as gamefaqs dummies would say RUINED 4EVAH, in a more serious *and* sensible note, this seems intresting despite LoK being a finished series, the elder god is death, Raziel is where he belongs, so is Cain who was purified and became the actual guardian of Balance, and not only that he was turned onto a more... sensible being if his end dialogue is anything to go by.

Duncan Idaho Well said. Basically the question on my mind is whether this is just an attempt to exploit the brand or if they're trying to reopen that door for a new series.

So very odd.

The only thread i could argue SE could use if they want to keep LoK intact are the Hayden, their backstory is not explored nor is the original vampire race background, those two are big question marks, however there is the posibility of a continuity reboot or alternate timeline given how much the timy whimey ball was thrown around in the four games.

erm guys the elder god didn't die, at all. he retreated from kain before kain watched the pillars destruction from afar.

technically it was silicon knights. until crystal dynamics stole the I.P. from soul reaver on.

I just meant squeenix is notorious for messing up games. eidos was way cooler. (hitman, perfect example)

just a few passing comments... There are a total of 5 games in the LoK series beginning with the first Blood Omen game; not 4. Also, i cant be the only one who thinks that the original LoK series needs to be re-released in HD graphics, on one disc, as a HUGE LoK game. I think since Crystal Dynamics is done w/ the new Tomb Raider, this should be their next project!
