Hellgate closed beta keys available

Free-to-play relaunch begins.

Closed beta test keys for Hellgate are now available to North American and European audiences, T3 Entertainment has announced.

Nab a key from the Hellgate website and you'll get into the free-to-play revival of the once dead MMO. The closed beta is scheduled to run from 3rd-5th June.

Developed by former Blizzard employees, Hellgate first launched back in November 2007 picking up a 7/10 from Eurogamer.

However, it struggled to make money from the get-go, with publisher Namco pulling the plug in February 2009. South Korean distributor Hanbitsoft then secured the worldwide publishing rights back in January 2010 and set to work on the relaunch.

A new trailer is below.
