New statistics have been released for the re-launched MMO Hellgate Global showing a few interesting trends.

40 per cent of all player characters are female, according to the new stats.

Currently the Marksman class is most popular with new players as the most created class, but it's unlikely to progress.

On the other hand, the Guardian class is the most progressed class.

Female Guardians are more highly levelled than their male counterparts, while male Marksmen are the least levelled class in the game, T3fun reports.

Hellgate Global is the re-launch of the Hellgate MMO originally designed by former Blizzard employees. The game shut its servers down in the west in 2009 but continued to be active in Asia before re-releasing last year in the US and Europe.
