Watch Vampire: The Masquerade - Bloodlines 2's first gameplay video
I'm still not entirely convinced that Vampire: The Masquerade - Bloodlines 2 is a real game that's really coming, given its tortured history, but watching the first gameplay video today is starting to turn me around. It appears to show some of a newly-bitten vampire's first nights in Seattle, running errands for the warring powers that be, and I want to believe. Original Bloodlines storyman Brian Mitsoda is lead writer on the wonky-but-much-beloved first-person RPG's sequel and ah heck, who needs my words, just watch the video below.
Some lovely sights in Seattle by night there.
Alice Bee had a wee look at Bloodlines 2 when it was announced in March, and followed up by talking with Mitsoda about the Malkavian clan.
Bloodlines 2 is due in early 2020, by the end of March. It will cost £51/€60/$60 from Steam, GOG, and Epic.
Disclosure: Cara Ellison, a former RPS columnist and my former flatmate, is a senior narrative designer on Bloodlines 2. I live in fear that the many bad habits I had as her flatmate while she was writing will manifest in the game's absolute worst NPC. p.s. hey Cara I'm still packing up the flat to move out (yes, during E3 week, a great time) and today I discovered a coaster decorated simply with the text "YA FUD". I'll post you the jewellery I also found but the fud stays with me.
