Vampire: The Masquerade – Bloodlines 2 Gets First Gameplay Trailer at E3
E3 is always a place to look out for new info from big releases. Well, that’s the case every now and then. This year, at the PC Games Show, has at least given us all something we really wanted. Paradox Interactive and Hardsuit Labs have brought us the very first gameplay trailer for Vampire: The Masquerade – Bloodlines 2 and I’m looking forward to it.
Not only have we received a footage of some actual gameplay, the release date has been narrowed down to Q1 2020, so sometime between January until the end of March.
As for the key features of Vampire: The Masquerade Bloodlines 2, well they are as follows:
- 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.
If this ends up even half as good as the original Bloodlines, I’m going to be more than happy. Still, I can’t help but be hyped up for this, having been a huge fan of the original.
