Hellgate: Back, Back! BACK!

Flagship, poor dead Flagship, made a game called Hellgate. It wasn't great, and not enough people bought it to save them from destruction. Now, however, the techno-fantasy action RPG is back, and will be relaunched in North America as a free-to-play title. No game can rest! All must live again under the banner of the undead F2P army! There's a website for the relaunch here,…

Blink And You’ll Myth It: Mythos Released

See the takeover advert that currently adorns this page like somebody's upended roast dinner? The game it's for, free-to-play Diablo-alike Mythos, has just been released. You can download the client here, and play for as long as you please with your entirely wallet stowed for the duration. What an age we live in! How far we've come.

Ongoing Rebirth Of Mythos, Euro Beta Now

Of all the ill-fated games of recent years that I have been surprised to see live again, Mythos comes close to top of the list. When Flagship spiraled into bankruptcy it looked like the game would go down with them, but it turns out that companies such as HanbitSoft, Red Bana, and Frogster had other ideas. Over the past year the game has slowly come…

Mythos Edges Ever Closer

The rebirth of Mythos - the splendid Fate-like MMO originally created to stress-test the Hellgate: London servers - still doesn't have a release date, but is looking ever-more concrete. Travis Baldree's game was the surprising highlight of Flagship Studios, before he went on to create the happiness that was Torchlight. Then it was all swallowed up in the ugly mess of Flagship's collapse, and the…

Mythos Does The Lazarus Thing

The greatest tragedy about the closure of Flagship last year - apart from a ton of good people losing their jobs, of course - was not the loss of dreary demon-basher Hellgate: London, but of the promising free-to-play Diablolike Mythos. Ditching the subscription fee was a dangerous experiment for Flagship, but Bill Roper and co never got to see if it worked. However, their sometime…

Hanbitsoft Savages Flagship. Like, Really.

The Hellgate situation appears to be descending further into Hell. Hellgate Guru have translated this story in the Korean press where their Hanbitsoft are terribly mean about partners-in-Hellgate Flagship. "Selfish"? "Irresponsible”? You wouldn't be surprised if they went on to say they smelt bad too. The reason for the rancour is that they claim while they tried to find a deal to keep Flagship going,…

Bloodbath at Flagship?

What on Earth's going on with Flagship Studios? The short answer is it's not entirely clear yet. But some newsmen are claiming that the creators of Hellgate: London, and the forthcoming Mythos, are shutting up shop, with the ownership and IP of both games transferring elsewhere. Blimey. How did it come to this?
