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.
Korean MMO developer T3 is behind the revival of Hellgate, which was originally created and handled by Flagship Studios before it fell into financial collapse. HanbitSoft Inc and Redbana are acting as the game's publishers in Asia and North America respectively.
"Players are invited to return to Hellgate this June to fight for the survival of the human race. Join a party online to fight against evil with a team or play solo if you’re brave enough. Choose your character from six different unique class types and prepare for battle against creatures from hell," blurbs the release.
"Arm yourself with a wide variety of weapons and armor and dismantle the ones you don’t need to obtain rare scrap metals. Enhance your weapons with upgrades and relics to have the best chance of survival."
The original game, Hellgate: London, featured a subscription model to play online with other fans but it proved too difficult for Flagship to manage and eventually closed. For more on Hellgate's return visit the official . Did you play Hellgate?
