    The gameplay is just godlike in its versatility.
    You can be a sneaky asshole or go absolutely Devil May Cry on fools.

    Here is a video of what the latter looks like.

  • That does look sweet but I wouldn't hold my breath for Vampire 2 playing quite like that.

    Then again, 5+ classes and each one had 3 distinct capabilities... Hmmmmmm... it could go that deep.



  • Delayed until 2021. Now Vampire The Masquerade Bloodlines 2 can safely win RPG GOTY without contention from Cyberpunk. It's a win win!

    It's disappointing because I really looked forward to playing this game, but I think they should invest on making this game as great as possible to open it up as a regular franchise. There is also a lot of spin off potential here and nobody is going to care about any of that if this sequel isn't fun. Let it cook and I hope Paradox keeps funding it and letting it cook rather than it getting pushed out the door.



  • Was already in news but putting it in its own thread.



  • This isn't how I wanted to bump this thread... :(

    My completely speculative take is that Hardsuit Labs might've bit off more than they could chew. Perhaps they agreed to deliver within a certain time and budget and it's become clear that it was unrealistic. Either way, it doesn't mean they are untalented or incapable, but if Paradox is going to play in the AAA market, they need to spend whatever they can to deliver the game—especially with next gen in full force, the PS4 / XBO versions will feel dated if they putter around too long.

    Silver lining is that they can maybe bring back Brian Mitsoda to finish off the project, but I somehow doubt he'll want to work with Paradox ever again.

    Fingers crossed for Bloodlines 2 in 2022.
