Hellgate's North American F2P Return

T3 Entertainment, Redbana, and HanbitSoft announce plans to bring Hellgate back to North America, reviving Hellgate: London, the action/RPG that sank its developer Flagship Studios back in 2008. The game is now a free-to-play MMORPG to launch later this year, and they expect to have their first closed beta test from June 3 to June 5. A new Hellgate Global Website is online and the game's YouTube channel has a few trailers. Here's word on what to expect:

Players are invited to return to Hellgate this June to fight for the survival of the human race. Join a party online to fight against evil with a team or play solo if youíre brave enough. Choose your character from six different unique class types and prepare for battle against creatures from hell. Arm yourself with a wide variety of weapons and armor and dismantle the ones you donít need to obtain rare scrap metals. Enhance your weapons with upgrades and relics to have the best chance of survival.

When Hellgate returns, you better be ready.

The entire game is a series of half baked features, why do properties like this even get revived at all when so many good ones don't get a second chance?
Because they think they can monetize the fuck out of it with microtransactions, and given the other kinds of crap people are willing to throw their money at, it's not very far-fetched to think it might work for them.

I'm certainly willing to play this for free - it can't be any worse than it was. Right? Right?
I'd rather buy an actual game and have fun than spend money to support their fucked up business model.
