Theres one thing that i dont get about hellgate, why is London the only place thats being attacked? You would think that the evil demon things would attack other countrys or atleast other citys in the london area.
No, the game is still being worked on. Odds are it won't be out for a few more months, at least. Don't know if it'll need DX10 or not, but I HIGHLY doubt it. I say this because there probably won't be a bit enough market early on to satiate EA's needs for distribution. Same with Spore. But the main reason for it not being released yet is probably because they're still working on it.
Oh yeah, you probably won't need a DX10 card, either. My card is rated for a previous DX version, and it runs most games fine, as well as allowing DX9c to run fine. Might have lost some features though, not sure on that part.
