Bloodlines 2 Takes a Bite Out of E3
After an age, classic PC RPG Vampire: The Masquerade – Bloodlines is getting a sequel and to be quite honest, it looks great. A new trailer shown off in the PC Gaming show last night wowed the crowd with what looks to be one of the most exciting RPGs heading our way in the near future.
The game will once again be about finding your place in an underground society of the undead, making alliances with factions and staying unnoticed to the oblivious human population. Some really cool systems are at play and they can be best explained with the PR brief below.
Vampire: The Masquerade – Bloodlines 2 features:
- Feed Your Power, Own the Night – Immerse yourself in the World of Darkness and live out your vampire fantasy in a city filled with intriguing characters that react to your choices. Your unique disciplines, vampiric powers granted by the clan you join, make you a supernatural weapon in a forward-driving, fast-moving, melee-focused combat system. Your power will grow as you advance, but remember to uphold the Masquerade and guard your humanity … or face the consequences.
- Descend into Seattle’s Dark Heart and Survive the Vampire Elite – Seattle has always been run, albeit secretly, by vampires. Hunt your prey across Seattle locations faithfully reimagined in the World of Darkness, from the piers of the waterfront to the bars and clubs of Pioneer Square. Meet the old blood founders present since the city’s birth and the new blood steering the tech money redefining the city. Everyone has hidden agendas – so choose your allies wisely.
- Enter into Uneasy Alliances – Choose a side among competing factions, each with their own unique traits and stories, in the war for Seattle’s blood trade. The world will judge you by the company you keep, but remember no one’s hands stay clean forever.
- Experience a Reactive, Branching Narrative – Written by Brian Mitsoda, the creative mind behind the original Bloodlines, Vampire: The Masquerade – Bloodlines 2 reacts to your every choice in a narrative where different paths, and outcomes, abound.
I am really keen to see how this one turns out. The first game was a cult classic so hopefully, this title takes it one step further and makes it a break out hit. Check out the gameplay trailer and new screens and get excited. Vampire: The Masquerade – Bloodlines 2 will hit PCs and Consoles in 2020.
