HGLD 1.5Patch - Tower Bridge

HanbitSoft Inc. announced today that the company released screen shots of Tower Bridge map for HELLGATE: LONDON, an online action RPG developed by Redbana US Studio, at Hellgate’s Korean official website last Friday (April 17th).




Tower Bridge is not the first new map HanbitSoft released. The company already revealed screen shots of Training Ground and Maritime Museum on April 10th. All revealed maps will be included in Hellgate: London’s 1.5Patch later this year.

The released screen shots show the disrupted Tower Bridge which also has a distinct vive from the other maps. HanbitSoft announced that as of 1.5Patch, Hellgate will have each act very unique environment. Training Ground, Maritime Museum, and Tower Bridge give out different atmosphere, which will allow players to enjoy freshness each time they enter to a different map.

So when are you going to Turn on RedBana's Server Equipment? I mean, for god sakes it is only 12 minutes from the original Flagship building. For those who havent read this is what you will get if you accually contact Namco!

Namco's attitude might turn around fast if they start thinking the North American rights are worth money again as a result of Hanbit's work. I'm sure Hanbit would LOVE a foothold in the major English speaking markets that they could leverage their other games from, but it would be silly of them to pay for hosting - and it's not cheap - knowing that as soon as it starts to turn a profit Namco can say "BTW, you can't do that" and take over the operation. Hopefully the two companies will be able to cut a deal, the current situation benefits neither.

On another issue - Janelle, if I buy a Korean copy of HG:L would I be able to connect to your English langauge servers?

Namco Denies having any rights to HGL...

Andrew -

You cannot connect to the Korean/English language servers unless you have a Korean social security number. It's not something that Hanbitsoft does to be mean - it's a result of Korea's own laws.

Needless to say, the above hasn't stopped others from "borrowing" Korean SSNs from their friends or making numbers up, but identity theft is still identity theft. I suggest you think long and hard before you decide to pursue playing the Korean Hellgate London. It's only a video game, after all.

Andrew said...

Thanks Stephen. I was asking if there was a legitimate method, I'm not going to fake an ID.

Stephen said...

No problem Andrew; I wish there were a legitimate way to play the Korean version. Alas, unless you meet someone from Korea who is willing to let you use their KSID or become a Korean citizen yourself... there really are no other options ATM. :(

From what i understand, the holders of the US and Europe IPs are not willing to sell them. Is there any other way to get HG:L back to the US and Europe regions without violating the rights being held? I'm sure there are a few legal hoops they are capable of "jumping" through.
