So, there I was, about to enter the Upper Kingsway Sewers for Mac Kenzie to help him create a strange brew, when I see that Tiggs announced that the subscriptions for Hellgate: London are now live. She also went on to say that they are only live for Visa and Mastercard but they are working on the other options.

Who is Tiggs? Well, she was the Director of Community Relations for Star Wars Galaxies until she quit a couple years ago. Now she seems to be the official announcement maker on the forums and in-game.

Subscription is $9.99 a month. Now I don't know if it is worth it yet, but they promise a lot of goodies for the future. It is an MMO-like fee for a game that is not really an MMO, but I am having a lot of fun playing it.

The official benefits of subscription to Hellgate: London are after the jump.

Subscribers get massive amounts of ongoing content and access to special features, events, and benefits right away:
  • Hardcore Mode
  • Guild Creation and Management
  • Larger Stash
  • Additional Character Slots
  • Themed Events and Quests
  • Unique Event Items
  • Special Event Pets
Hellgate: London Subscribers will also get a host of new content that is designed to extend, enhance and alter the way the game is enjoyed:
  • New Levels to Explore
  • New Monsters
  • New Weapons
  • New Skills and Spells
  • New Character Classes
  • Raid-Level Areas
  • Seasonal / Themed Events and Items
  • Additional Difficulty and Game Play Modes
  • Additional PvP Modes and Rewards
  • Achievement Rewards
  • Web-based Rankings and Character Viewing
Do you Hellgate: London players out there think the benefits are worth subscribing? I think I may withhold judgment until after they clean up a few of the bugs.
