Few video games have enjoyed such a frenetic buzz around their release
as the upcoming Hellgate: London, and with good reason--they haven't
had the awesome talent of former Diablo developers and executives
working on an inaugural release! Now together as Flagship Studios,
these formidable creative minds have developed a groundbreaking game
that's guaranteed to become another best-selling franchise.
Ian Edginton, the critically acclaimed author of Scarlet Traces and
the recent War of the Worlds webcomic adaptation, teams with Superman
and Preacher artist Steve Pugh to explore this demon-ravaged metropolis
in comics form. Hellgate fans will eat up the realistic flavor that both
UK creators bring to the work, and Flagship has had hands-on approval
every step of the way.
MI5 agent Lyra Darius discovers a human charnel house in the heart of
London while tailing Lord Sumerisle, the recently resigned Home Office
Minister for Internal Affairs. She's soon entangled in a bloody intrigue
with Knights Templar, and everything is building up to All Hallows Eve!
