Default Hellgate London - Euor Pricing Announced

August 22nd, 2007, 23:47
From Flagship's Hellgate: London site:
Flagship Studios are pleased to announce the pricing structure for its upcoming highly-anticipated action role-playing game HELLGATE: LONDON in Europe. For expectant players HELLGATE: LONDON will offer players two ways to play through Standard and Subscription accounts.

For all players, HELLGATE: LONDON comes completely free-to-play out of the box and will offer a secure online experience with features including the ability to play cooperatively with thousands of other players, trade items, join guilds and enjoy a host of gameplay and community features including voice chat and buddy lists.

For players with Subscription* accounts ( € 9.99 / £6.99 per month) , Flagship Studios will deliver exciting new ongoing content including new character classes, areas, monsters, items and raid content, new game modes (including Hardcore, Role-Play and PvP mode), and additional character and stash slots. Subscribers can found guilds, select to nominate an officer and will have access to guild and player housing. Other features include in-game email for items, web access to characters and a place in future beta lotteries.

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. The 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.
HELLGATE: LONDON will be released in Europe on November 2nd.

For more information about the game please visit www.hellgatelondon.com .

* Some subscription features will be available only after the release of HELLGATE: LONDON.

I already noticed the typo but the edit didn't stick for some reason. Should be right on the news page now.

Wait a minute. We can't play Hardcore mode unless we pay? Are they kidding?
Brace for the backlash Mr. Roper.

Amazingly, that seems to be correct.

The FAQ at hellgateguru states:

2.13.0 HARDCORE MODE:

2.13.1 Will there be a hardcore mode in Hellgate: London like there was in Diablo 2?

Yes. (For those unfamiliar with the definition of hardcore mode: It means there are no extra lives. Once you die, your character can no longer be played.)

UPDATE: 05/09/2007
According to both GFW and Lee Dotson, Hardcore mode will be subscriber-only content.
I couldn't tell if this applied to single player or not—but for multi-player looks like if you want the hardcore bragging rights you're going to have to shell out for them.

Where there's smoke, there's mirrors.

Argh. Down with Capitalism. I guess I will be paying for multi player Hardcore rights.
Seriously, Arrggh.

I will be checking HG:L out for sure.

If it turns into a raid game though i'll be heading for the hills just as fast - well pending on community.
