Bane Of Kain: Nosgoth Closed Beta Begins Today

By Nathan Grayson on February 27th, 2014.

I think the bloodsplosion just made him mad

Kain might be off raising, um, someone else in the distant reaches of who-knows-where, but that doesn’t mean his legacy can’t live on. Kinda. Nosgoth is a solid-looking free-to-play multiplayer shooter set in the Legacy of Kain universe, and it offers asymmetrical vampire battling galore. But is it actually coming along well, or is Square Enix just trying to shove a square peg into a Kain-shaped hole? If you’re starved for both souls and information, Nosgoth’s closed beta is about to get up and running. The best news of all? You can join in! Maybe.

It turns out hearing the name Nosgoth over-and-over-and-over is enough to make me lose it. After the fifth time I heard it spoken in this trailer, I got the the giggles and had to rewatch to get the details. I’m almost embarrassed that I can be so easily amused, but it is a silly word. That second pass gleamed the relevant information, and I watched a third-time to make sure I hadn’t been hearing things the second time: Psyonix has been secretly developing a free-to-play PVP multiplayer action game set in the Legacy Of Kain universe. Human teams will fight Vampires teams. Guh?
