Square Enix has announced that their free-to-play, vamps-versus-humans, asymmetrical multiplayer title Nosgoth has entered open beta.
Based around the Legacy of Kain series, the Psyonix-developed Nosgoth sees you take control of either a tech-savvy human with powerful ranged attacks, or a stealthy vampire focused on melee and outmaneuvering, attempting to either shoot or shred members of the opposing team to claw your way to victory. This open beta now means you can try it for free – and with a double XP boost for the first week, no less.
Square Enix have also taken the time to detail what’s going to be added to the game soon. Expect to see the Summoner – a vampire class that commands ghouls – as well as an unannounced human class, a Vampire city map, a new game mode, new skins, and a lot of peripheral stuff like league rankings, gifting, crafting, observer tools, and the like.

Tim has been playing PC games for longer than he’s willing to admit. He’s written for a number of publications, but has been with PC Invasion – in all its various incarnations – for over a decade. When not writing about games, Tim can occasionally be found speedrunning terrible ones, making people angry in Dota 2, or playing something obscure and random. He’s also weirdly proud of his status as (probably) the Isle of Man’s only professional games journalist.
