Blood Omen 2 is the sequel to Blood Omen: Legacy of Kain, which was released in 1996 on PlayStation. The game is currently being developed by Crystal Dynamics and will be released in Spring 2002.

Blood Omen 2 is a 3D action adventure game in which the player assumes the role of the vampire Kain. A compelling story drives the player through huge detailed environments and challenges their gameplay skills in combat, puzzle solving, stealth and exploration. With each success, the player achieves new dark powers that will grant Kain the ability to access treacherous new areas to explore and the power to face stronger, more aggressive enemies. As the player develops a stronger, more skilled vampire, they are rewarded with dozens of dazzling in-game cinematic sequences that unfold the continuing epic of Nosgoth, and Kain?s attempts to ultimately rule over it.

?We are extremely pleased to announce the return of one of video gaming?s most infamous villains,? says Sean Amann, Marketing Director of Eidos US. ?Blood Omen 2 promises to be a dark, combat thriller that truly harnesses the power of Xbox. The game?s storyline and intense action will not leave fans of the Legacy of Kain series disappointed.?
