Vampire: The Masquerade – Bloodlines 2 Announced

Paradox Interactive announced a sequel to 2004’s Vampire: The Masquerade. The original has somewhat of a cult following, and Paradox purchased many assets used in the original from White Wolf Publishing for use in the sequel in 2015, and since then have been working on a sequel

Set in the city of Seattle, the sequel deals with an event the developer is calling the Mass Embrace – a night wherein many humans became vampires and the effects of that night. Playing as one of the recently turned vampires, you are on the run from other vampires out to execute you.
