We’ve been spending a rather unhealthy amount of time tooling through the war-torn streets and subways in Hellgate: London’s beta. If you want to get in on the action, Flagship Studios is distributing access keys for those whopre-order the game.
But if you don’t have the guts to take a leap of faith on this FPS/RPG hybrid from the core creators of Diablo, then test the water by checking out the latest videos and screenshots, which highlight the game’s early bosses and starting areas.
So far, the boss fights are fun. But Hellgate: London’s beta currently lacks the truly epic and impressive boss encounters we’d eventually like to see. We want to blast demons ten times the size of the game’s earlier bosses, and hope for memorable monsters that rival the experience of downing Mephisto and Baal in Diablo II when the final game releases on Oct 31, 2007.
