Enjoy playing a new one The legacy of kain game at some point in the indefinite future? Well, Crystal Dynamics is doing a survey looking for opinions on where a hypothetical sequel in the series could go. They are also checking to see if anyone is preparing to remake or remake previous games, such as Legacy Of Kain: Soul Reaver. If you don’t like the sound of a sarcastic co-op beat set in Nosgoth’s vampire kingdom then you might want to hear your thoughts.
Crystal Dynamics has launched a fairly in-depth questionnaire about how players feel about the Legacy Of Kain series. It covers what you think is important in the game itself, who is the better protagonist other than Kain and Raziel, and what the world of Nosgoth will be like. The studio also seems to be testing the waters around vampire games in general, raising a lot of questions about what makes a good game. Probably blood and fangs.
Interestingly, among the questions from Crystal Dynamics was a question about how you responded when announcing the new Legacy Of Kain game. They follow up with that by asking players if they want it to be a remake, sequel, reboot, or remake. Along with these questions are some questions around the genre of a new game (Metroidvania, MOBA and survival are options) and whether it should be single player or multiplayer. If you’ve ever wanted a Legacy Of Kain visual novel, now’s your chance to show it off.
There hasn’t been a new Legacy Of Kain game in a long time – almost twenty years, in fact. The last time was Defiance in 2003. Multiplayer replay Nosgoth was announced in 2013, but managed only one open beta that started in 2015 and ran for just over a year. Some of the series are still available on Steam and GOG, but Square Enix has temporarily pulled the first Soul Reaver from sale. However, Crystal Dynamics was purchased by Embracer Group earlier this year, and Embracer has express interest in reviving the series after a long period of time.
It looks like Crystal Dynamics is taking the idea of a new game in the Legacy Of Kain series seriously. What that will be, however, we will have to wait and see. You can take the survey yourself here.
