Vampire: The Masquerade – Bloodlines 2

  • Only receiving its reveal last week at GDC 2019, the Vampire: The Masquerade – Bloodlines 2 has gotten some more details in terms of story progress.
  • The newly announced sequel to the 2004 Vampire: The Masquerade – Bloodlines by developer Paradox Interactive and Harsuit Labs, Bloodlines 2 will focus on a new city, a story based in Seattle. While RPGs mostly depict their storylines with a day and night cycle, Bloodlines 2 will not have this feature.
  • In an article by Dualshockers, they asked Creative Director Martin Ka’ai Cluney about how the narrative will progress in Vampire: The Masquerade – Bloodlines 2. Although time will progress throughout the story, it will not go from day to night. Explaining that “We didn’t feel like there was enough benefit to actually supporting it. You’re always there at night, you can’t do anything in the day”.
  • The explanation of this seems to make sense as the story revolves around vampires who only come out at night.
  • From this it looks like the game will focus on a natural progression of the story but will also continue to evolve while your character sleeps to help the flow of the game.
  • Vampire: The Masquerade – Bloodlines 2 will release on Playstation 4, PC and Xbox One in Q1 2020.
