Como algunos sabrán Flagship Studios es la compañía formada por ex-miembros de Blizzard (Bill Roper a la cabeza) responsables de Diablo 1 y 2. Ya hace buen tiempo que se esperaba algún anuncio sobre el juego en el que están trabajando y al fin hay noticias. El nombre del juego: Hellgate: London. Por lo que veo es algo así como un diablo2 futurista??. Leer lo que sigue...
Flagship Studios Game Announced - Flux [7:51:PST]
The April edition of PC Gamer is just hitting the stores, and it contains the first news about the first game from Flagship Studios. The game is called Hellgate:London, it's due out in 2006 (cross your fingers now, knowing those guys and release dates) and the eight-page PC Gamer article covers it in excellent detail. The game is set in a post-apocalyptic London, and while it's played like a First Person Shooter, Flagship spokesman Bill Roper calls it an RPG. As the article explains, the game looks like Doom or Quake or Halo at a glance, but it's a far deeper experience than those simple shoot 'em ups, and has a ton of features that will sound very familiar to any D2 fan.
To start with, you select a character class much as you would in D2. There will be a variety of classes with different stats, skills, spells, and so on. As you score kills you gain exp and when you level up you gain stat and skill points to distribute as you see fit. Your stat points will matter too, and they will affect your character's accuracy, damage, life, and other such things. Monsters will drop items when they die, and not just new guns or ammo; there will be all sorts of weapons, armor, and more, even socketed weapons and uniques. The game will even play like an RPG, with numerous random quests, boss monsters, and so on. There's even going to be cooperative play with multiplayer support for up to 16 or 32 players, and of course there will be death match options as well.
