Hellgate: London’s rogue server schedules its beta for Halloween

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.

What I love is that Helgate London was relased as a singel player game after it´s death now that´s something I wish more mmo´s did if they died so you could still revisit it but with out the mmo aspect of it. Like wild stars could still be alive but as a single player game.

I always liked the backstory for Hellgate.

I mean, modern day templars fighting demonic invasions. It’s great!

If it had been popular, it could have had spinoffs. Hellgate: Seoul. Hellgate: New York. Hellgate: Edmonton…..and so on.

It had such promise.

Oh, excellent! I don’t fancy the resurrected version that’s on Steam at the moment.

So glad this server is still going and that people still remember this game. Neither of my parents ever got into gaming at all, but my dad actually got interested and read the entire trilogy of novels they released for Hellgate after seeing me reading them. We had some very memorable discussions about the world and lore of this game, and I’ll always have extremely fond memories of it because of that.

Here’s hoping someone also brings back Mythos someday!

Hellgate: London is a game that deserved better, and somehow has survived longer than it had any right to.

London 2038 is a solid project. Hopefully this beta announcement will bring some more people to the game, which is already very stable. It has been running for so long that I didn’t even realize it is still considered alpha.
