Stellaris developer Paradox Interactive has just announced a sequel to the 2004 action role-playing game, Vampire: The Masquerade – Bloodlines. The sequel, fittingly titled Vampire: The Masquerade – Bloodlines 2, will be launching in 2020 for the PC, PS4, and Xbox One.
The sequel follows your character, a vampire, who will prowl the streets looking for prey while balancing their bloodlust against their withering humanity. After your character’s transformation, their existence sparks a war among the many different factions in Seattle.
You must pick a clan and develop different relationships with the many characters in the game. Each choice you make leads to a different outcome, and it’s up to your character to maintain the vampiric code of secrecy from the outside world.
