Well this is a lovely surprise – Paradox Interactive have announced that not only will cult PC RPG hit Vampire: The Masquerade get a sequel, but also that it will release on PS4 and Xbox One sometime in 2020. Vampire: The Masquerade Bloodlines 2 is a thing!
Vampire: The Masquerade Bloodlines 2 PS4 release confirmed
Released on PC back in the mists of 2004, the original Vampire: The Masquerade was a first-person RPG set in White Wolf’s Vampire: The Masquerade tabletop universe. Unique for its time, Vampire: The Masquerade Bloodlines had players emerging from the night as a newly sired Vampire who must find their way through the world and uncover a conspiracy at the highest levels of vampire society.
Where things got especially interesting was in where the Masquerade side of things came into play, because, as a vampire, the need to feed was omnipresent and doing so in front of humans causes them to become alerted to you; demanding that you come up with creative ways of keeping your identity secret.
The sequel, Vampire: The Masquerade Bloodlines 2, looks to do the same when it launches on PS4 early in 2020. Set in a dark take on Seattle, Bloodlines 2 has players once again plunging into vampire society to uncover the mysterious puppet masters who look to upend the balance of power between humans and vampires.
Boasting a wide range of skill trees, multiple dialogue choices and massive, sprawling open-world drenched in darkness and Gothic flair, Vampire: The Masquerade Bloodlines 2 definitely looks like one to keep on your collective radars.
In addition to the standard version of the game, players will be able to preorder a collector’s edition of Bloodlines 2 which comes with a content bolstering season pass.
Until Vampire: The Masquerade Bloodlines 2 releases though, you can catch the announcement trailer below.
