CVG has previewed the upcoming demonic-post-apocalyptic dungeon crawl Hellgate: London. They give away some interesting background info on the story.
For centuries the veil between the demonic and
earthly realms has grown weaker and weaker as man has lost his belief
in the supernatural and embraced the ways of science" whispers Bill
Roper, CEO of Flagship Studios and the man behind such diamond
franchises as Warcraft
and Diablo, in a fittingly dark and mysterious way. Unsurprisingly in
his new game, Hellgate: London, the demons have found a way to break
through into our world. And they've not only broken into our capital
city, they've also broken into the single most exciting role-playing experience currently on the radar.
The story follows the Knights Templar, the
oft-covered sect who have been quietly preparing for the demonic
onslaught for centuries, yet have been forced into subterranean havens
peppered throughout the London Underground system. From here they
attempt to rebuild society while nightmares stalk the streets above
them. Your character enters proceedings 25 years in the future, and
five years after the success of the demons in taking over large parts
of the earth. And it's here that the adventure begins.
So it's kind like if the Master won, but he was Diablo instead of
the Master. And the Knights Templar are the Brotherhood of Steel
kinda? Still, sounds interesting.
