Nosgoth is an unexpected entry in the popular Legacy of Kain series, a new chapter which was requested by thousands of fans for many years. Square Enix decided to bring the series back to life in a surprising manner – Nosgoth is a competitive, team-based free-to-play third-person PvP multiplayer game where Humans are fighting against Vampires with the grim Legacy of Kain world serving as a backdrop to the bloody struggle. Players will be able to choose between these two factions (Humans and Vampires) and use their specific skills and abilities to take the upper hand in the arenas. No prior knowledge of the series is required since Nosgoth unfolds in a new timeline.
Vampires boast supernatural abilities like flying and superior agility while humans are more specialized in the use of diverse weaponry (bows, flamethrowers…). Developer Psyonix claims that they’re trying to provide a fair experience that won’t penalize players that don’t spend money in the game and the decision to go free-to-play with Nosgoth was to get as many players enjoying the game as possible.
Nosgoth plays in the same way as games such as Forge, with different arenas (Sommerdamm is one of them, a besieged fort) where the two factions fight until one of them is annihilated.
