You won’t find any Kain or Raziel in this Nosgoth

Nosgoth Logo

Well, Legacy of Kain and Soul Reaver fans, I am sorry to tell you, the new game set in this universe has absolutely nothing to do with either of those franchise’s, except for being set in the same “universe”.  Nosgoth is the competitive, team-based Human vs. Vampire free-to-play multiplayer game set in the dark fantasy world of the ‘Legacy of Kain’ series. The premise is that this game takes place during the war between Humans and Vampires. You can either play as a human or a vampire, the humans are more range characters with weapons, and the Vampires are more melee focused characters, where they themselves are weapons, and their movement is also much greater (run on walls, one can fly, etc) Square Enix has released the first video showing off this new game, you can check it out below.

Nosgoth is going to be a Free To Play game, and it is going into closed beta soon. Nosgoth is being developed for the PC, no word on a console release at this time. If you want to know more, and sign up for the closed beta, you can go here, Nosgoth.

Today, in a Short announcement over on Bungie’s site, Joseph Staten the Writer/Design Director of Destiny has announced he is leaving Bungie.  In his own words:

Dear community friends,

After fifteen great years at Bungie, from the battlefields of Myth to the mysteries of Halo and beyond, I’m leaving to tackle new creative challenges. While this may come as a surprise, fear not. It’s been my pleasure building Destiny these past four years, and after the big reveal this Summer, our hugely talented team is on track for greatness. I’ll be cheering all of them, with all of you, when the game launches next year. Thank you for your support of me, and your continued support of Bungie. We couldn’t have done it without you.
Per Audacia Ad Astra!
Joseph Staten
I will be very excited to see what he ends up doing after Bungie, and we here at Geekoholics wish him all the best.
