When Paradox Interactive revealed who was set to work on this highly anticipated production, an interesting change was immediately announced. Originally Bloodlines 2 It was following in the footsteps of its predecessor: players will take on the role of a young Kennett (Kindred) – a vampire who – just like the player – will just delve into the world of darkness.

Meanwhile, new creators decided so The main character in “2” will be an elderly vampire who is “bound” and unable to access most of her powerful powers.
