The new update for the free-to-play online brawler Nosgoth (play free here) just added the Vanguard class to the ranks. This class joins the human faction and the official description goes as follows:
“Equipped with mighty throwing axes and a shield, the Vanguard can take more punishment than any human class that has come before, but his long range damage potential is limited. His abilities focus on using his shield to disrupt or disable enemies and secondary support powers to enhance or protect teammates.”
The patch brings some other updates, including changes to matchmaking, balancing and bug fixes. You can see all the patch notes here.
Nosgoth is currently in open beta and with the recent surfacing of videos and info from the canceled Legacy of Kain: Dead Sun game, there’s been some talk mentioning that Nosgoth is a heavily modified/upgraded version of the multiplayer mode initially envisioned for said game.
