I <3 anything in the LoK universe, but not what I was expecting.  I hope somewhere along the line somehow there's a sequel or reboot.

I'm not thrilled with this at all.

 

LoK is one of my all time favorite game series, and instead of another chapter they're releasing a moba of sorts?!

 

Kain is deified. The clans pay homage. Humans will end up being herded, gathered, and grown for food. We have already seen it happen once.

 

I want more true LoK. I wish them well though. I will just not be taking part in this.

It's not a moba, it's a plain multiplayer FPS with a meta game.

Like MW online or world of tanks, but with vampires and humans.

...This was certainly not the Legacy Of Kain series instalment I have been waiting for.

 

Why are they so super happy in the announcement video? "My favourite human class has a grenade launcher and a flame thrower! (I'm so kewl)" doesn't sound like "We're really, really, really sorry".

 

Razielem - a vampire class? Name drop much? I give up.

 

Kain would not stand for this.

The vampire classes are named for the "brothers" raised by Kain -- I saw Turelian clan in there as well.  

 

I'd get this if the Hylden are somehow incorporated

I'm aware of the Sarafan Brotherhood that were slaughtered by Kain, I'm merely stating the weak implementation of plot demonstrated from the outset.

It seems to be a multiplayer arena combat game with a meta game, what plot :p

I bet this game was being developed and then when it come to announcing it they thought how they'd market it and hope people not think of it is as another F2P shooter game. So the publishers said "shall we say it is in the LoK universe?".

 

I hope this isn't the way for cult franchises.

I'd hate to see Shenmue end up as some crappy MMO or F2P mobile game... oh wait they already tried that! :laugh:
