To loud applause, publisher Paradox Interactive announced at GDC 2019 the role-playing game Vampire: The Masquerade - Bloodlines 2. The sequel to the cult RPG 2004, despite the hard times for the genre, is not going to make a discount for new players and will assume full adherence to the traditions of the original game - a dark setting, gripping scenario and an impressive level of non-linearity. At the same time, you can buy Vampire: The Masquerade - Bloodlines 2 today at an affordable price in all popular electronic stores: GOG, Steam and Epic Game Store. Also confirmed for release on Xbox One and PS4.
Development began more than 4 years ago, almost immediately after the news of the purchase of the rights to the franchise by Paradox. The game is being created by the Hardsuit Labs studio, and even though the studio has no experience in serious role-playing projects, and the most famous game of the developers - the medieval action game Chivalry: Medieval Warfare, there is positive news. For example, Brian Mitsoda, who 15 years ago was the main writer in Vampire: The Masquerade - Bloodlines, is responsible for the plot and quests in the new game. The project also enlisted the help of Chris Avellone, who is in charge of the narrative component of the game.
The first trailer for Vampire: The Masquerade - Bloodlines 2:
The head of Paradox Interactive, Ebba Lungerud, admits that the publisher and developers were fully aware of the importance of the task before them. Vampire: The Masquerade - Bloodlines is a deservedly cult game and Hardsuit Labs has no choice but to create a worthy sequel to the great series. To this end, the development of Vampire: The Masquerade - Bloodlines 2 attracted many people who participated in the creation of the original game.
The events of the game will unfold 15 years after the events of the first part and Seattle, in which the Hardsuit Labs studio is located, is chosen as the city. Separately, it is noted that the main desire of the developers is to create the most non-linear game, where every action (or inaction) of the gamer affects the plot and the surrounding world. In the center of the plot is the player himself, who, after turning into a vampire, becomes the main cause of the bloody war between the vampire clans.
The game Vampire: The Masquerade - Bloodlines 2 is being developed on the Unreal Engine 4, it will offer you to choose a vampire clan and in the gameplay plan, like the original game, it will become a representative of the Immersive Sim genre, which is familiar to new players from Prey 2017 and the Dishonored dilogy.
