Vampire: The Masquerade — Bloodlines 2 Gameplay

Vampire: The Masquerade — Bloodlines 2 will immerse you in a World of Darkness, where bloodthirsty factions reign. To survive, players will have to enter into a dangerous alliance with the "masters of the city" and uncover the secret plot that ignited the bloody confrontation between the vampires of Seattle. The game is a sequel to the first part, released back in 2004. The peculiarity of VtM Bloodlines 2 is the atmosphere, exciting stories, side quests and deeply developed characters. The atmosphere of the new part is promising to be as good as in the previous game.

Enter the world of darkness and rise in the vampire community—experience Seattle, a city full of dangerous characters and factions. From now on, you are dead, but stronger, faster and have great potential to evolve. You can choose your way to the top: use charm, fear or a strong will. What kind of monster will you become? Vampires have always ruled over Seattle.

Many more people become vampires with the protagonist, and they also do not understand what to expect and to do. There is already a rift and war brewing in the established vampire community. There's a lot of fighting and intrigue among the clans, and vampires love playing games behind the scenes. You'll have to get involved in all of this. The only rule is to keep up the Masquerade, that is, not to give away your true nature to the living.

Set out to hunt on the streets of the Emerald City, recreated in detail in an entourage of the World of Darkness. On your way, you meet both ancient vampires from before the city appeared and young blood eager to change the old order with corporate money. Choose your allies wisely and don't forget that everyone here is on their own. The blood war is raging in Seattle, and you can't afford to be left out. Everyone in this war has its quirks and secrets. The attitude of those around you will directly depend on your choice, but remember that sooner or later, everyone will have to get their hands dirty.

It is set in the same fictional World of Darkness, where vampires, werewolves and other fantastic creatures exist beside humans and in secret from them. The storyline of Vampire: The Masquerade — Bloodlines 2 takes place in Seattle. The main character has been turned into a vampire against all the rules. As a result, the protagonist has only weak supernatural abilities. You will have to face the vampire court and cause a war between the vampire clans. It's necessary to join one of them to survive. A hermit named Dale Talley helps you to settle into the vampire world. Over time, the protagonist's strength will grow, but he must remember to support the Masquerade and maintain his humanity, or else he must prepare for the consequences.

Vampire: The Masquerade — Bloodlines 2 will provide in-depth and rich gameplay, as well as the emphasis on the story component, in which the players will have to reincarnate as vampires and become the instigators of the vampire factions confrontation. And only after sorting out the hierarchy and joining a particular clan, it will be possible to survive. More promised the impact of users' decisions on the storyline, where each answer will have consequences. The game will be released in 2021 on PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.
