Hellgate: London Screenshots



SANTA CLARA, Calif., (April 26, 2005) - Leading games publisher and developer Namco Hometek Inc. today announced "HELLGATE: LONDON," the first original PC title from premier developer Flagship Studios. "HELLGATE: LONDON" is a role-playing game set in the immersive first-person perspective. With a completely randomized world that offers a unique experience every time you play, "HELLGATE: LONDON" introduces a demon-ridden world where the last survivors of the human race must meld science and magic to survive.

"'HELLGATE: LONDON' is an incredibly ambitious title that will break the mold of conventional role-playing games," said Nobuhiro Kasahara, President and CEO of Namco Hometek, Inc. "With Flagship Studios' unprecedented experience, we are confident that 'HELLGATE: LONDON' will be one of the most anticipated PC games ever."

"With our first game, we intend to create something unique in the world of RPGs," said Bill Roper, CEO and co-founder of Flagship Studios. "By focusing our expertise and creative energy onto this one title, we are crafting a compelling world that combines massive amounts of randomization and customization to offer infinite replayability."

Set twenty-five years in the future, "HELLGATE: LONDON " introduces a world devastated by a demon invasion and a desolate city scorched by hellfire where mankind has gone underground to survive. Among them are the Templar, an archaic and secret society that foresaw this demonic apocalypse centuries ago. Followers of arcane rites, the Templar combine futuristic technology with ancient artifacts to forge powerful weapons and armor. The mystic sanctuary of the Underground system provides players safe conduct throughout the sprawling metropolis of London as they seek to preserve the bloodline of man and gain a foothold against the minions of darkness.

"HELLGATE: LONDON " combines the depth of role-playing games and action of first-person titles, while offering infinite playability with randomly created levels, items, 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.
