The once prominent Legacy of Kain series is about to be dragged out of mothballs for the first time since 2003. Publisher Square Enix this week revealed that the new game will be known as Nosgoth in reference to the magical world in which the series is set. The publisher also released a promotional video in support of this chaotic action sequel.
In a major departure for the series, the new offering will be a multiplayer only affair. Will this rob the game of its identity? Not according to George Kelion of Square Enix, who claims that “Nosgoth draws upon the thousands of years worth of lore and conflict at the heart of the Legacy of Kain mythos” to build a “sense of place and history”.
Development duties on this PC exclusive have been assigned to Psyonix, a team best known for its contract work on games from other developers, including high profile projects like Gears of War and XCOM: Enemy Unknown.
Nosgoth will be free-to-play. A release date is yet to be announced.
