Square-Enix has lifted the lid on Nosgoth, the long-rumoured new entry in the Legacy of Kain franchise. It’s a free-to-play competitive multiplayer game for PC. Have a look after the break for the announcement trailer.

Nosgoth offers team-based humans vs. vampire action, played from a third-person perspective. Humans use weaponry and specialised equipment, while vampires boast supernatural abilities, and are dangerous in close combat. They have sharp teeth, you know.

Nosgoth is developed by Psyonix, and will be released on PC by way of Steam.

“At Psyonix, we’re passionate about team-based multiplayer games,” reads a statement on the Nosgoth blog. “When Square Enix approached us to help create Nosgoth, we were excited to use our experience working on titles like Bulletstorm, Gears of War, Mass Effect 3, and Unreal Tournament 2004 to deliver something unique in the multiplayer genre.

“We made the decision to go to free-to-play to break down barriers and let as many players into the game as possible. One of the key goals has been to create a fair experience that doesn’t penalise players who don’t spend money in the game, as such Nosgoth doesn’t include items, weapons or abilities that are inherently better (aka supremacy goods).”

You can sign on for the closed beta on the official Nosgoth website.
