LOS ANGELES & STOCKHOLM - JUNE 10, 2019 - Paradox Interactive has today revealed the first gameplay trailer for Vampire: The Masquerade - Bloodlines 2, the highly anticipated RPG developed by Hardsuit Labs set in the World of Darkness. First shown during this morning’s PC Gaming Show, this trailer gives players their first look at the powerful vampire abilities, story elements, and gameplay features they can expect to find in Bloodlines 2.
Vampire: The Masquerade - Bloodlines 2 is the successor to the cult-classic Vampire: The Masquerade - Bloodlines and features reactive storytelling, fast-paced combat, and compelling characters with their own hidden motives. Created in an act of vampiric insurrection, players start the game as a fledgling Thinblood whose existence ignites a war among the vampire factions in Seattle. To survive in vampire society, players will enter into uneasy alliances with Seattle’s factions and join one of the full-blood vampire clans while stalking the city streets for prey, maneuvering complex political relationships, and balancing the need for blood against their withering humanity.
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.
