Legacy of Kain: Nosgoth is a multiplayer action videogame developed exclusively for Windows PC by Psyonix and published by Square Enix. The game is a spin-off of the Legacy of Kain saga, and takes place in its fictional universe. Even though the other installments of the series are purely action-adventure titles, Nosgoth relies on a PvP (Player versus Player) system that offers fast paced matches with different gameplay mechanics for each team.
Matches take place within enclosed arenas with different settings. There are two rounds in which players alternate between humans and vampires; teams will play as one class in the first round and then they will swap classes for the second one. There are two game modes available: Team Deathmatch and Siege, each one with its own objective.

The aim in Team Deathmatch is to make as many kills as possible within the time limit or reach a certain number of kills. The final score is calculated using both round kills, one being the winning team the one with the highest total score. In Siege mode, humans must capture and hold several locations on the map to earn points. Vampires have to stop humans from achieving this by getting the highest number of kills. The team with the highest score after both matches wins.
Choose Your Side
Legacy of Kain: Nosgoth offers two different playstyles, one for each side. Vampires have stunning physical abilities such as wall climbing, blinding attacks, flying and huge jump attacks that remind us of Left4Dead’s Hunters. Vampires don’t have any weapon, but they can use their claws and supernatural abilities to fight. There are four clan members available in Nosgoth: Deceivers of Clan Zephonim, Reavers of Clan Dumahim, Tyrants of Clan Turelim and Sentinels of Clan Razielim.
Humans are less spectacular physically, but they can use various lethal weapons to fight against the vampire hordes, such as bows and arrows, crossbows, flamethrowers and even a grenade launcher. They have special abilities such as creating walls of flame or raining a shower of arrows down upon their enemies. You are free to play as the sisters of Anacrothe (Alchemist class), The Ironguard Order (Hunter class) and Watchers of Dark Eden (Scout class).
