Square Enix has today officially taken the wraps off of Nosgoth, a new “bloodthirsty, free-to-play, competitive online multiplayer title set in the Legacy of Kain universe.”
Currently in development at Psyonix in collaboration with Square Enix, Nosgoth is a team-based Human VS Vampire multiplayer game for Steam and PC. What makes Nosgoth different, says Psyonix, is the third-person ranged versus melee combat.
According to the developer, humans in the game will use “an arsenal of devastating ranged weaponry and specialised equipment,” but the Vampires will instead attack using “visceral close-up melee attacks augmented by their inhuman abilities.”
Players will need to use strategy, communication and teamwork in order to succeed. Unlockable items, perks and abilities are also promised for both sides of the skirmish. Here’s the debut trailer for Nosgoth:
