In terms of online video game resurrections, Hellgate: London seemed like it was going for the world record at one point. The infamous Flagship ARPG has seen more deaths and comebacks than your average superhero — and there’s at least one more to come, thanks to a group of player volunteers who are attempting to get a rogue server going.
The London 2038 project is making headway toward getting a working, functional version of Hellgate back online. The good news is that the team said that the beta will launch on — when else? — Halloween. You should note that to be part of this upcoming beta, you’ll need an actual copy of the defunct game.
“All of the 2038 team missed the amazing, ahead-of-its time ARPG Hellgate: London and wanted to bring it back to the passionate, dedicated, and friendly community the game has fostered after all these years,” the team said on the project’s website.
