Nosgoth is a F2P shooter/stalker set in the Legacy of Kain world

The Legacy of Kain vampire action series returns. Kind of.

Square Enix and Psyonix today revealed Nosgoth, a free-to-play third-person shooter set in the world of Kain and Raziel coming to Steam. The team-based online title lets players don the armor of humans armed with bows and blunderbusses, or use the unnatural abilities of vampires to kill and consume mortal flesh.

Nosgoth's combat is meant to be fast-paced and asymmetric: humans can use traps and ranged weapons to kill from afar, whereas vampires can leap, climb, and even fly to catch their prey by surprise.

Series creator Crystal Dynamics is not involved with Nosgoth or any other Legacy of Kain title at the moment, Square Enix told CVG in June. The game is currently accepting applications for its closed PC alpha and beta here.

    "You maniacs! You blew it up! Damn you! God damn you all to hell" - Planet of the Apes I think this quote is fitting for what Square has done to this series.

    If this game ruins the chances of a true sequel or reboot, im going to flip and not do a twist

    I enjoyed the original Legacy of Kain, and only made it through about half of Soul Reaver, but I'd be interested in more from that world. A redone Soul Reaver would be great, like Tomb Raider Anniversary, but I'm not sure about a PC shooter.

    I wonder if this just a test to check for interest of the saga. Looking at this comment section, I'll say is tragically low.
