If anything can take the horrid taste of the Twilight series out of vampire fans’ mouths, it would be a new Soul Reaver game. Word floating around the old internet is Crystal Dynamics is rebooting the franchise as well as going with a brand new art style. Oh yeah and Cory Balrog, co-creator of God of War might be involved! Crystal Dynamics recently hired the superstar to work on a rework of Tomb Raider and one more unannounced project. If that happens to be Soul Reaver, bleep just got real!
Soul Reaver was an offshoot of the Legacy of Kain series about vicious vampires. Raziel, the star of Soul Reaver, was on a vengeance fueled trip to murder his creator, Kain. Kain’s ego and jealousy caused him to go psychotic on Raziel, nearly wiping him out of existence. Instead of dying (again), Raziel become a wraith and must feed off of other vamps for nourishment. It was a more action oriented affair, had a few nice plot twists and was total fun. A reboot would be just the thing to spice things up for those of us tired of sparkly, emo vamps.
If the rumors are true, we could see some sort of reveal this year, maybe at E3. Bring it!
