Square Enix has unveiled Nosgoth, the free-to-play competitive multiplayer game set in the Legacy of Kain universe.

The trailer, below, shows off the third-person, team-based human versus vampire gameplay. Nosgoth is developed by Psyonix, and will be released on PC via Steam.

Humans use ranged weaponry and specialised equipment. Vampires use close combat melee attacks and supernatural abilities.

Each side has multiple classes and many items to unlock, including weapons, perks and abilities.

"At Psyonix, we're passionate about team-based multiplayer games," reads a statement on the Nosgoth blog. "When Square Enix approached us to help create Nosgoth, we were excited to use our experience working on titles like Bulletstorm, Gears of War, Mass Effect 3, and Unreal Tournament 2004 to deliver something unique in the multiplayer genre.

"We made the decision to go to free-to-play to break down barriers and let as many players into the game as possible. One of the key goals has been to create a fair experience that doesn't penalise players who don't spend money in the game, as such Nosgoth doesn't include items, weapons or abilities that are inherently better (aka supremacy goods)."

You can sign up for the closed beta over at the official Nosgoth website.
