Hellgate Global Backs for Resurrection On Steam Greenlight
ByDate: Aug 20 2014 Views:
Do you remember Hellgate? This MMORPG was developed by former Blizzard employees, and then launched back in November 2007 as Hellgate: London. It was one of the most ambitious MMO projects back then, implementing both first-person and third person designs to a huge world with grizzly enemies. However, it struggled to make money. Eventually, the MMO was taken down. South Korean distributor Hanbitsoft then secured the worldwide publishing rights back in January 2010 and set to work on a relaunch. Now, its revived version Hellgate Global has appearenced on Steam Greenlight, seeking votes to bring its free-to-play title to Valve's popular platform.
Check out the following two trailers from steam:
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.
Hellgate Global have retained most of the previous version features together with the following updates brought by the Tokyo Patch:
Hellgate Tokyo continues the story of the London Resurrection. Heroes start in Tokyo Base, and continue on to different locations as they progress through the story. Tokyo is composed of 24 new levels, with new named monsters and boss monsters.
Hellgate Tokyo introduces two modes, Cow Room and Base Defense.
- In Cow Room, heroes could test their strength by facing hordes and hordes of zombies. The zombies can puff out flames, and some them may contain boss monsters that drop new recipes and shield set items. Also, sandstorms hinder heroes’ seeing ability, giving more challenge to the mode.
- In Base Defense, heroes defend supply bases against a horde of demons. In order to overcome the challenge, heroes are required to work with other heroes to ensure the safety of the bases. If the heroes manage to defend the bases, they will receive rewards ranging from palladium to rare set items or legendary items, depending on how well they manage to defend the bases.
Heroes wanting more challenge from Hellgate Tokyo will now be able to play in Hell Mode, with the chance of better loots and experience from upgraded mobs and bosses.
