South Korean publisher Hanbitsoft has announced that Hellgate: London will enter closed beta on June 3-5 and that it will be Free-to-Play. The hack and slash MMO which combined elements of the Diablo series as well as both feudal and sci-fi themed direction had high hopes but ultimately fell flat due to convoluted gameplay and technical issues, as well as lackluster community support and its servers closed just two years after its November 2007 release.
So it's basically a game where Cthulhu crawled onto Earth and you donned neon plate armor to shoot him in the face.
Thankfully, the game is going to be given a second chance from to South Korean publisher Hanbitsoft. It's unclear how exactly Hanbitsoft plans to follow through with the Hellgate re-release or if premium services will be offered, but fans who can't wait for Diablo 3 and need their gothic MMO fix might want to keep their eyes on this one.
