HanbitSoft has announced it will launch Hellgate as a free-to-play MMO later this year.

A closed beta for the title is scheduled to run from June 3 to June 5 and details on how to participate will be announced soon.

HanbitSoft announced back in January 2010 it has acquired the rights to the Hellgate: London IP, after the closure of Flagship Studios, and continued to publish and run the title in South Korea after the game servers were shuttered in February 2009.

The publisher announced the game would go free-to-play in January 2009.
