Hanbitsoft is rezzing Hellgate for VR

Poor Hellgate. One of these days may it rest in peace. In the meantime Hanbitsoft is attempting to resurrect it (again), this time with an eye toward porting the horror shooter onto some sort of virtual reality platform. MMO Culture reports that Hanbitsoft signed a deal with South Korea’s Skonec Entertainment to develop Hellgate VR.

Skonec’s website claims that the firm created “the world’s first gun shooting game,” a VR title called Mortal Blitz.

I used to enjoy running through levels in Hellgate.. It was pure mayhem at times. The loot and crafting was great fun for me as well. Interested to see if they can resurrect it.

Armsbend  Here’s the cinematic with her in action. Blur did a good job as usual…if only the game was a fraction as good. I loved the lore, story and concepts of the game, but they couldn’t survive the execution and mismanagement.

Pixelmancer It was probably the first MMO that I was ever seriously let down by.   There were plenty of games that never made it into my rotation, but I could appreciate them for what they were, despite not being the game for me.  But Hellgate was a hot mess and she broke my heart.

What is dead may never die. Seriously, let this RIP.

Hellgate was a fantastic idea let down by a serious of unfortunate developer events, and I’d go so far as to say that it helped to shape what Borderlands later became. One day I have a hope that the IP will be given to someone who can truly make use of it.

Unfortunately turning it into some VR experiment is not going to do that. :(

so they abandon Hellgate London with low graphic (the original was better) and no future content, than the announce they going to make Hellgate 2 – than they cancelled the project and now they making a VR on hellgate?

hellgate london always be one of my favorite mmo with original and new ideas and great story… like funcom done with TheSecretWorld.
