The gates of Hell open on Halloween


This Halloween looks set to be something very special. Not only does Dario Argento’s Mother of Tears launch in cinemas in Italy on that day, it has now been confirmed that Flagship Studios’ launch title, Hellgate: London, will also be seeing the light of day on October 31st. Online games retailer Gamestop have put both the regular and Collector’s Edition versions up for pre-order, including a sneak preview of what we can expect to find inside the latter:

- Special Packaging and Art Design
- Hellgate: London Game 2 DVDs
- Hellgate: London Map Poster
- 106 page Dark Horse Graphic Novel
- Unique in-game pet – Mantawraith
- Bonus Disc containing:
— “Making of Hellgate: London”
— Official Game Soundtrack

Now, as pointed out at the fansite, this information has not been confirmed by anyone at Flagship, so these details should be taken with a pinch of salt. However, they are specific enough to give me hope that this is indeed the final list of extras rather than something dreamed up by a Gamestop employee in order to shift copies. In any event, it’s only $10 more expensive than the regular edition, so I’ve plumped for it… although, given past experiences with Gamestop on the Diablo II and Warcraft III Collector’s Editions, I’ll no doubt incur a heavy customs charge on it.
