Hellgate: London dev diary
Hellgate: London dev diary [ Game -> Preview ]

The latest Hellgate: London preview is a developer diary at IGN, written by an artist called Phil Shenk.

The design of the Templar class was a challenge from the beginning. It's one of those things where I had a good idea in my head what he should feel like, but I was having trouble coming up with the specifics. I knew that the Templar were supposed to feel like modern-day (or near-future) knights. But they couldn't feel archaic; they had to feel bad-assed to a modern audience. We knew that there was the potential risk that the design could be either too fantasy-looking or too generically sci-fi. The whole design process was a delicate balancing act between these two extremes.

Surely just copy the paladin class that they did in Diablo 2, since the class comes across as pretty similar?
