Legacy of Kain game world name appears on Steam database and AMD patch logs

Patch logs and database made mentions "War of Nosgoth" and "Nosgoth".

A new game based on the Legacy of Kain series may be in the works. The word "Nosgoth", which was the name of the world where the franchise was set in, appeared on the database of Valve's digital distribution tool Steam.

The last Legacy of Kain game was inspired by Devil May Cry.

According to the database report (via Polygon), the last recorded update was on May 27. The words "Nosgoth and "War for Nosgoth" were also mentioned on an AMD driver patch log, possibly hinting at an upcoming game based on the franchise. User Corlagon posted details on the log on the Eidos forums.

The Legacy of Kain series was set in the dark realm of Nosgoth and focused on two vampires, Kain and Raziel. The series started with Blood Omen: Legacy of Kain, a 1996 PlayStation title developed by Silicon Knights, and ended with Legacy of Kain: Defiance, a 2003 action game developed by Crystal Dynamics.

I hope they look to Dark Souls for inspiration to bring the old classic up to modern fantasy  adventure standards and not God of War like so many seem to do. 

Legacy of Kain would appropriately fit into the Dark Souls atmosphere/gameplay, just like Castlevania which was another game that could have benefited from the same inspirations.

Legacy of Kain is a series that doesnt need to be rebooted, or remade. let the series die in peace  , respectfully.

I've been waiting for the next Legacy of Kain for years since I heard about a possible franchise reboot. I'll be keeping an eye out for more news on this.

@Bluemeanie77: Totally going with your vote. Loved Raziel. Missed the voice. Legacy of Kain... can't wait.

@DiscGuru101 Loved that game. Can't stand any of the latter franchise titles. The original was so unique.

@PARTEMADRES By the tiny pic next to your post I would assume Dragon Warrior/Dragon Quest would have made you a true gamer

@raziel2kain 

fixed camera angels, a focus on combat and the ability to air juggle.  Defiance did take cues from DMC.

also Rip Tony Jay.

@TerraMantis I would love to see that so much. One of my favourite things about the first two LOK games was how oppressive they felt, something Dark Souls did perfectly.

@Branden_Lucero I would agree, if the final game to wrap up the story hadn't been cancelled.  I would like to at least see The Dark Prophecy's story before leting the series go forever.

@deckmaster2004 The voice talent in LoK was definitely part of what made the series so awesome. Kain, Raziel, the elder god, all some of the best VO in any game ever.

@deckmaster2004 Absolutely!! His voice talent will truly be missed...He brought that "Other Worldly' quality to that character.
