Crystal Dynamics wants you to choose which new character pack comes first for Lara Croft

Crystal Dynamics wants to know via Twitter which DLC character pack Lara Croft and the Guardian of Light players want first.

You have two choices.

Kane & Lynch or Raziel & Kain. Whichever one is chosen, the DLC is expected to land sometime before the end of the year.

We pick the later because we love the Legacy of Kain series.

If you’d like to see how Raziel & Kain have fared over the years, check out the hacked video for the PC version of the game posted over on YouTube.

Hit the link up top to make your choice known to the devs. Don’t disappoint us, or you’ll face The Elder God’s wrath.

Thanks, Joystiq.

    One of my favorite games for the Playstation, or the shortest, most dissapointing game of 2010? Hmm…

    Of course it’s going to be RAZIEL and KAIN.

    Seriously… These two idiots (Kane and Lynch)? Pff pathetic.

    I wanted to say “Of course Raziel, duh.” But Kane & Lynch in a game like this? That would be freakin’ awesome.

    I don’t care about the order, if we get them both.

    Oh and btw. they should totally make a new Soul Reaver game. Or Remake the first one.

    They could release a game similar to this, but starring Raziel and Kain as the main characters, instead of costumes. That would work. Let’s just hope they are trying to tell us something here.

    A LoK reboot would be awesome. Harping on here, but I’d love it if they went back to the original single-game plan they had and used that story, because as much as I loved LoK, all the time travel bollocks started to fuck with the story way too much from SR2 onwards, plus they never had level design as fucking epic as SR1 in the other 3 games they made.

    We all want more Legacy of Kain, but we’ll probs never get it. I think it’s all a little too smart these days, publishers want all games to be dumb remember.

    The chances of an LoK sequel will be pretty much a no-no seeing though the story ends in Blood Omen 2(The sequel to LoK defiance )
    I suppose the creative team could think of an additional bollocks storyline.

    A prequel yes…since Amy Hennig fucked off to Naughty Dog would a sequel or prequel be any good without her production and direction skills?

    I for one would love another LoK been pining for an announcement for years

    @14, er, no, Blood Omen 2 (released in 2002) was not a sequel to Defiance (released in 2003), Blood Omen 2 is an alternative history for Kain that arises as a result of all the time travel bollocks in Soul Reaver 2.

    The ending to Defiance suggests that the newly purified Kain will go on to save Nosgoth from the fate his younger self would consign it to, which is why we’ve been expecting a game to conclude the elder Kains story arc.

    @13, I hope you’re wrong bro.

    Well, Janos Audron was captured at the end of defiance

    Janos Audron was held captive in the doomsday weapon in LoK BO2 (which was by rights, set years after Janos’ death) How do you explain why he is still alive?

    In Defiance, Raziel returns the Heart of Darkness to Janos’ body, bringing him back to life. After his revival, the ancient vampire took Raziel to the Citadel of the Ancients. Soon after their arrival, the younger Kain of that time line made his fateful decision, and the Pillars collapsed. The Hylden Lord was then able to take control of Janos’ body. Raziel is defeated by the Hylden-possessed Janos, who then leaves the wraith seeping into the Spectral Realm as he leaves. This leads into the events of Blood Omen 2, in which Janos is an unwilling tool of the Hylden’s scheme to dominate Nosgoth.

    @16, right, that explains how BO2 came to be, but it doesn’t resolve the story because any way you look at it the pillars are still corrupt, the Elder God still lives and Kain ain’t finished.

    @17
    Granted.
    The Elder God, who warns Kain he is immortal and will return, remarking “and on that inevitable day! Your wretched, stagnant soul, will finally be MINE!”

    But then again how many times did Dr. Claw say to Inspector Gadget “I’ll get you next time, Gadget! Next Time!”
    But he never fucking did and neither did Inspector Gadget apprehend his arch-nemesis.

    If there was/is a continuation of the story they’d have to do it without Tony Jay (Elder God) since he died in 2006.

    Allegedly, Crystal Dynamics were six months into production of a game called Legacy of Kain – The Dark Prophecy (A proposed sequel to defiance) before the project was cancelled by Eidos.

    “in a recent interview with Siliconera, Crystal Dynamics were asked about the possibility of the franchise making a return and their response has a strong smell of the obvious secrecy but could be what fans of the game want to hear. Raziel, we await your HD return to form. Here’s the direct question and response:

    Siliconera: What can you say about The Legacy of Kain franchise?

    Crystal Dynamics: (Darrell Gallagher, Head of Studio): “I’ll answer that one. We see the fan feedback on Legacy of Kain. There’s nothing we can talk about right now, but we can tell fans we definitely hear it”

    http://thegamingliberty.com/index.php/2010/06/10/rumour-is-a-new-legacy-of-kain-in-the-works/

    Just checked on Simon Templeman’s IMDB page. Due to the recent(ish)layout change… you can’t see current or unfinished projects like you used to.

    But some people are convinced that a script for the new Kain game is already “out there”

    Raziel and Kain FTW! They should really bring back the Blood Omen / Soul Reaver series. Those were the t!ts.

    Bit like choosing between a rancid, gone off burger and a glorious four course meal, isn’t it?

    Kane and Lynch for sure….

    They’re the ones from the amazing Playstation 1 & 2 series right?

    Raziel has a girl(lara?) voice :|
    Damn, blood omen’s kain is one of my favorite characters ever.
    I never liked too much raziel and soul reaver games.

    “They’re the ones from the amazing Dreamcast series right?”

    fixed.

    /e: just asked wiki, it says that there’s only one Soul Reaver game on DC? WTH? I thought both soul reaver games were released on DC Oo

    #23 3 years ago
  24. Blerk

    Only the first Soul Reaver was on the DC, wasn’t it? And even that was just a PSOne conversion.

    But… but… but… I’m not going to fight with the DC fans this time, because we can all agree that Soul Reaver was ‘the fucking nuts’. And I want MORE! Specifically Soul Reaver, the Legacy of Kain games were great too but Raziel pwned.
