You know what I didn’t expect to hear today? That Legacy of Kain series stars Kain and Raziel would be put into the newest Tomb Raider game, The Guardian of Light.
The Legacy of Kain series is one of my favorites. It’s like Zelda with blood and full voice work. And vampires. And philosophical waxing about time travel and destiny. And Tony Jay.
I think I’m getting off track here.
Lara Croft and the Guardian of Light has Lara working with ancient dude Totec to do some serious tomb raiding. So Crystal Dynamics thought it would be pretty cool to take two of their other stars, the aforementioned Kain and Raziel, and make them the stars of Guardian of Light. Same story (basically), same levels, same moves, just replaced by the destroyer of the Pillars and the wielder of the Soul Reaver. They also replaced the voice acting with that of the stars of the games. I am so friggin’ giddy for this. It’s been way too long since I’ve dived into the world of the Legacy of Kain. Even though this is just a glorified character pack, it’s still nice to see these guys back. Hint hint Crystal Dynamics.
The Raziel and Kain character pack is out now for the PlayStation Network and Steam for $14.99 and Xbox Live for 1200 Microsoft Points. It’s rated T for teen. Check out the trailer below.
