Paradox Interactive integrates White Wolf, cuts “disrespectful” passages from Vampire: The Masquerade

Paradox Interactive have announced that they’re fully integrating tabletop RPG developers White Wolf after they used the suffering of Chechnya’s LGBTQ+ population as set-dressing “in a crude and disrespectful way” in Vampire: The Masquerade. White Wolf will receive new leadership and continue to “develop the guiding principles for its vision of the World of Darkness,” but will “no longer develop and publish these products internally.”…

White Wolf release new Vampire: The Masquerade game

White Wolf, who are now owned by Paradox, have released a new Vampire: The Masquerade game. Book. Gamebook. A new Vampire gamebook. Ahh, jokes. They've launched a pair of new gamebooks set in the World of Darkness, one Vampire: The Masquerade full of conspiracy and a Mage: The Ascension tale that's, y'know, also full of conspiracy. White Wolf say the launch of these World of…

White Wolf and the World of Darkness revival: “Asking ‘when will you rage?’ has never been more relevant”

Last week, I sat down with Martin Ericsson, lead storyteller at White Wolf, publishers of the World of Darkness RPG systems and interwoven storylines. It's a strange and exciting time for the company, who are about to step back into the spotlight after a decade-plus drought of digital games since 2004's much-loved Vampire: The Masquerade - Bloodlines. For much of that time Ericsson and colleagues…

White Wolf bringing Werewolf: The Apocalypse to PC

When Paradox bought World of Darkness creators/publishers White Wolf back in 2015, I immediately started thinking of the games they'd make. A Vampire: The Masquerade grand strategy game along with a sequel to RPS favourite Bloodlines perhaps? Or how about those Werewolves? Well, today White Wolf have announced a Werewolf: The Apocalypse game, but it's not coming from Paradox. It'll be published by Focus and…

Blood Hunt: ‘Vampire Bloodlines’ Game Trademark Filed

Friday evening is the perfect time to do something which is fun and exciting for a bit but doesn't necessarily mean anything, so let's gab about how White Wolf recently filed a trademark for "Vampire Bloodlines" specifically in relation to video games. I realise it's only been a few weeks since we last crowded around a burning barrel to mutter "Coo yeah, wasn't Vampire: The…

White Wolf Interview: “There Have Not Been Enough Video Games Set In The World Of Darkness”

The news that Paradox Interactive had purchased World of Darkness creator and publisher White Wolf a couple of weeks ago came as something of a surprise. It also raised a lot of questions: what would become of existing third-party relationships? What are the plans for digital spin-offs of White Wolf properties? Can we expect another Vampire: The Masquerade CRPG at any point in the near…

CCP Shut Down Vampire: TM – Bloodlines Fan Remake

EVE developers CCP have put the kibosh on a fan remake of Vampire: The Masquerade - Bloodlines. The remake, known as Project Vaulderie, was billed as a non-commercial endeavour focused on recreating Troika's RPG in Unity. The reasons for the remake were partly to do with making it more stable, partly for modding reasons, partly to add multiplayer, and partly just to bring it up…

Final Death: World of Darkness MMO Cancelled

In the eight years since CCP Games started their World of Darkness MMO, we've barely heard more than tales about the adaptation of White Wolf's supernatural RPG universe, whispers in the night from mouths awfully close to our necks. It was to be a sandbox world where vampires battled and politicked for power, where everyone started as a human and theoretically could stay so, where…

Kindred Spirits: World Of Darkness

White Wolf are holding their Grand Masquerade at the moment, which makes me wish I was in New Orleans. That said, just mentioning New Orleans makes me want to be there so we won’t give White Wolf too much credit. If you’re not aware of them, they’re the company behind Vampire: The Masquerade and other related role playing games. Not the computer versions, mind, but…
