Multiplayer vampire-’em-up Nosgoth has swooped onto Steam Early Access.
The forthcoming free-to-play game is still in closed beta, but you can purchase access on Steam or on the official website now. There are a variety of packages available, all of which offer a bit more than “just” immediate beta access. The cheapest package is the Veteran pack for £11.99, and that offers you 4,000 runestones (the in-game currency, worth about $20 USD) in addition to a Veteran’s badge and early access. The most expensive is the £80.99 Immortal pack, which contains 30,000 runestones, an Immortal badge, a load of warchests, 10 friend invites, a shared XP booster, the ability to reserve a Warband name, a load of exclusive skins, and early access to a pair of classes.
Nosgoth is a free-to-play asymmetrical multiplayer action game set within the Legacy of Kain universe, in which a team of humans battles against a team of monstrous vampires. The humans have access to all sorts of weapons, while the vampires are capable of flying, and clambering buildings, and pouncing huge distances.

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 things about games, Tim can occasionally be found speedrunning some really 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.
