When I first came upon the new MMO Nosgoth I was a little uninspired. ‘Humans vs Vampires? That hasn’t been done before.’ Then I saw those three legendary words. Legacy of Kain. I registered for the beta almost immediately. That’s right! Legacy of Kain is back and free-to-play as the new MMO Nosgoth!
A spin-off of the original series, this game takes place after the events that kick-off Soul Reaver (So in-between Raziel’s death and Resurrection?):
Nosgoth’s iron-willed Emperor Kain has disappeared, leaving his throne empty and the world in the hands of his Lieutenants. Riven by jealousy and conflict, it was not long before the Vampire Clans began fighting among themselves.
As the Vampires fought each other, Humans freed themselves from the Vampires and started anew.
Humans have joined forces from all corners of the world to exterminate the Vampires once and for all. Growing in number, their rediscovery of lost expertise in weapon-crafting and new technologies in alchemy now makes them formidable warriors.
In Nosgoth the two races have 3 classes, each with different abilities. The Vampire classes are descendants of the Lieutenants Dumah, Turel, and Raziel. Also known as Reavers, the Dumahim are silent assassins. The vampire tyrants, Turelim, like to use their hands and smash their enemies. The now devolved sentinels show only a slight resemblance to their master Raziel. The Razielim strike enemies from above and can drop them down to their deaths.
Humans use ranged tactics to keep their distance from their predators. The Watchers are master bowmen that can pick off their enemies in a well hidden area. The Red Sisters of Anacrothe are a female only cult that like to blow stuff up and with their experience in alchemy they can do just that. The Ironguard are hunters that strive to kill every last vampire on earth.
These two races will battle it out for the future of Nosgoth. To sign up for the beta go here.
