It’s the corpse that refuses to be buried — and it’s back to take a stab at virtual reality gamers.
That’s right, Hellgate London has returned for the billionth time. Developer T3 Entertainment and publisher Hanbitsoft, which simply refuse to let this property rest in peace, adapted the title for VR and pushed it out the door on March 31st with a $35 price tag. Perhaps the hope is that if enough iterations of this game are birthed into the world, it will trigger the true apocalypse? If that’s the case, then we politely ask these companies to cease and desist.
If you want to give this a try, you’ll need a HTC Vive or Oculus Rift and a note from your doctor. It should be noted that many of the comments for the game are quite negative, pointing out that the studio seems to have changed Hellgate into a “rail-style shooter” and is “pretty much trash in every way.” This version also does not offer the multiplayer option of the original, which might do away with its remaining charm.
