    Is Crystal Dynamics Teasing A New Legacy Of Kain Game?

    GameInformer
    By GameInformer,

    Over the last couple weeks, Crystal Dynamics has been tweeting content related to its action adventure series Legacy of Kain. While purely speculation at this point, these tweets hint that either a new entry is in the works or that a remaster is on the horizon.

    Though one tweet is related specifically to the #Inktober art challenge, the others heavily hint that Raziel will make his return in one form or another. You can view the tweets below:

    Legacy of Kain: Defiance is the latest game of the series, which released in 2003. A sixth game, Legacy of Kain: The Dark Prophecy, was in development at Ritual Entertainment in 2004 but was later canceled. Legacy of Kain: Dead Sun, another attempt to continue the series, was planned for PlayStation 4 until it too was canceled in 2012.

    In an interview with Australian website Finder in 2015, lead designer at Crystal Dynamics Michael Brinker said that there was a "50/50 chance" that a new Legacy of Kain game would come to current generation consoles.

    “It’s a 50/50 chance. We have in-house developers who really want to make that game," Brinker told Finder. "It’s interesting because people look back at our history and our franchises and see that we have some really great iconic IPs. So gamers wonder; ‘where are they and what are they doing?’ Well we’re always tossing around and talking about ideas [of bringing them back]. It really is 50/50.”

    Last year, alleged images and details from the canceled Dead Sun game emerged, which you can take a look at here. You can also check out this informative video to learn more about the vampiric world of Nosgoth and its lore.

     

    Our Take
    I wouldn't be surprised if these tweets point to a remaster rather than a full-fledged new game. Crystal Dynamics has a lot on its plate right now, such as a partnership with Marvel Entertainment to create an Avengers game alongside Eidos Montreal and also (probably) developing the rumored Shadow of the Tomb Raider. Hopefully an announcement is on the way to let us know what's to come for Legacy of Kain.

    Weekend Warrior – Last Minute Gaming Before Next Week's Triple-A Release Wave

    GameInformer
    By GameInformer,

    SouthGroup610.jpg

    It was a busy week here at Game Informer, but the weekend is finally close at hand.

    As we enter the eleventh hour before the release of some of this season's biggest titles, the G.I. crew is hard at work getting everything ready for readers. As such, a lot of the editors were busy making last-minute touches to stories and reviews, but a few still shared their plans for the weekend.

    Javy Gwaltney (@Hurdyiv): Barreling through Fire Emblem Warriors and trying to build the grandest farm of them all in Stardew Valley.

    Leo Vader (@leovader): Me and some friends made the pivotal discovery last night that Discord’s group video calls include lag-free screen sharing! Meaning of course that we can get a Jackbox game going across the world with pretty much zero effort. Plus Jackbox Party Pack 4 might be the best one yet, zero clunkers in the whole bunch. So I’m gonna be playing a lot of that! HAGS everyone!

    Matthew Kato (@MattKato): I’ve been very busy with “work” games the past few months (I have been so lucky), so my personal gaming time has been limited to an NHL or PES game here and there. This weekend, however, I want to crack open Shadow of War and hopefully take a look at NBA 2K18’s MyGM mode. I’m not a natural basketball fan per se, but the story-based approach to GM sounds interesting. As much racing as I’ve been doing with GT Sport and Forza 7, I actually want to go back and play some Dirt 4. Nothing like rally racing. In non-gaming game news, I’m going to the Vikings/Ravens game this weekend, and I sense a Case Keenum regression to the norm. That’s fine though, because it’s another step towards Teddy getting back on the field… Have a good weekend! C’mon City!

    Jeff Marchiafava (@GIJeffM): While my obsession has waned a bit, I'm still digging Destiny 2, and haven't done my weekly Milestones yet this week, so I'll for sure be playing some of that. My gaming time has also been split between South Park and Shadow of War, which has entailed me sparing more orc captains than actually defeating them. What can I say? I'm a big ol' softie!

    Brian Shea (@BrianPShea): I’m just about finished with Middle-earth: Shadow of War, so I’m going to continue playing South Park: The Fractured But Whole and Golf Story.

    Dan Tack (@dantack): Artisanal charcuterie platter served with a cheese tray. Grain mustard, 5 types of meats and cheeses served with fresh baked breads, jam, and nuts _______________________________

    Cody Mello-Klein (@Proelectioneer) – I just discovered that my housemates have a guitar they don’t play very often, so I’ll probably be playing that all weekend. For games, I plan on spending some more time in Shadow of War now that I’m past the absurdly long and slow tutorial section. I also want to try out the Flame in the Flood on Switch. Also, as usual, more Witcher 3.

    George Ash (@GeorgeEAsh) – This weekend I’m heading south to the University of Missouri to attend my first homecoming as an alumnus. I won’t be playing many video games, but while tailgating I’ll be playing plenty of beer pong and beer darts. 

    Keenan McCall (@KEeNanMcCall525): I’ll be diving head first into South Park: The Fractured But Whole over the weekend. I also want to go back to Cuphead for a little while and really get the hang of some of my favorite bosses.
