Since it’s Halloween, Game creators Vampire: The Masquerade – Bloodlines 2 I decided to share new information about her, While also introducing small bits of gameplay. The secret was revealed by Ian Thomas, Narrative Director from The Chinese Room studio, and Sean Greaney, Executive Vice President of World of Darkness from Paradox Interactive.

Female protagonist or protagonist

First of all, we meet Phyre – the protagonist Vampire: The Masquerade – Bloodlines 2. She is a vampire or vampire – the player will choose the character’s gender, her clothing, or one of the four available clans to which she will belong – who has been “living” in Seattle since the beginning of the 17th century.

However, the game is set in the year 2024, when Phyre awakens from a sleep of nearly a hundred years with large memory gaps. And help him complete it Fabian – A modern-day vampire who inhabits Fire’s body. He kind of reminds me of Johnny Silverhand from Cyberpunk 2077. The protagonist knows and hears his presence.

Although it provides useful information about the game world – which may be especially useful to those who are not familiar with the World of Darkness – Fabian can be ignored. However, his relationship with Phyre will affect the plot Vampire: The Masquerade – Bloodlines 2just like our clothes, the way we “eat,” interact with other characters, etc.

Faces of dead vampires

Undoubtedly the background to the plot Vampire: The Masquerade – Bloodlines 2 It looks very interesting. However, the game’s audio and visuals, specifically the English dub and character facial expressions, may cause concern. The characters – especially Phyre – speak in a somewhat monotone manner. It seems that the movements that can be observed on their faces are not very smooth – almost only the eyes, eyebrows and mouths are animated, which is quite terrifying (especially the piercing movements of the former). Then again, maybe that applies to vampires?

The concerns seem more justified given that the gameplay portions shown come from a “post-alpha” version of the game – almost from the beta. Therefore, it is difficult to expect radical changes in the premiere, the exact date of which we still do not know. We just know that Vampire: The Masquerade – Bloodlines 2 It’s scheduled to release on PC, PS5, and XSX/S in 2024. It is worth noting here that in the coming weeks They will stay All four vampire clans mentioned above are presented and discussed in detail.
