Flagship Studios has announced that its PC online game Hellgate: London will receive its first content update on January 21st, 2008, expanding the game's world beyond London to the areas surrounding Stonehenge. The Stonehenge Chronicles update adds open, outdoor wilderness areas intended to stand in contrast to the main game's setting in the streets and sewers of London. The update is comprised of three different sections: The Caste Caves, Moloch's Lair and The Wild. The Caste Caves unlocks four dungeons for each enemy caste, and each tasks players with defeating a spectral overlord. Completing the Caste Caves will allow players to access Moloch's Lair, wherein they confront the demon Moloch for unique items. The Wild contains three mini-raid areas that progress in difficulty, requiring full-sized parties. Additionally, the update adds improvements to game UI, a "large number" of skill balance changes, and a PvP dueling arena. Finally, Hellgate: London subscribers will now have the option to pay for their subscriptions via PayPal and PayByCash.
