Vampire: The Masquerade Bloodlines is a cult classic with a huge fan following. So it doesn’t come as a surprise that fans were excited when Vampire: The Masquerade Bloodlines 2 was officially announced. However, the developers announced the game with a CG trailer and no in-game footage was shown.
That is not entirely true as the studio has revealed a few of the in-game screenshots for the upcoming Vampire The Masquerade Bloodlines 2. However, these images weren’t revealed in a press release but are part of the video documentary filed by “Noclip“.
However, don’t expect the game to look the same as shown in the images as the game is still in development and developers might change a few things. But, with Vampire The Masquerade Bloodlines 2 being scheduled to 2020 release, I doubt that there would many changes.
Not only that, the developers have also revealed the different Vampire clans that will be available to players. The original game featured a lot of Vampire clans each having its advantages and disadvantages.
In the sequel, players will start as a Thinblood and will get to choose from five different clans. Not only that, as a Thinblood, players will have to choose from one of the three playable classes: Chiropteran, Mentalist, and Nebulation.
Each class features unique abilities like combat, traversal, telekinesis, summoning swarms of bats and more. These unique abilities will help players in different ways and combine them with five different clans, each time the experience will be different.
For those who don’t know, Vampire: The Masquerade Bloodlines launched in 2004 and was plagued with bugs and glitches despite having incredible RPG mechanics and narrative.
Following the game’s release, modders fixed most of the issues but the game didn’t sell well. But with the word of mouth spreading, the game became a cult classic with a huge following. It remains to be seen if the game will live up to the hype and fan expectations.
Vampire: The Masquerade Bloodlines 2 is a first-person RPG in development at Hardsuit Labs and will launch in 2020 for PC, Xbox One and PlayStation 4.
