And for gamers who can't wait until Halloween to get their Demon-slaying on,
Flagship Studios is releasing a singleplayer demo this Friday, October 19th.
The singleplayer demo represents just a small taste of the Hellgate: London
experience. Gamers can choose from two of the game's six character classes: the
Blademaster, a master of swordplay and action-packed melee combat, or the
Marksman, a cool, calculating, long-range specialist.
In the demo, these heroes are able to battle through a small handful of
storyline and side quests as they adventure through the streets and tunnels
around London's Holborn Station.
Hellgate: London combines the depth of role-playing games and the action of
first-person shooter titles, while offering infinite playability with
dynamically generated levels, items, enemies, and events. Whether online or off,
a player creates a heroic character, completes quests, and battles through
innumerable hordes of demons to advance through experience levels and branching
skill paths. A robust, flexible skill and spell system, highly customizable
appearances, and a massive variety of randomly generated equipment allow players
to create their own unique hero.
