New Legend of Kain Game Announced Finally!
Some fans speculate that Crystal Dynamics may finally be hinting at an all-new Legacy of Kain game.
Long awaited is the sequel in Legacy of Kain series – Blood Omen: Legacy of Kain was initially released for PlayStation in 1996 as an underrated classic game and remains beloved today.
But Legacy of Kain reached its true pinnacle on PlayStation with Legacy of Kain: Soul Reaver’s release in 1999 – once more for this original generation console from Crystal Dynamics and Eidos Interactive, set in Nosgoth – thanks to Eidos Interactive publishing this game developed by Crystal Dynamics.
Raziel returns in this sequel of Blood Omen as you play as the protagonist Kain who not only thirsts for blood but power as well and betrays Raziel into damnation by betraying an ancient entity known as The Elder God – giving Raziel another chance at revenge!
Unfortunately, 20 years have gone by since Legacy of Kain: Defiance was released for PC, PS2 and the original Xbox, so fans may longingly await its resurrection.
Back in October 2022, fan hopes were reignited when Crystal Dynamics sent surveys out asking fans some probing questions regarding Legacy of Kain revival – such as whether we would like a sequel or remake and which genre it should take place within.
Crystal Dynamics then teased fans by saying it had heard from over 100,000 survey responses asking to see the Legacy of Kain series return; but since that announcement there has been little news until today.
GameSpot reported on rumors indicating Crystal Dynamics may be holding a secret playtest of an upcoming title, either Tomb Raider or Legacy of Kain. Thought leaders speculate it could be Tomb Raider, others think Legacy of Kain.
Crystal Dynamics confirmed to PCGamesN that an open playtest will take place next month and confirmed its authenticity as genuine – although without providing details as to what will be tested. A CD’ representative informed PCGamesN that “I can confirm it’s genuine but without providing details as to what will be tried out.”
Playtesters for both PC and Mac versions will conduct remote trials between 3 May to 12 May; testers will relay any pertinent feedback directly to developers via Microsoft Teams.
Unfortunately, details on the game remain undisclosed and access to its test is only open by invite only. With that being said, don’t be surprised if some sneaky testers breach an NDA agreement and leaks appear online despite NDA agreement terms being breached by them – that could happen!
