Hellgate: London Hits Retail

HellgateLondon.jpgThis week has turned into an amazing one for PC RPG fans. Alongside Atari’s new release of The Witcher, EA and Namco Bandai have now unleashed Hellgate: London on North American and European store shelves. Flagship Studios’ debut title is not only among the leading RPGs of the year, it’s one of the top games overall. So forget about trick or treating this Halloween night, you should stop by the nearest game store, pick up a copy and spend the night hacking and slashing instead.

“Today marks a major milestone for Flagship Studios,” said Bill Roper, CEO of Flagship Studios. “The greatest thrill any developer can have is to see their game actually in a player’s hands. We’ve put our all into making Hellgate: London a great gaming experience, and now we’re able to share what has been a huge part of the past four years of our lives with our friends, family, and the world.”

“The core of the EA Partners program is utilizing our strengths as a publishing organization to help world-class independent development studios like Flagship bring their games to market globally,” said David DeMartini, Vice President and Global General Manager, EA Partners. “Hellgate: London is a great achievement and we are excited to have had the opportunity to work with Flagship and NAMCO BANDAI in delivering a breakthrough action RPG.”
