Square Enix finally unveils its multiplayer experience based on Legacy of Kain.
Square-Enix has finally revealed the Legacy of Kain based free to play PVP game Nosgoth, which will be heading to PC. Check out the announcement trailer above.
Developed by Psyonix for release on PC via Steam, Nosgoth will see humans taking on vampires with the former using special equipment and hunting tools while the latter relies on close combat and supernatural powers. Gameplay will be from a third person perspective.
In a statement on the official blog, the developer has stated that, “At Psyonix, we’re passionate about team-based multiplayer games. When Square Enix approached us to help create Nosgoth, we were excited to use our experience working on titles like Bulletstorm, Gears of War, Mass Effect 3, and Unreal Tournament 2004 to deliver something unique in the multiplayer genre.
“We made the decision to go to free-to-play to break down barriers and let as many players into the game as possible. One of the key goals has been to create a fair experience that doesn’t penalise players who don’t spend money in the game, as such Nosgoth doesn’t include items, weapons or abilities that are inherently better (aka supremacy goods).”
