Nosgoth Review

Vampires and the supernatural in general hve always fascinated people. Thanks to that, numerous vampire-themed video games and movies were launched such as Legacy of Kain. However, this game didn’t include any multiplayer component, and that is where Nosgoth tries to improve on the original formula.

As you might expect, Nosgoth’s action takes place in the Legacy of Kain world, but it brings a multiplayer, team vs team battle approach in which players can take the role of either humans or vampires in the fight for supremacy.

Nosgoth ReviewThe story in Nosgoth is quite good, despite the fact that this a multiplayer arena game which usually doesn’t come with one. The vampires are in the midst of a battle between themselves and the humans take this opportunity to launch a devastating rebellion set to destroy their enemies once and for all.

The gameplay itself relies in pitting two team of 4-5 players against each other. There are two rounds in each match, in one round a team will be playing the humans and the other will take the role of the vampires. In the second round team will switch roles, so there won’t be any advantage whatsoever. There are two main game modes, either team death match or siege.

While the first one is focused more on the cooperation between each member of the team, the second one relies on strategizing. In Siege, your team has to capture certain points on the map then defend them for as much time as possible.

Graphically, this title has a lot to show. Powered by the latest technologies and the Unreal 3 engine, this game provides a visual experience like none other, and it’s very detailed. The maps look impressive, with lots of attention to detail there are as well, the character models are very realistic and each scar they get during the battle remains. While this might be a minor detail, it brings a lot of authenticity to the game world.

There are 5 maps in Nosgoth, but more are added continually. From medieval towns to darker locations, all of them offer the perfect landscape for the upcoming battles that you will have.

When it comes to the sounds, Nosgoth brings realistic sounds as well as a soundtrack that is dark and gritty, pretty much like the game itself.

The battles in this game are quite engaging and fast paced, so hiding is not an option. This means that you do need to strategize for a little bit, but most of the time it will be down to using the skills of your character in the best way you can.

Both human and vampire classes are quite balanced, as each one has its unique set of skills and abilities that do provide a lot of value to the game. All of these can be combined during battles, which means that one can create powerful combos which can simply destroy the competition.

Nosgoth is a game with a unique setting and a very intense combat. Its horror theme, fun gameplay and beautiful design recommends it for people on the lookout for an action –packed arena game.

This review is about the free access weekend of Nosgoth from August 7th to 10th, 2014.

About relaunching a dead MMORPG

It's never pretty when an MMORPG closes its doors. Most of the MMOs that die are the unpopular ones that never became popular, nevertheless I know that all of those now defunct games had players who are now left all alone in the cold. I feel sad just thinking about it, how people can play their character for years, make lots of friends,  get excited over rare loot, achieve so many in-game goals, and then one day their character and its history is just gone for good.

I particularly remember when City of Heroes and Glitch closed down, the players must have felt so bad.

However, it's not all gloom and doom. There are a few dead MMORPGs that have been brought back to life. To give just one example, when free to play MMORPG publisher Outspark went kaput Luvinia Online also closed. Six months later, a new publisher took over and relaunched it. Now Luvinia is doing better than ever, with higher resolution graphics and a new expansion.

This, my very first blog post, is therefore dedicated to the good folks of the Phoenix Project, also known as City of Titans (, a Kickstarted-funded game that is the spiritual successor to City of Heroes.

Here's to you, Missing Worlds Media! I really hope that you will be able to re-create CoH in all its glory.
