A history of the metropolis devastated and invaded by powerful hell forces. Among the survivors, there are The Templar, a group of followers of ancient rites. They use powerful, futuristic weaponry mixed with artifacts and magic. As a player, you are one of them and your goal is, of course, to destroy the evil powers. Hellgate combines various game styles, there are quest systems, spells and skill points and fast first person shooter action. Also, there is a system of randomized events, places and items which makes the game unique. Definitely an atmospheric and interesting title.

London 2038: Status as of 12/27/2016

Hey guys! It has been an exciting 3 weeks since my last dev diary. We have had our hands full working on London 2038 and celebrating the holidays with our families :)

I mentioned in my last update that London2038.com would be coming soon; this is still the case--look out for an announcement of the new website with dedicated places for information on the project.

There are some updates on what has been fixed and new bugs discovered, but first, a little home movie I made...

Shulgoth Eats Lead

All of us have been hard at work addressing the issues that were known at the time of the last dev diary. Many small issues were fixed since then due to the hard work and dedication of our development team. Some additional issues have also been discovered since then as well, mainly due to our ability to test in a more in-depth way.

What Now Works In Addition to Previous Update

  • Party members' health displays properly
  • Power/shield regeneration rate is now correct
  • Inspection no longer crashes the game and works as expected
  • Auction house (Consignment House) now functions correctly
  • AI pathing is now correct
  • Achievements/achievement bonuses function correctly
  • Stonehenge essences (beast, spectral, etc) now drop correctly from bosses
  • Abyss-era rings can be purified in the Transmogrifying Cube
  • Zone portals now use the correct text color (allowed, quest, locked, etc)
  • Party finding/party listing system now works correctly


What Doesn't Work/Is Being Worked On

  • Data issues causing some remaining problems
  • Issue with certain skills causing NPC lag (see video of Shulgoth above when the summoner uses Meatshield)
  • Issue causing occasional crashes related to merchants and items
  • Party member inspection from the party member portrait does not function
  • Embankment Redoubt quest cannot be completed due to bug in handling AI for the NPC soldiers in the quest.
  • Some item affixes are show twice but applied only once
  • Some specific named monster hunt quests cause issues in parties
  • Item linking has known bugs and is being fixed/improved

What's Next

We are at a point where a few bugs remain which can cause the game to be instantly unplayable and are working hard to fix them. This means we are not quite to an Alpha state stability-wise, but at the same time our server is playable enough to get some productive testing done. So going forward, our main goals are to address the remaining known game breaking bugs, and attempt to thoroughly test the server in preparation for a small closed Alpha stage. I will update the community as soon as we are ready to take applications to become Alpha testers.

We are also working on strengthening our tooling and processes as we work towards accommodating more and more players as we expand our testing efforts.

As always, we can't promise that there will be enough progress to share every week, but we will keep the community updated as milestones are reached on the project. As always, you can stop by Discord with any questions, and also please see the FAQ here for common questions.

Something to note: London 2038 will NEVER cost money, will NEVER have anything for purchase, will NEVER have a subscription, will NEVER have a cash shop or money transactions of any kind, PERIOD. This is a passion project for fans, by fans, and has 0 money involved. We are all volunteers, and we want everyone to enjoy the game we remember with out any cost EVER. No one will EVER make money off of this project.

What's your opinions on a HGL type game? Don't say Dead space coz it lacks action and loot...any suggestions? I still play HGL as it offers a good balance of action and loot

I had fun with the game when I did play it, but I never finished it and I don't remember why. ( I think it was due to I felt it to be a little repetitive but I cant remember for sure. )

Perhaps one of these days I will play it again on my new comp..

One thing though I am glad I never went too far into, the online portion. I stayed away from it when I learned about some things for the most part. ( Besides that most players I ran into annoyed me )

The game DONT suck! The only bug that can be anoying is the going under the floor thing....but we don't stall under it...we are teleported to the door we passed throught.
GO INGENEER!

It's sad they didn't made it throught the economique thing.......for the the online thing.......leaves Steam to ask them if they want to host the online server...
