Title: Hellgate returning as F2P
Post by: UnSub on May 19, 2011, 08:21:59 PM
I think "well-loved" is a bit strong, but anyway, H:L is returning in a new form. (http://www.mmorpg.com/newsroom.cfm/loadNews/20648)

Has any title ever returned from the Graveyard?  :grin:

#1. What the hell does that trailer have to do with Hellgate? A chick sleeping in a bra and rapid images of swords.  :uhrr:

#2. The new concept pics look kinda interesting.

#3. I still have no idea what all this means to me as a player.

*Edit*

Looks like you have to download the new client. I registered and started the DL.

*Edit X2*

I'm not impressed so far. The english localization is terrible, if a bit funny. You can get a Nerd title. Nyuck nyuck.
There's a PIN number to... I dunno. Piss people off? You have to enter it every now and then to access gates and (according to the help text) make transactions secure in the game.
Gameplay is HGL so far. There's a bit of new zones mixed in with the old ones to facilitate it being an instanced MMOGlike, like Guild Wars.

Need to play some more to make a real evaluation.

Are the skill trees different?  I thought they needed more time in the oven

So I've been working overtime and not had a huge amount of time to dump into playing, but so far it seems like HGL, fagged up with a lot of Premium Service gimmicks.
It just makes me want to play my original version offline so I don't have to deal with annoying PIN codes, retarted chat spam, and annoying token drops.
