“Nosgoth” Is A Multiplayer Game Set In The Legacy of Kain Universe


Square Enix will be publishing a game called Nosgoth that is set in the same universe as the Legacy of Kain series, but is not a traditional Legacy of Kain title, Square Enix have confirmed to VG247.


“Nosgoth exists and is in active development, but is not a traditional Legacy of Kain action-adventure game”, Square Enix community manager George Kelion said to the website. He added: “Nosgoth is set in the same universe as previous LoK games, but on a different branch to the Blood Omen and Soul Reaver series. The community should not be thinking of Nosgoth in terms of a single-player experience.”


Additionally, Kelion also confirmed to Eurogamer that Nosgoth is not being developed by Crystal Dynamics, the studio that worked on the previous games in the series.


Nosgoth was noticed listed in the Steam database last month. Kelion clarified that Square Enix wanted to put a statement out in order to give people context. He also clarified that the game would not be at E3 and will be revealed at a later point.
