Namco Unveil new character class For Hellgate: London.
Delvers of arcane knowledge, students of the dark arts and explorers on the edge of science, Cabalists are Hellgate: London’s spell-casters. Summoners of demons and controllers of primal forces, Cabalists use the demons’ own powers as a weapon to stave off the forces of Hell. Using "black" magic and arcane weaponry as their primary means of battling the demonic hordes, they literally fight fire with fire and blood with blood. Some have been so touched by the dark forces they wield that they even display the traits of their enemies, ever riding the razor’s edge between good and evil, control and corruption.
The spells of the Cabalist fall into three schools. Summoning spells allow the Cabalist to capture, control and even train the minions of Hell. When invoked, these powers summon demons from the netherworld and force them to fight against their kindred. Spectral spells summon dark forces from the spectral plane, which can cause colossal damage to any enemy. Transformation spells bestow the Cabalist with greater powers by modifying their appearance to mimic demonic characteristics such as horns, spikes, claws and elongated limbs.
"The Cabalist class has been a closely guarded secret since the game’s conception," said Bill Roper, CEO and co-founder of Flagship Studios. "Fans have been asking us for quite a while if we were going to have a character class that focused on spells. With the Cabalist, we know they are going to get exactly what they’ve been dreaming of."
