Rumor: Soul Reaver Reboot Coming
Oooh, remember Soul Reaver?
The first few titles - starting with Blood Omen: Legacy of Kain - were two of the best games on the original PlayStation, and the third - Soul Reaver 2 - was one of the best titles on the PS2. No, really. Look 'em up.
And now, according to VG247, Crystal Dynamics is currently cranking on a reboot of the franchise. They're saying it's a "full reworking" and it'll boast "a new art direction, too." We might actually see it at E3 but there's no evidence to support that right now. We're also not sure what it might be called; remember, this is technically Legacy of Kain, and the story went through some significant alternations in those first two adventures.
But we'd welcome the chance to play as Raziel again, right? Or maybe Kain...well, whatever, we definitely want to learn more. Crystal Dynamics is also hard at work on the Tomb Raider reboot, and they have hinted at multiple projects in the pipeline.
