Rule Crusader Kings 3 as an immortal with this Vampire: The Masquerade mod

Blood is a powerful tool in the political maneuverings of medieval strategy game Crusader Kings 3, but it's an even more vital resource when your ruler is an actual vampire. Yup, that's sure a thing you can do thanks to the Princes Of Darkness mod that lets you scheme, plot, and rule as a vampire from the Vampire: The Masquerade setting. It's the successor to a Crusader…

Another Vampire: The Masquerade visual novel is coming this year

Have you had enough vampires yet? No, of course not. There are still flocks yet to come this year, a number of them hailing from the World Of Darkness setting. We're still expecting big RPG Vampire: The Masquerade - Bloodlines 2 sometime this year, and it looks like it'll be joined by another visual novel in the same world. Vampire: The Masquerade - Shadows Of New…

Werewolf: The Apocalypse – Earthblood is coming out next year

The creators of Bloodbowl, Cyanide Studio, have released the first "gameplay trailer" for their upcoming action RPG, Werewolf: The Apocalypse - Earthblood. Based on the World Of Darkness tabletop RPG, the video game's a lot going on - freaky creatures, guns, gore, a bit too much punctuation, and now it's even got a release date. It's a little ways off yet though, as it'll be…

Ex-Witcher devs announce Werewolf: The Apocalypse – Heart Of The Forest

It's all getting a bit cramped in the World Of Darkness, but it seems there's space to squeeze in at least one more wolf. Putting the other White Wolf behind them, two former Witcher devs today announced Werewolf: The Apocalypse - Heart Of The Forest - an upcoming tale of anger, activism and global warming as told through the lens of the big bad wolf.…

Damsel returns to cause distress in Vampire: The Masquerade – Bloodlines 2

Vampire: The Masquerade - Bloodlines 2 was bound to have a few familiar faces, wasn't it? I mean, they're vampires so they tend to hang around a while. Paradox Interactive have released a new video announcing that yer girl Damsel—who seems much less likely to be in distress than the one causing it—will be making a return in Bloodlines 2.

VR horror game Wraith: The Oblivion – Afterlife will share Vampire: The Masquerade’s universe

The amount of punctuation in its name may be horrifying enough, but VR game Wraith: The Oblivion - Afterlife is planned as a proper horror game on its own merit. It's based on the tabletop RPG Wraith: The Oblivion which shares the World Of Darkness universe with similarly punctuated Vampire: The Masquerade. Seriously, all these colons will murder me faster than any supernatural baddie.

Feature: Keep Hope alive

Vampire: The Masquerade – Coteries of New York review

It's probably difficult to know exactly how to do a Vampire: The Masquerade game. What proportion of your audience will come from the original tabletop game? How many are only familiar with Bloodlines? What if people only picked it up for the genre?On top of this, Vampire: The Masquerade - Coteries of New York is a visual novel too, so who even knows what assumptions…

Feature: World of Absence

The RPG Scrollbars: In search of urban fantasy

There's a real urban fantasy gap in the gaming industry, and it's never made much sense. We see a thousand Tolkienesque fantasy games a minute (rough napkin calculation) and the future's typically so bright, even the lens flares need shades. Yet when it comes to that line where the mundane meets the magical, mostly what we've had for the last few years is false hope.…

Feature: Videogames saved the radio star

The RPG Scrollbars: Voices In The Air

There's something oddly comforting about radio. Comforting because it's so familiar, so natural. Odd because it's a comfort that most of us don't really use all that much these days, at least not in the ways that games just casually assume. It's a little like the whole audio diaries thing - it makes a vague sense that everyone in a city like Rapture might record…

Feature: Tomorrow's World Of Darkness

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…

Hemorrhage: World Of Darkness Screens And Details Leak

As sorry as I was to hear this month that CCP has cancelled its World of Darkness MMO, when a developer says that a game just isn't working out, I tend to believe them. Testers have started to leak little bits of World of Darkness, several sets of screenshots and a supposed playtest manual, and, well, it does look ropey.The playtest manual is from March…

Vampire: Bloodlines Achieves True Immortality, Hits Patch 9.0

EVE developer CCP's World of Darkness MMO might be naught but fang and ash, but Vampire will never truly die. Not so long as Vampire: The Masquerade: Bloodlines (and, you know, a massively successful White Wolf role-playing setting) is still alive and kicking. But wait, that can't be right. Vampire: The Masquerade: Bloodlines developer Troika keeled over way back in 2005. Any other game would…

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…

CCP Taking Cues From DayZ, Rust For World Of Darkness

CCP might be best known for EVE Online, but they've had another project burbling away in their developmental cauldron since basically the dawn of time. World of Darkness, based on White Wolf's Vampire: The Masquerade setting, is technically existent, though CCP has become quite adept at keeping it shrouded in, er, darkness. But every once in a while some news slips out, and not all…

EVE Fanfest Brings World Of Darkness Updates

Space. It's cold and uninhabitable without profoundly advanced technologies that keep our frail human organs from staging a whizzbang prison break right out our eye holes. Vampires. They're all yucky and clammy and dead and stuff. Iceland. It's... um, actually quite pleasant in many areas, though occasionally a bit nippy. So I guess staging EVE Fanfest in Reykjavik kinda works, especially since the Internet tells…

Confirmed: Permadeath In World Of Darkness

But perhaps not quite as you might imagine. According to the World Of Darkness presentation at the Eve Fanfest - some of which you can see here, via VG247 - the players will be able elect "the Prince Of The City" for the real world locations such as London and New York, which will be player leader characters who will be able to permanently kill…

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…

Feature: Look, I Just Need Some Space

Eve Online’s Struggle & CCP’s Redemption

The recent controversies generated by Eve Online have been interesting to watch, but they have also stirred a bunch of feelings about the game that I have long intended to articulate. I want to talk a bit about the promise of MMOs, the future of subscription-based games, and the lack of a suitable alternative to CCP's game of spaceships.
