Square Enix has launched the Open Beta of their free to play competitive team based multiplayer game called Nosgoth. To celebrate this milestone double XP will be given to everyone who plays during the Open Beta.
Go check out the open beta launch trailer of Nosgoth below:
The new trailer shows the in-depth asymmetrical gameplay played by fans from the Nosgoth community. See some of the most engaged users take on the roles of both Vampire and Human, tearing their opponents to shreds in Nosgoth’s dark and brutal world based off of the Legacy of Kain series. Note that the game is on a separate branch to both the Soul Reaver and Blood Omen series, since Silicon Knights or Crystal Dynamics are not involved in its development.
“We are incredibly passionate about the Nosgoth community and we wanted to highlight this in our Open Beta Launch trailer which was made in conjunction with actual players” said Corey Davis, Game Director. “The community is at the core of the game and it is humbling to have such a vibrant and supportive fan-base and put these players’ front and centre of our campaign.”
The launch of Open Beta is just the beginning. Nosgoth will continue to expand with new content coming soon, starting with the Summoner, a new Vampire class who call on the powers of the Underworld to command ravenous ghouls. This will soon be followed by exciting new updates such as the next Human class and new Vampire city map. Plus a new game mode, new character skins, league rankings, crafting, gifting & trading, observer tools and more.
Nosgoth is a fast paced and intense game that features two opposing factions with very different gameplay mechanics, both requiring different strategies and tactics. Within a match gamers play one round as Humans and one round as Vampires with both sides featuring a variety of classes.
• The Humans have an arsenal of devastating ranged weaponry and specialised equipment, primarily relying on ranged attacks and are most effective when staying together as group. Humans win through attrition, by wearing down the vampires at range and healing at various supply stations around the map using traps, devices, explosives and more.
• The Vampires specialise in visceral close-up melee attacks augmented by inhuman abilities, relying on speed and agility to close the gap and overpower the humans at close range. With the advantage of mobility and the ability to scale buildings, they rely on ambushing the humans and recover health by feeding off their corpses.
