Best of luck to you guys.  Hope you can get Stonehenge and Abyss added.  Would be a very good addition to the HGL community.

Omerta, it looks like you need to enable some kind of bot protection on that wiki. Spammers have discovered it, and started to insert random gibberish into pages... >:(

Ah good catch, I had not noticed yet. I have disabled account creation until I can add some anti-spam features later today.

I'm definitely interested in dev work Omerta.  I'm not sure how much I can do but it is still my favorite game and if we can get it up and running on a personal server it would make my day/life so much more awesome.

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.

Cheers~~

I actually played Hellgate London SP and MP when Flagship Studios had the game.  Since T3Fun took over, the game went downhill.  I didn't play the game since then.

Finally time to get exited again , i think this is the best News of 2016.
I hope it all goes right and we see a working Hellgate Multiplayer in the future again.
Cant wait for it  (I Hope it will have Tokyo content at some point - I still have the Global Client if anyone needs)

Greetings to all Hellgate Fans ;)

It sounds like solid progress is being made, great news and thanks must go to all concerned 8). I wish I could help but I have not the skills, plus all my efforts to persuade those I know with said skills has fallen on deaf ears :'(.
Anyway lets hope 2017 sees Hellgate Multiplayer live again.

I don't want to ruin the party, but I wonder if the actual owners of the game will let us kill Molloch in peace.

 I guess they can force you to stop this project, no? I mean, they still want to make money with this license.

Or maybe we'll be tolerate as long as you don't monetize this project. I'm not fimaliar at all with the laws on this particular subject, but maybe someone on the forum is, and can give an answer to this...

Anyway, congratulations for the work you've already done, I wish you all the best for the future.
It's been 9 years since I'm waiting for that moment!

Heya Hildos,long time no see :) Great to see you back.

Or maybe we'll be tolerate as long as you don't monetize this project.

It certainly won't be monetized.
I'm not entirely familiar with the laws on the matter myself,but the plan is to step on as few legal mines as possible :)

I'm pretty sure they most certainly could force us to stop or at least prevent us from going live, regardless of wether we monetize or not, it's their property after all.
I personally doubt they will though tbh. That chinese server has been up for quite a while and is even asking for a quite hefty sub fee.
And no we won't ask for any money :)

Yes, it will include Stonehenge and Abyss. There aren't many pictures yet because only the devs have access right now. If you're lucky Omerta sees this and might post one or two :P

Post by: NiKKeZ on Dec 09, 2016; 07:29 PM
I am so excited about this. I enjoyed The Abyss and Parliament Square and the Catacombs. But my favourite ever area was The Wilds and the Dessicator hunts that we used to go on. I was gutted that hardly anybody was interested in The Wilds in Hellgate: Global.
Title: Re: London 2038 Hellgate Multiplayer Relaunch
Post by: hildos on Dec 09, 2016; 07:52 PM
Same for me NiKKeZ, Dessi's hunt was the best part of the game imo. With mythics items introduced on HGG, the deep wild became obsolete. I hope this new team will give us a chance to find great loots on the wild.
Gosh, I can't beleive what is going to happen with this game.  :o

Looking forward to this project.

I can say when Flagship originally put Abyss on the PTR, those enemies were hard.  But was fun seeing something new too.  Glad you guys won't be charging anything in sub fees.  I wouldn't be able to afford paying for a sub.

Hello . I'm a new user.Can someone explain to me what this project is about?

Heya Dragonborn,welcome :)

As the title suggests,the main focus of the project is to create a functional server for the game.This will be achieved through a variety of resources the dev team has at their disposal,and will not be monetized by any means.I cannot stress this enough,as it has been a very important fact to clarify.

Useful links on the project can be found on TheWalkingDerp's initial post.For any more information,kindly join us on Discord or ask here :)

This is a story only life can tell - with the end of Global I buried my hopes for Hellgate. I know U are in very early state but what I saw yesterday let my heart jump for joy! I hope U guys can fix the major bugs and let the gates open again.
I m excited!

Keep up the good work!!

Just signed up to say hi and thank everyone who is involved in trying to put this together. I was an avid player of the original launch of this game and was gutted when it was taken offline.

Can't wait for this to get up and running so I can play online with people again!  :D

Keep up the good work.

i dont know what you being a trump fan has to do with London 2038.


joking aside, i am waiting eagerly for anything playable. i miss the wilds. i miss the online component. and im really fed up with borderlands. right now im replaying ME2/3, hoping 3 will actually have a decent ending this time.

...

... sigh
okay, red, blue or green?

Your English here is more than adequate. Perhaps some others speak your mother tongue and could help you if you were chosen to test.

Thank you my friend.
I speak English but with an accent which i don't know how much it can bother people.
I hope to be one of the chosen been playing hellgate for over 7 years now "on and off of curse" but didn't play on the official servers because it closed right when i was starting to get interested.
