Hello there, i am playing Hellgate in Hong Kong (China). It has MP... but the community is not that big... to be honest, there are maybe 100 or so active players... and it only has SH, no abby or tokyo...
The game is free to download and play (SP & MP). but if you want SH, you'd have to pay, it is around USD15 a month or USD130 a year. Paid players (VIP) get to access SH and 5 mill. Pad. And out of all the active players, i am the only paid player. So i am the only one playing SH... gets lonely, lol. i have been playing for around 2 months now on and off, Lvl50,R20 evoker.
I played the original HGL back then and my IGN is HGL101, not sure if there is any players from back then.
