Vampire: The Masquerade – Bloodlines 2

Vampire: The Masquerade – Bloodlines 2 is a direct sequel to Troika’s acclaimed but troubled 2004 title.

The Bloodlines‘ lead designer and writer Brian Mitsoda has worked as lead narrative designer of the sequel. The game promises the same open-ended play and freedom of choice as the original, from the way the protagonist uses (or abuses) their newfound vampiric powers, to which of the city’s factions they curry favor with.
