Interesting news for fans of the Legacy of Kain series. Today, Superannuation discovered that Square Enix’s domain registrar registered the domain warfornosgoth.com. Nosgoth, for those not in the know, is the world in which the Legacy of Kain series takes place in.
The Legacy of Kain series possessed one of the more celebrated narratives in gaming history, with a story that was told through two separate series, Blood Omen and Soul Reaver, that were intertwined with the characters Kain and Raziel and their epic adventures across time and space. The story tackled themes of fatalism and the struggle for free will while building these two characters up for their final encounter in Legacy of Kain: Defiance.
So, yeah, we here at Blistered Thumbs are pretty excited. While we don’t know what this domain is being used for, whether it’s a new project or a re-release of the series, it would be noted that Crystal Dynamics worked on a majority of the franchise and they have just finished up work on the newest Tomb Raider game. As a side note, if you want to experience the Legacy of Kain for yourself, there is a sale on many of Square’s properties, including the Legacy of Kain (with the exception of the first Blood Omen) series, going on at GOG this weekend.
So, what are your thoughts? Do you think the world of Nosgoth should be revisited? Share your thoughts in the comments below and keep following blistered thumbs for all the latest gaming news.
