OVERVIEW

Nosgoth is a free-to-play competitive third person online multiplayer game set in the brutal fantasy world of the Legacy of Kain series. Named after the fictional land in which the series is set, the title allows players to either choose the role of a human or a vampire to go head-to-head against each other as these two factions are locked in a bloody struggle to control the land they both share and call home.

STORY BACKGROUND                                    

It has been millennia of conflict and hatred since humanity began their first crusade to eradicate the vampire race, and even longer since vampires were cursed with immortality and blood-thirst. Down the ages, humans have fought to destroy vampires and vampires to dominate humanity. It took the iron will of the vampire Kain to force a resolution to these conflicts, subjugating Nosgoth under his rule and establishing his unassailable. Those Humans not corralled as playthings, servants and fodder for the vampires were pushed out to the edges of the world, carving out an existence in the mountains and deep forests of Nosgoth.

Then, Kain disappeared, leaving the throne and his empire in the hands of his five remaining lieutenants. It was not long before their respective Clans began fighting among themselves. With the vampires focused on their internal squabbles, Nosgoth’s human population seized the chance to grow stronger. Cities were rebuilt, skills relearned and humanity’s power recovered to the point where they could launch a devastating attack on their vampire masters. This attack reunited the warring vampire clans in the face of a common enemy. Now, each race is pitted against the other.

FACTIONS

Nosgoth is the world of humans and vampires that are pitted against each other for supremacy and survival.

Humans

Having risen from slavery and rebuilt their civilization, humans have joined forces 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.

Vampires

Riven by jealousy and conflict, the vampire clans are fighting among themselves for the power since Nosgoth’s iron-willed emperor Kain has disappeared. Only the threat of a newly resurgent humanity launching a war of extinction against them could reunite them. Now they turn their inhuman strengths on a common enemy, to stop the genocidal march of humankind.

CLASSES

The game’s two rival factions each offer many distinct classes for players to select from, these are some of the available classes:

Reaver

As trained and talented killers, Reavers are dexterous and stealthy predators that are both calculated and poised. Swift, silent and smart, these vampires are natural hunters able to out-think and out-run the opposition.

Tyrant

Being the frontline shock troops of the vampire legions, Tyrants see themselves as true warriors and despise those who cannot compete with them on the battlefield. Their fighting style is heavy-handed and punishing, soaking up damage as they smash a straight line to their prey.

Sentinel

Dark and twisted, Sentinels are haters of humanity that have developed large wings allowing them limited flight abilities. They use this mobility to scout and strike unsuspecting enemies from above.

Scout

Professional, pitiless and armed with a precision bow, Scouts are well used to hit-and-run tactics. They are assassins skilled in picking off their enemies from the many hidden vantage points in the mountains of Dark Eden.

Alchemist

The Alchemists are cultists, sworn to an order of arcane chemists whose concoctions produce a variety of effects ranging from explosive cocktails to transformative potions. A female-only sect with a thirst for explosions, they carry a hand cannon that fires alchemical globes which detonate with devastating force on impact.

Hunter

Hunters feel at home only in the midst of battle. They have always lived, trained and fought for the eradication of every last vampire from Nosgoth. Dedicated, ruthless and skilled, these warriors live for the hunt.
