Arrow Hellgate: London - Comes Back?

      Apparently we haven't heard the last shriek of the monsters from the "Hellgate: London" video game. And, of course, the team at our magazine is happy about the news. And this isn't just the only good news - the game will be played for free from now on multiplayer servers. Although it is slated to stop operating in the West on January 31, the multiplayer online title Hellgate: London will continue in "unspecified territories" as a free-to-play game, according to comments from Korean publisher and developer HanbitSoft:

      "HanbitSoft, Inc. announced that Hellgate: London will focus its future updates on strengthening community features. During Hellgate: London’s meeting with fan gamers on the 16th, producers and marketing managers revealed plans regarding the direction of future development and new features to be updated.

Maintaining the Speedy, Thrilling Action
Game Elements and Strengthening the Community System

      Hellgate: London’s future development direction will be focused on strengthening community features while maintaining the speedy and thrilling action game elements, as many users have wanted better community functionality for quite some time. HanbitSoft revealed the new content that is to be included in the next large-scale patch, which is expected to be released soon. In the upcoming update, HanbitSoft plans to combine the two game play modes, unifying the split two communities into one. Also planned are class balance improvements and differentiation of each of the 5 acts. Gamers who attended the conference applauded this announcement.

Hellgate: London Switches Over to a Free-to-Play Model

      During the conference, HanbitSoft also announced that Hellgate: London will soon be serviced in a free-to-play model. This was the first time that any related official announcements had been made. HanbitSoft explained that by switching over to a free-to-play model, users will feel less burdened, opening the doors to a larger, more diverse gaming community. The date of the free-to-play switch over is undetermined at this point, but HanbitSoft stated that more news will be released through the official Hellgate: London website soon."

      Of course, there are still some issues to be "fixed" like the intellectual property and the distribution rights, but we hope that these "minor glitches" will fade away with time due to the huge fan-base of the game. We will keep you up to date with this development.
