The human faction of free-to-play vamp-’em-up Nosgoth has a new ally today, in the form of the Vanguard class.
The gladiator-looking Vanguard focuses on both a gigantic shield and powerful throwing weapons, letting him dish out damage and range while survive vampiric assaults up close. Other than a variety of axes – ranging from those that can be thrown quickly, to those splitting in two and those that cause enemies to bleed – he can perform bashes and charges with his shield, and call upon Judgment or a Rousing Cry to either finish off low-health enemies or empower nearby allies.
The Vanguard is the second new class for Nosgoth since the game entered open beta, and I rather doubt it’ll be the last. It’s available to play today, and you can see some screens of the shield-bearing chap in action below.Related to this article
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.
