Legacy Of Kain: Nosgoth Is Third-Person, Not MOBA

The much teased next Legacy Of Kain game is happening, and here are a few details on it.

There's been sporadic bits of info teased about the next Legacy Of Kain game, which has caused fans quite a bit of heartbreak. First it was cancelled, then leaked info was found but now it seems it is happening. (Crystal Dynamics, Legacy of Kain: Soul Reaver, Legacy of Kain: Soul Reaver 2, Nosgoth, PC, Square Enix)

""It’s a competitive online multiplayer experience"

Thanks for ruining one of my favourite single-player franchises ever. One that shines with its brilliant writing, charismatic characters, immersive universe. Thanks for turning all this into an online game.

Oh even better.

"closest comparison is probably Unreal Championship 2"

Woow, sounds so much like everybody's been asking for regarding the LoK franchise. Thanks again.

Competitive online multiplayer and Legacy of Kain do not mix at all. The guy who's gonna make this game deserves to have his soul ripped out and his blood sucked dry.

*shrug*

What did you expect? The people responsible for making the Legacy of Kain games have either moved on to other things, or died. All it is now is a game.

What we have here is a generic new IP being branded with the Legacy of Kain name in an effort to increase awareness and, therein, sales.

This is said as f%#& yet true This my all timer right here. Every franchise I fall in love with dies or leaves me. They say "its not you its me" or " your smothering me and we need space" and I never see them again. If i do see them they've gotten fat or are completely hideous and with someone else. original Mega Man, Devil May Cry, now LoK. To protect future games Im just ganna have to go back to hating everything to avoid franchise desecration. WWWWWHHHHHHYYYY!!!!

Given that everything that Eidos touches at the moment turns to gold, I reckon this is going to be something special.

As if dumbing down tomb raider into some bastard love child of tomb raider and uncharted but not quite as good as either was enough.

They got to take one of my favourite franchises of all time and take a dump on it with this online tripe. No thanks.

WTF ... Tomb Raider was awesome.

Yep...

Sounds like a POS to me. I wont buy it. Or play it.

Wouldve been better off either doing a full reboot, or a true sequel to Defiance. Developers who do this kinda crap...should be horsewhipped.

I think this is a perfect example of how some game developers just absolutely refuse to listen to the community. Given how often this happens, and how often it leads to disastrous results... one has to wonder why it's still so common.

I can't wait to see what it becomes.

RIP Legacy of Kain franchise.

Sigh.....
hazelamy  +   707d ago
ok, Legacy of Kain as competitive multiplayer?

not sure if that will work.

i'll reserve final judgement till i see the finished article, but i fully expect this will bear no relation to the original game series other than the name and some character models in game.

who knows it could be good, but it won't be LoK.

I hope I can use a Kar 98K with Kain. That would be badass.

Hopefully Raziel can use guns too...
