Legacy of Kain: Nosgoth is Neither an MMO or MOBA, Will be Competitive Multiplayer
And it won’t be playable offline.
There’s been a lot of speculation around Legacy of Kain: Nosgoth but not a whole lot of information to go by since the game was confirmed to be in development. Eidos community manager George Kellion sought to change that by answering and clarifying a few things about the game.
“Nosgoth is not an MMO. It’s a competitive online multiplayer experience (…with a bit of a twist). Nosgoth will not be an MMORPG and Nosgoth doesn’t look or play anything like Dota 2 or LOL [League of Legends]” adding that the “closest comparison is probably Unreal Championship 2.
“Not sure if Nosgoth is all that similar, but I suppose it’s closer to that than a traditional LoK game, an MMO or a MOBA.”
Also, for those looking for a brand new Soul Reaver single-player experience, despite Legacy of Kain being an inspiration for Nosgoth, it will not be playable offline nor will it be open world. It will debut on PC first but might head to other platforms laterr.
“We announced the game early and gave details on its context, but I’m afraid there’s gonna be a bit of a gap between now and the time we release screenshots etc. Right now, we’re all heads-down and nose to the grindstone in the preparation phase, getting all the various materials in place etc, and we want to make sure that the game feels right before speaking about it more plainly and openly.”
Stay tuned for more. It’s going to be a long wait.
