HGLD 1.5patch news

HanbitSoft Releases New Maps Details of Hellgate: London

Seoul, Korea – April 15, 2009 – HanbitSoft Inc. announced that HELLGATE: LONDON, an online action RPG developed by Redbana US Studio, will present new maps in its up-coming 1.5Patch, and released screenshots of them.
The revealed maps are Training Grounds and Maritime Museum. Training Ground will become the new starting area of Hellgate, which gives bright, outdoor spirit to the game. There, players will see many NPCs holding weapons and training the players. After players accomplished the training part, they will be able to go on to the next new map called Maritime Museum.

Maritime Museum is a huge building with two stories. Maritime Museum is expected to become the new center base of the game with various quests and convenience systems. First of all, Marketplace will be placed in Maritime Museum, so players will constantly come in and go out for items exchange and communication with other players. Also, there will be new quests, and Arena Terminal to activated PvP mode that will give both entertainment and convenience to the gamers.

HanbitSoft also revealed screenshots of new maps, items and a boss monster which include Guardian’s Two-handed sword and axe and Arachtonas, one of new boss monsters. Revealed images are just part of many that will be updated through 1.5Patch, and details of the rest will also be revealed very soon.

This is the sixth announcement of Hellgates 1.5Patch details, and Korean gamers’ anticipation is reaching to its climax as outline of the Patch becomes clearer each week.

Wow. Just wow...I am blown away by how far Hanbitsoft is taking this game. I love Hellgate and being in the US makes me wish I could once again jump in a immerse myself in this beautiful world.

Hope you guys can bring this truly missed game back to our shores (It would make a lot of people very happy I think)

Impressive, I think this is the first time I have seen Red Banana create something that was not originally done by Flagship Studios. Good job Hanbitsoft.

I so wish Namco-Bandai could come clean as to why they do not want to let you have the license to market the game outside of your jurisdiction.

For the first time in months, I actually think your product has promise. Good job Hanbitsoft, you made me wish I were a Korean citizen!

Roberticus said...

About Truthseekers comment, it smells fishy. Does Hanbitsoft deliberately avoid US/EU markets, and use Namco Bandai as an excuse?

TruthSeeker said...

maybe roberticus, maybe they just dont like us.

I am a Korean American living on the west coast of US. Since Namco denies
any control of US/EU market as of now
can I be able to connect to the server in Korea? Even though I paid
for the game previously I will pay again to Hanbitsoft for the game if I am allowed to connect to your server.
I hope this post is seen by a member
of Hanbitsoft.
