After seeing the gameplay trailer, i dont know what to think.. im not a fan of top down games like baldur's gate, commandos and fallout (I know those are great, but it's just not my type), ill try to reserve judgement till I play a demo. And the 1st person shooting the turret looked pretty boring.
You need to be a an "Elite" subscriber to play the full arenas and ladder.
10$/month.. or a one time fee of ONLY 149.99$! (pre orders only lol?) Elite players get the updates (monsters/items etc). The freeloaders get squat lol.
As someone on gametrailers said, the Hellgate and EA logo match well..
ill wait for a demo.
