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. For more
