The free to play Human vs. Vampire online, team-based, multiplayer game from Square Enix and Psyonix will launch into open beta on January 21st.
Nosgoth empowers players of all skill levels with a system focusing on sidegrades rather than upgrades. Offering a level playing field, with balancing being key; Nosgoth focuses on asymmetric combat – where players play as both the melee-oriented Vampire faction as well as the ranged Humans.
“Thanks to our highly dedicated and very passionate community, we’ve had an amazing journey so far,” said Corey Davis, Game Director. “Our goal for the Open Beta is to deliver a fun and engrossing metagame and we realize that working closely with our community is the best way for us to balance and deepen the experience going forward. We are thrilled to see what the future brings!”

Nosgoth is a fast paced and intense game that features two opposing factions with very different gameplay mechanics, both requiring different strategies and tactics. Within a match gamers play one round as Humans and one round as Vampires with both sides featuring a variety of classes.
- The Humans primarily rely on ranged attacks and are most effective when staying together as group. Humans win through attrition, by wearing down the vampires at range and healing at various supply stations around the map. Armed with weapons from a repeating crossbow, to the ability to blind enemies with Sunlight Vial, the Humans are a force to be reckoned with.
- The Vampires are dangerously focused on melee attacks, relying on speed and agility to attack the enemy from multiple angles. With mobility including scaling buildings and a flying class, the Vampires fight best solo in coordinated attacks with team mates and recover health by feeding off the Humans.
