Square Enix’s free-to-play MMO Nosgoth is currently only available on the PC platform via Steam’s Early Access program and is still without an official release date. However, Nosgoth may not be confined to just the PC if a recent ratings decision by the Australian ratings board is to be believed.
The Australian Classification board recently rated the upcoming MMO and not surprisingly awarded the game an MA15+ rating for “strong bloody violence” and “online interactivity.” Whilst this won’t surprise anybody in the slightest (it’s a game that puts humans vs vampires, of course there will be blood!) what is surprising is that the same ratings committee listed Nosgoth as being a “multi platform” title.
Whilst this is far from confirmation that Nosgoth will be making the leap from PC to console, it’s a pretty strong hint and it makes sense that Square Enix will want to expand the player-base with their latest free-to-play MMO.
For those who aren’t aware, Nosgoth started out life as the multiplayer component in the cancelled Legacy of Kain: Dead Sun but following the cancellation of the single-player portion development was shifted to focus on creating a free-to-play MMO from the multiplayer section of the cancelled game.
It’s currently only available on PC via Steam’s Early Access and the general opinion of those who have played Nosgoth is that it’s a decent game, so maybe this could be one to look out for sometime next year? In the meantime we’ll just have to wait and see, or if you have a half decent PC you can jump into the fray and get a taste of Nosgoth.
