Brian Mitsoda Narrative Lead from games developer Hardsuit Labs, has taken to the official PlayStation blog this week to reveal more details about the new Vampire The Masquerade Bloodlines 2 adventure that will be launching on PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. If you are interested in becoming the “ultimate vampire” the game is now available to preorder and will be officially launching sometime during 2020. Check out the announcement trailer below to learn more about what you can expect from the sequel which follows on from the first game in the series launched back in 2004.
“When we as Paradox acquired the IP, we saw Bloodlines as the crown jewel,” says producer Christian Schlutter. “We wanted to do a new Bloodlines, but we also knew there were a lot of expectations connected to it, not just from the fans but also from us. We actually thought we’d hold off on doing Bloodlines 2, because we wanted to do it right – then these guys come along and have the perfect pitch, with the original writer on-board too. It all happened far faster than we expected.”
“Sired in an act of vampire insurrection, 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.
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. 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.
Seattle has always been run by vampires. Hunt your prey across Seattle locations faithfully reimagined in the World of Darkness. 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.
Choose a side among competing factions, each with their own unique traits and stories, in the war for Seattle’s blood trade.
