Today Psyonix & Square Enix are pleased to announce that
Closed Beta access to Nosgoth will begin on February 27
Nosgoth is a free-to-play team based, third person online
multiplayer game, offering ferocious action and competitive
gameplay. To celebrate the launch of Nosgoth’s closed beta
phase, an all-new mode will be made available called Siege. In
Siege, Humans must capture specific locations and keep them safe
from Vampires, while the Vampires must satisfy their blood-thirst
and hunt down their Human opponents. This is in addition to the
asymmetrical, melee versus ranged Team Deathmatch mode that defines
Nosgoth’s signature gameplay.
Nosgoth delivers fast-paced action and tactical combat with
stunning visuals that bring the game’s environments to life.
Powered by Unreal Engine 3, players can customise their classes and
mould each one to suit their own individual gameplay style.
The game will be updated continually throughout closed beta,
with future additions including new maps, modes and character
classes, plus new weapons, abilities, skins, and more.
Do let us know if you would like to gain access to Nosgoth
Developed by Psyonix, Nosgoth is a unique team-based
player-versus-player game pitting a variety of brutal Human and
Vampire characters in a fight for survival. Created as a
competitive free-to-play title in order to break down barriers
between the creators and the players, Nosgoth doesn’t include
weapons, items or abilities that are inherently better (aka
supremacy goods). All items in the Nosgoth in-game store are
side-grades not upgrades to create a fair game experience based
purely on skill.
