs. In the game, mankind escapes to the underground system under the sprawling metropolis of London. Prepare for a struggle for survival in a world that has become hell.
