The beloved Legacy of Kain series spans five games and several thousands of years, and now three of them are being made available on Steam for the first time – Soul Reaver, Soul Reaver 2 and Defiance.
For anybody new to the franchise, in the Soul Reaver games you play as Raziel, a former vampire - killed at the hands of fellow vampire, Kain himself. You're thrown into the Lake of the Dead only to find yourself revived 500 years later by the Great Elder God. As his "soul reaver" (a Wraith) you must return the world of Nosgoth to its former glory by killing Kain.
Soul Reaver still holds an impressive Metacritic rating of 91 and a user rating of 9.3, 13 years after its release in 1999. Its engrossing story was complemented with an impressive combat system, clever puzzles, platforming action and - in a time when gaming technology was far less capable - an environment that let you switch seamlessly between two worlds (the spectral realm and the material realm) on the fly.
Legacy of Kain: Soul Reaver, Legacy of Kain: Soul Reaver 2, and Legacy of Kain: Defiance are all available from today on Steam for $9.99/€9.99/£6.99 each.
