Here’s what Nosgoth looks like in action

2 min read


When I first heard that a brand new  Legacy of Kain game was cancelled, I curled up into a foetal ball and cried. Then I heard that it was being resurrected as an online multiplayer game.,  became a despondent sod, and gave up on the world. There’s now gameplay footage, and my sadness has turned to hate.

It’s a free-to-play online multiplayer shooter, and developer Psyonix has posted a full gameplay video showing off its Legacy of Kain multiplayer title. It’s all about a city under siege, and gives you plenty of info on the game, its classes and I can;t even pretend to be excited or enthusiastic about this.

It looks very much like a free-to-play Gears of War-esque shooter, with class abilities much like Team fortress and a heavy focus on RPG-lite style levelling up. There’s nothing at all wrong with borrowing elements from other games, but dammit, this is not the Legacy of Kain game anybody wanted. I suppose, divorcing my own opinion from it all, it doesn’t look too bad.  I have to say though that I still have no interest in this whatsoever.

Nosgoth is currently in alpha, and offers just a basic 4v4 team-deathmatch at the moment. Those who’ve been playing the alpha say it’s actually a decent game. Playing as Humans feels like you’re playing  shooter, but playing as a Vampire makes the whole game feel like a hack-and-slash RPG.

Here’s an hour long video of it, if you have that sort of time.
