Hellgate's coming to Steam! Maybe, kind of...
The original Hellgate: London was a dark, moody, post-apocalpytic demon-infested shoot-'em-up that received minor acclaim in 2007, but bugs and a so-so multiplayer implementation doomed it after less than two years. It rose from the dead as a free-to-play game in 2011, but that didn't really get much attention.
Now it's back on Steam, or at least it might be on Steam if enough people approve of it, because that's how Greenlight works. The thing is... there isn't much out there in terms of announcements, press releases, or anything like that. Just... boop, here's Hellgate! Again! Can we be on Steam? Please?
It's called "Hellgate Global" in the Greenlight description, which doesn't seem to appear anywhere on the game's official site. And I know I saw the trailer before, maybe in the original game from seven years ago. So is this some kind of honest-to-goodness relaunch or is it just an attempt to get on Steam after three years of being mostly anonymous?
