As everyone remembers, good old Hellgate London shut down a few years ago due to internal rifts and external rifts, which resulted in a large playerbase being sadly turned away from Hell. I have some good news! Hellgate is re-launching as a F2P model, and is being re-developed and handled by HanbitSoft. Currently closed beta is due to open in early June, and keys are being given out via many sources, but there is also a 50/50 chance of gaining entry when you check their main website.

For beta access, simply go to the official site and sign up for an account, and once that is done, ensure your signed into the website, and click the button "Do you have your key to enter the gates of Hell?" Once that's clicked, as said, you'll have a 50/50 chance of gaining entry into the beta. If you're unlucky, on their forums is a post about where to obtain a key! Better be quick, stocks are very limited.

Also of note, AusGamers seems to be listed as wanting to locally host beta files, so keep an eye on the main site for more info when the files are released! promoted/edited forum item

I dunno about everyone else but I enjoyed hellgate. The only issue I had with it was the fact that every now and then my PC would slow to a crawl and i'd be getting a sweet 1 - 5 fps for a random length of time and then things would speed back up. Maybe I should install it again on my new pc and give it another whirl.

EDIT - Aww. I r sad. I went to my game shelf and picked up the box (yeah I bought it) and dvd isnt in there. Guess I can't play it.

"Your courage has been noted. You are chosen to enter the Gates of Hell. See you at the rift of Hellgate." Did I win?

I remember a friend telling me that he got less lag when he played online (but just by himself) instead of single player. Made no sense.

Glad I stayed away from that horrible game. Hope this one is better.

Hopefully so, looks really interesting, and apparently they're trying to really make it more Diablo style.

So are they actually adding new stuff? I had some fun with it, and if its f2p it'd be easy enough to get some mates along which'd be neat.

But I dunno if I feel like going through the same levels again...
