Half-Life 2 engine Masquerades in Vampire sequel
Eurogamer.net are reporting this morning that Nihilistic's Vampire: The Masquerade - Redemption will be getting a (mercifully better-titled) sequel: Bloodlines. The game will be developed by Troika Games (and published by Activision), and promises to be an action RPG surrounding the character's involvement with vampire clans, and featuring all kinds of 'vampish' powers. Ahem.
All manner of powers and conventional weapons are promised, in this game that will utilise Valve's Half-Life 2 engine to power the on-screen action. White Wolf's traditional pen and paper based RPG system will once again be employed.
"They are among the elite few companies capable of taking our property into the world of first-person action gaming while still maintaining the story, setting, characters, and role-playing aspects of the game," enthused White Wolf's Chris McDonough. The game will be shown fully at E3 and will be released in 2004.
