on September 26, 2013 1:20 PM

If you’re a huge Legacy of Kain fan like myself, you may be excited to hear that Square Enix and developer Psyonix have finally revealed video content for their upcoming multiplayer game, Nosgoth.

Originally registered as “War For Nosgoth,” Nosgoth is a multiplayer game that pits humans against vampires in a bloody war.

As you can see in the video below, Psyonix’s head of studio Dave Hagewood, game director Corey Davis, producer Sarah Hebbler and design director Bill Beacham all discuss the game, describing Nosgoth as a war where “There are no heroes.”

The video also includes some details on the clans and factions players will play as, which include the following classes:

  • Sentinel, Clan Razielim
  • Tyrant, Clan Turelim
  • Alchemist, The Red Sisters
  • Hunter, The Ironguard

Humans have a wide variety of weapons and trap-making abilities, including the Scout’s compound bow and grapple gun, the Hunter’s crossbow, the Alchemist’s hand cannon, with grenade launchers, flamethrowers and more too. Vampires can climb buildings, leap far distances, and use their physical abilities to rip apart humans: some even have additional abilities, like the Razielim’s flight.

Nosgoth will require an emphasis on teamwork, and is currently in active development, with a closed beta phase approaching that players can sign up for on the Nosgoth website. Nosgoth will be free-to-play, with the developers promising it won’t be “pay to win.” The game will be released to PCs via Steam, though when it unclear yet.
