T3 Entertainment's relaunch of the online multiplayer demon hunting PC game Hellgatekicks off its open beta phase today, inviting players in North America do help rid the world of the hellish hordes starting tonight at 7:30PM Eastern.
Just when you thought North America and Europe were safe from the invasion of hell spawn, Korean online gaming publisher HanbitSoft goes and acquires international publishing rights for Hellgate from Namco Bandai, and all hell breaks loose.
Proving you can't keep an ill-conceived MMO down, the Hellgate series is back. And it's moved on from London. And the English language. And now finds itself in Japan. Speaking Korean.
Atlus Online has revealed the first game to be offered on the new online community, JoyImpact's massively multiplayer online steampunk game Neo Steam: The Shattered Continent.
Despite news to the contrary back in November, Korean publisher and developer HanbitSoft still plans to maintain Hellgate: London as a free-to-play title on a global scale after Namco Bandai's January 31st server shutdown.
