A follow up to the 2004 PC cult classic, Vampire: The Masquerade – Bloodlines 2 is an action RPG that follows the story of a human in 21st-century Seattle. This human is killed and revived as a thinblood vampire that possesses relatively weak vampiric abilities. The protagonist is one of a number of humans that has been turned into vampires during a Mass Embrace, an incident in which rogue vampires publicly attacked humans.
Players will be able to choose from three upgradable Disciplines, eventually joining one of five Full-blood clans. Players will also be able to engage in side missions that are away from the main story, some which can be discovered through exploration.
The game will come out for the PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X, and PC.
