VAMPIRE: THE MASQUERADE – BLOODLINES 2 COMING OUT IN 2020.

Dude!

The original Vampire: The Masquerade – Bloodlines was released 15 years ago. On top of an absolute mouthful of a title, it was one of the best RPGs of its time, a memorable, heady mix of vampires and Los Angeles crime. It was also the epitome of a cult classic, which is to say it reviewed well but sold poorly. So it’s both a massive surprise and a welcome one that Vampire: The Masquerade – Bloodlines 2, a full-fat, also-a-mouthful sequel, was announced at GDC last night. It’s real, folks, and it’s scheduled to release in early 2020 for PS4, Xbox One, and PC. 

Bloodlines 2 will take the series to a new city, Seattle, and expand upon the vampire society that made the first game great. You play as a young vampire who was forcibly turned as part of a taboo “Mass Embrace,” and who must now learn to navigate a bloody political landscape. 

I never dared hope for a sequel. I was almost afraid of one. But this… this is awesome. While… :checking: …yup, still almost afraid of it. What if it’s not as good?

Welp, guess we’ll see…

    Paradox has a pretty good track record – their representation of Rome in its titular upcoming game aside.

      What is wrong with how they are representing Rome in Imperator? (He asks as he looks up from watching the 12th hour of developers playing the game in multiplayer)
