Crystal Dynamics and Eidos have teamed up to make the next saga in this morbidly thematic series about vampires and the realm they control.
You play as Raziel, a vampire damned to a hellish fate by your leader and master, Kain. He was the original vampire in Blood Omen: Legacy of Kain and now has become a powerful leader and warrior in the world of Nosgoth. The reason behind your penance is because of Kain's jealously due to your superiority caused by accelerated evolution.
Wings form out of your sides and you are now better than the arrogant Kain. Once Kain discovers your power, he attacks you and sends you into a swirling void of no return. When you awake, your body is torn apart and your mouth is now just a gaping hole. You are hell-bent on revenge against Kain and your brothers, all of whom share vampire powers. With the help from a mysterious man known only as The Elder, you must qualm your wayward spirit.
Your task is to navigate the world of Nosgoth looking for clues and fighting off hordes of creatures, including several types of vampires. The mission you are traversing is non-linear, thus you can go anywhere, anytime. The landscapes range from mountainous terrain to underwater dungeons. Each corner is murkier than the next in this dark, dank, damned world.
Upon finding your brothers, you will have a duel with them and if victorious, inherit their powers. Telekinesis, magic and swimming are just some of the abilities. There is a host of other items in the game for your use such as sticks, torches, spears and the mighty Soul Reaver. Its power is unequaled and you will have to crusade hard to acquire it.
As Raziel is already dead, he cannot be killed. The only consequence of defeat is travel to the Spectral Realm where his life is replenished, although his surroundings will be slightly altered and his missions changed.
Your quest for vengeance and retribution will not be easy and will be paved with many corpses and puzzles. Seek out your brothers and make them pay. ~ Glenn Wigmore, All Game Guide
