Paradox Interactive and Hardsuit Labs have revealed the first look of Vampire The Masquerade: Bloodlines 2 at Microsoft’s Inside Xbox presentation.
As stated on the official Microsoft website [1, 2], and the game’s official website, the game continues the World of Darkness universe in Seattle. Your conversion after a mass vampire attack also restarts the war for the blood trade between the vampire families.
In a story written by Brian Mitsoda (the mind behind the original game), the game reacts to your choices. “Your human background, the Thinblood discipline you choose, the fullblood clan you join, the faction you align with and how you maintain your humanity as a vampire all affect your playthrough.”
Hunt down prey to feed, choose your disciplines, use your heightened senses, and choose your allies carefully. But never break The Masquerade.
You can find the announcement trailer below.
You can find the full rundown (via Steam) below.
Sired in an act of vampire terrorism, your existence ignites the war for Seattle’s blood trade. Enter uneasy alliances with the creatures who control the city and uncover the sprawling conspiracy which plunged Seattle into a bloody civil war between powerful vampire factions.
Feed Your Power, Own the Night
You and your unique disciplines are a weapon in our forward-driving, fast-moving, melee-focussed combat system. Your power will grow as you advance, but remember to uphold the Masquerade and guard your humanity… or face the consequences.
