Hellgate: London Singleplayer-Patch verfügbar

Der erste Singleplayer-Patch für Hellgate: London kann mittlerweile über die integrierte Auto-Update-Funktion runtergeladen werden. Der Patch portiert fast alle Veränderungen des "Multiplayer-Patches 0" auf den Einzelspieler-Modus bis auf die expliziten Multiplayer- und Abonnenten-Features (Gilden, PvP, Hardcore Modus) sowie die Halloween-Inhalte.

Change-Log "Patch 0"

New Online Features and Improvements

These features and adjustments impact all online players.

Player vs. Player Mode

  • Players can Duel or elect to play Free-for-All PvP
  • Players can initiate a duel by right-clicking the portrait of the group member they wish to duel and selecting the "Duel" option if they are both in an adventuring area. Players can also use the /duel [playername] command to initiate a duel.
  • Players may also toggle their PvP mode through the /pvp command
  • While PvP is activated, the player may be attacked and harmed outside of Stations by any other group members who are also flagged for PvP

Elite Mode

  • The demons are tougher, deal out more damage, move faster, travel in larger groups, and have more champions at the ready. Numerous tweaks to the overall balance and progression of the game make this an extremely challenging mode
  • Elite Mode is unlocked only to subscribers who have also beaten the game at least once. Once the mode is unlocked, new characters may be designated as Elite through a toggle in the character creation screen


These are meant to be long-term goals for all players. Players start with a few new goals in their Achievement Log (default hotkey is "J") and can unlock more as they play


  • While only subscribers can start one, anyone may join a guild
  • Guild members can communicate in their own private channel using /gchat
  • Guild creation and management is covered in the Subscriber Features section of this document

NPC Tweaks
In general, the vocal responses given by NPCs have been tuned so that they tend more towards the serious and "normal" in nature

We've added a large amount of additional details on the people and places in the game through gossip told by various NPCs in the world. NPCs with some gossip to tell will have a purple (" ") icon above their heads

Tuned Game Progression

  • Level and monster progression is now much more thematic in nature. While this does not affect the overarching layout of the world map, it does make each act feel more defined and focused
  • Bigger levels in Nightmare Mode increases the time players spend in each area, giving the game a more expansive feel at higher difficulty levels
  • Several new level varieties have been added
  • Players will now receive a completion message upon finishing an Act
  • The experience required to level between levels 30 and 50 has been rebalanced

Interface Features

  • There is now a "Hide Offline" button
  • The Chat Window has been updated with 4 tabs for different channels: Global, Local, Party, and Guild

Subscriber Features
These are new features available to our subscription members right away. PLEASE NOTE these represent just the tip of the iceberg as to what we're working on and what you'll be getting. Check the Hellgate: London website for announcements and details on upcoming patches and features.

Special storylines, quests, NPCs and events designed to celebrate special seasons or provide different themed challenges. Some of these take place every so often, while others only happen at a specific time of year.

Halloween (October 31 - November 4)
  • Zombot - A special pet just for the All Hallows' celebration. This amalgam of meat and metal is sure to frighten and delight those players that are willing to put in the time to find all the necessary pieces in order to construct him.
  • All Hallows" Visage " A Unique Helm that has not only very special properties, but as well a fierce look unlike any other helm in the game.
  • All Hallows" Treats " Delicious and devious, these different delights do everything from temporarily boosting stats to altering the appearance of the devourer.
  • All Hallows" Quests " There are a pair of special quests available, including one that is repeatable for continuous fun.
  • Nemo, Master of Festivities - This special NPC can first be found in Covent Garden Station.

Guild creation and Management

  • While only subscribers can start one, anyone may join a guild
  • Subscribers may create a guild by purchasing and using a Guild Herald, available from vendors
  • Guild leaders can invite new members through the Guild panel (default hotkey is "G") or through the "invite to guild" button on the radial menu activated by right-clicking on a player in their buddy list or in-person
  • Guild members can communicate in their own private channel using /gchat

Expanded Stash
Each character gets an extra 6x8 section in their storage locker.

Mein Spiel hat keine automatische Patch-Funktion...hat wohl einer vergessen mit reinzupacken. Aber spaß bei seite: Völlig zufällige Abstürze alle 20 minuten im SP-Modus, Auto-Update erscheint bei mit nicht und ein simpler Download-Patch wird nicht angeboten. Toller Start für Flagship. Ich bin abgrundtief enttäuscht.

Einfach mal an die eigene Nase fassen...
Schau dir mal im offiziellen HG:L-Forum die Bugreports zum Singeplayer-Patch an. Leute, die nicht mehr ins Spiel kommen weil das Menü plötzlich verschwunden ist, kaputte Files, Tore, die nicht mehr betreten werden können, etc. Der Bugreport-Thread hat inzwischen 18 Seiten.
Sooo toll ist der Patch nun auch wieder nicht. Ich durfte das Spiel gestern abend neu installieren, weil mein Menü verschwunden war. Und beim Tor "Admiralty Arch" komm ich wieder zurück in die Station und kann deswegen eine Mini-Quest nicht beenden. In der Millenium-Schlacht sinkt meine FPS-Zahl auf 1, ich kann diese Story-Quest nicht beenden, weil ich dort immer sterbe. Abgesehen vom Menü-Bug sind das also mindestens ZWEI Gameplay-Fehler, die ich dir nennen kann.
Nur weil es bei dir funktioniert heißt das noch lange nicht, dass es bei anderen auch so ist.
Aber irgendwie bin ich das bei FSS und ping0 gewohnt. Der letzte Mythos-Patch hat auch teilweise Fehler beseitigt und doch einige Sachen kaputtgemacht, die vorher funktioniert haben.
Meine Empfehlung: Nicht patchen, sondern warten, bis wahrscheinlich nächste Woche der neue Patch kommt.

Nein spass, nur zur info, patches können das spiel auch verschlimmbessern, siehe bf2, oder c&c 3. Am anfang freut man sich noch auf patches, und verbesserungen, aber dann tritt ea irgendwas am kopf und es kommen balance änderungen die total imba sind, bis irgendwann das spiel verpatcht ist (neue bugs etc.). Aber ist ja nicht weiter schlimm, denn dann kommt ein addon, wo ja alles besser sein soll.

Du musst schon nachdenken, man sagt im Allgemeinen, dass in solchen Multiplayerspielen maximal ein Drittel der gesamten Spieler gleichzeitig online ist.
Wenn du nun bedenkst, 16k aufm EU Server, aufm US Server dürften es nochmal c.a 30k sein, wenn nicht sogar mehr.
16k x 3 = 48k
30k x 3 = 90k
Über 100k.
Dazu bedenk noch, dass etliche Spieler lieber im Single Player spielen.
Also meiner Meinung nach reicht das locker :>
Bei Diablo2 waren auch maximal ~150k Spieler online, natürlich, wenn man das x3 rechnet, kommt man auf 450k, aber abwarten, Hellgate wird schon noch.
Derzeit hat das Spiel im MP nicht mal Beta Status, und trotzdem spielen es schon so viele :)
Außerdem, was hat das mit Halo3 zu tun?
Der gute alte "Äpfel mit Birnen Vergleich".
Vergleich Hellgate Spielerzahlen im MP mit Titan Quest, Diablo2, Sacred, Loki, und was weiß ich was. Und dann wirst du feststellen, dass Hellgate top dabei ist in diesem Genre.
Ego Shooter haben halt ne etwas größere Fanbase als Hack´n Slays. Vor allem Halo3, da wurde den Shops ja die Bude eingerannt in USA 8O
