HellgateTM: London is the first original title from premier developer Flagship Studios to be published by Namco's newly created PC division. Set in the near future, Hellgate: London introduces a world devastated by a demon invasion. Players are thrust into a desolate city scorched by hellfire where the few survivors must meld science and sorcery in order to gain a foothold against the minions of darkness and save the bloodline of humanity.
Hellgate: London combines the depth of Role-Playing Games with the action of First-Person titles, while offering infinite replayability and an individualized gaming experience through dynamically created levels, monsters, items, and events. Players create a hero and then battle through innumerable hordes of demons while completing quests and advancing through experience levels and branching skill paths. A robust, flexible skill and spell system, highly-customizable items, and a massive variety of randomly generated equipment allow players to create a hero that is truly unique.
A New Perspective on RPGs
Combining the depth and customizability of Role-Playing games with the action of those played from the First-Person perspective, the play is fast-paced without relying upon lightning-fast reflexes to achieve a high level of success or enjoyment.
Unique and Appealing World
Whether adventuring alone or banding together with friends, explore the intensely ominous setting of post-apocalypse London. From ancient ruins buried beneath the streets of the city to shattered cathedrals to the last remnants of humanity bunkered in the Underground, the lines of fact and myth are blurred as a few glorious heroes fight for their very souls.
Fight against the demons of the underworld as one of several unique character classes. Ike the Templar, each class has a unique visual and game play style based on their particular history and place in the world. Randomly generated items that can be modified in numerous ways ensure that heroes are distinct and individualized.
Hell on Earth
Battle against a wide variety of demonic enemies, each with their own unique attributes, abilities, and vulnerabilities.
With dynamically generated levels, massive quantities of randomly created items, chance events and story driven quests, no two gaming experiences are ever the same. Differing levels of rarity and modification potential across items and skills means that every game played a unique event.
Single-Player and Online Multiplayer Support
While Hellgate: London stands on its own as a single player game, it also provides a compelling cooperative multiplayer experience through our dedicated online gaming destination. By creating unique and individualized game play "instances" within a vast online community, gamers get all of the best parts of traditional massive multiplayer games without the common downsides.
