Set in the near future, Hellgate: London introduces a world devastated by Demonic invasion and a desolate city scorched by hellfire. Now as one of only a few surviving Londoners, players must meld science and sorcery in order to gain a foothold against the minions of darkness and save the bloodline of humanity.
Hellgate: London combines the depth of role-playing games with the action of first-person shooters while offering infinite replayability and an individualized gaming experience with dynamically created levels, monsters, items, and events. Players create a hero and then battle through innumerable hordes of demons while completing quests and advancing through experience levels and branching skill paths. A robust, flexible skill and spell system, highly-customizable items, and a massive variety of randomly generated equipment will allow players to create a hero that is truly unique.
