WHO IS DEVELOPING NOSGOTH?
Psyonix are the team developing Nosgoth. They have been working with industry leading game publishers and developers for over ten years. As experts in Unreal Engine technology and multiplayer gaming, Psyonix has been a driving force behind some of the biggest titles in the marketplace. The studio's first game was the highly successful Onslaught for Unreal Tournament 2004, a game mode Psyonix concepted and designed. Afterwards Psyonix took its experience in multiplayer and rapid gameplay development to work on such titles as Gears of War, Unreal Tournament 3, XCOM: Enemy Unknown, Homefront, Bulletstorm, and Mass Effect 3. The studio has grown significantly since the early 2000s and continues to specialize in game development for next-gen consoles, PC, and mobile platforms.

IS NOSGOTH FREE-TO-PLAY?
Yes, Nosgoth is a Free-To-Play game.
We made the decision to go to free-to-play to break down barriers and let as many players into the game as possible.
Nosgoth is NOT 'Pay-2-Win' - One of our key goals has been to create a fair experience that doesn't penalise players who don’t spend money in the game.

We have servers in Rotterdam, Los Angeles, Virginia and Sydney at present which supports users across all of Europe, North America, Australia, New Zealand, and some surrounding (Oceania) countries. Users from outside of these regions may experience a less than optimal latency but it is our ambition to make Nosgoth available to anyone who wants to play it regardless of where they live as soon as possible.
