Anyone here excited for this?
Paradox Interactive just announced the resurrection of Vampire: The Masquerade - Bloodlines, one of the best (and buggiest) RPGs ever made, and they’re making a sequel.
If you’re not familliar, VtMB was developed by now no longer existing Troika Games and it’s based on tabletop RPG from the World of Darkness, published by White Wolf. The game had fantastic writting and worldbuilding and it gained quite devoted cult following, despite its broken technical state. It was released on the same day as Half Life 2 tho, which didn’t really help the sales, plus overall funding issues, so Troika was forced to close doors shortly after the release.
In 2015, Paradox Interactive purchased White Wolf, so they got rights to WoD as well, and now, they’re working on VtMB II.
I’m so fucking excited for this, holyeffingshit, VtMB had dominated my whole puberty, i was just drowned it that world and its lore for years and it is kinda responsible for the choice of my career.
I’m trying not to be so hyped, bc this doesn’t really fit with the Paradox’s portfolio, so who knows, how good or bad it’s going to be, the trailer is mainly just combat focused, instead of showing the world… But some people, who worked on the original Bloodlines, are back and working on this, so…
It’s been like what, 15 years? Just seeing that title back and alive makes me feel shaky af… i need a five…
