Nosgoth testing welcoming more players this month, moving to closed beta

New, 6 comments

Square Enix is planning to invite more players into closed testing for its free-to-play multiplayer action title Nosgoth later this month, the company told Polygon.

Currently Nosgoth is still in closed alpha as developers work to implement feedback from its current testing phase. Square Enix noted that they "expect to be ready to move on to the next stage of game development very soon" and plan to introduce new features and content with the second wave of testing.

Additionally, the company plans to let more players into testing as Nosgoth moves from closed alpha into a closed beta phase. More invites will be sent out via email this month.

"Unfortunately, we've had to limit the number of players during closed alpha to be able to test the game's network infrastructure, but this will change soon once we get into closed beta and start letting more players in," the company said in a statement.

Nosgoth, a player-versus-player combat-focused title, is a spin off of the Legacy of Kain action-adventure games previously developed by Silicon Knights and Crystal Dynamics. Nosgoth, announced in June 2013, is the first Legacy of Kain-related title since 2003's Legacy of Kain: Defiance and is in development with San Diego-based studio Psyonix.
