Free-to-play online multiplayer title set in the 'Legacy of Kain' universe.

Today, Square Enix and Psyonix, showed off the first footage for their "bloodthirsty, competitive online multiplayer title" set in the 'Legacy of Kain' universe.

From Square Enix, "Nosgoth is defined by fast and brutal melee versus ranged gameplay. You’ll fight in team-based multiplayer battles as one of two warring factions – the Humans or the Vampires. The Humans are merciless hunters trained in an arsenal of lethal ranged weaponry and specialized devices. The Vampires, meanwhile, are vicious predators that rely on ferocious up-close attacks augmented by their innate inhuman abilities."

Much is being made about an attempt to balance ranged vs melee combat styles, and developer Psyonix is quit to point to their experience working on 'XCOM: Enemy Unknown,' 'Gears of War,' and 'Mass Effect 3.'

Square Enix is currently looking for players to play a closed beta of 'Nosgoth,' and those interested can apply here.
