Hellgate: London - London 2038 Live in Open Beta

A couple weeks ago, London 2038 - an unofficial multiplayer revival mod for Hellgate: London - received a major patch preparing it for open beta. And sure enough, the beta is now live, allowing you to revisit Hellgate: London’s multiplayer in its 2007-2009 iteration.

The previous patch handled most of the changes already and as a result, the actual beta patch notes aren’t at all extensive. So instead, here’s a quick overview of the project itself:

London 2038 is a completely free, non-commercial, fan-made, volunteer-run private server project to bring back classic Hellgate: London multiplayer as it was in 2007-2009. We are currently in open beta.

We are not the owners or copyright holders of Hellgate: London! We are just fans running a server which allows players who own the game to experience multiplayer again. We do not distribute the game, and we absolutely cannot encourage, advise, or facilitate piracy! You must own a copy of the game to play our mod.

London 2038 is free to play, and involves no money at all. We don’t make any revenue or profit from the project, and run it simply as fans of the game.

All of the 2038 team missed the amazing, ahead-of-its time ARPG Hellgate: London and wanted to bring it back to the passionate, dedicated, and friendly community the game has fostered after all these years.

The server is under active development. Check the development diaries for the latest news, come say hi on the forums, review the FAQ, and keep your eyes peeled for news!
