Vampire: The Masquerade - Bloodlines 2 was given some well-deserved spotlight at the PC Gaming Show E3 2019, dropping a gameplay trailer. Thankfully, however, PC Gamer - who hosted the show - has given us another 20 minutes of raw gameplay footage to sate our bloodlust - that is, the thirst for Bloodlines 2, not actual human blood.
The 20-minute gameplay footage from Vampire: The Masquerade - Bloodlines 2 is exclusive to PC Gamer, and fleshes the RPG mechanics out a little bit more than we have seen before. We also get to see the combat mechanics first-hand, which look pretty good, as well as some of the disciplines that each thinblood has available. Keep in mind that this is a pre-alpha demonstration so expect a variety of hick-ups.
Best of all is the dialogue options. In one scenario, which you will see in the footage, you are talking to a man named Lurk. While conversing, you have your standard dialogue options, but there are also options involving negotiation and coercion. Coercion is usually, "I am a vampire, and I will kill you, and even if you live, no one will believe you". The best part about this is that, the premise of the "Vampire: The Masquerade" is to keep the masquerade - basically, don't let people know you are a vampire.
This showcases just how much freedom you have within the game - you don't need to abide by the laws of the game, you can work against it, and that's what the greatest RPG's have always offered.
Vampire: The Masquerade - Bloodlines 2 releases Q1 of 2020 on PC, PS4, and Xbox One.
Loves games with deep character development and a rich storyline. Also, shooty-shooties. Loathes microtransactions. Likes to use sarcasm and metaphors.
