I remember playing Legacy Of Kain: Soul Reaver and being completely imersed in that dark and gritty world. Sadly, I never got a chance to complete the other games in the series (I still own them so it’s not too late). It’s been 9 years since the last entry in the series Legacy Of Kain: Defiance was released and VG247 has reported that Crystal Dynamics are working to revive the series.
There sources say that the game will be “a full reworking of the vampire action classic” with “a new art direction.” There have been 5 entries in the series starting with Blood Omen: Legacy of Kain. Kain went from protagonist to antagonist in Soul Reaver in which a new hero by the name of Raziel was introduced.
Crystal Dynamics is currently working on Square’s Tomb Raider reboot for release later this year. The studio has also confirmed it’s readying to announced a new IP in 2012. We could possibly hear about the new Soul Reaver game at E3 this year.
