I ain't pre-ordering ****, but I am definitely very interested in Bloodlines 2. Paradox has been fairly Linux friendly, so I'm hoping they'll continue that trend here.

No Nosferatu = No buy

Edit: State of Play will be held on 25th of March by Sony and it is a Nintendo Direct style of announcement show.

I want some Death Stranding gameplay/info.

So...

 

If there's a werewolf in Vampire the Masquarade: Bloodlines 2...will we be able to kill it?  :shifty:

 


BloodLines 2 is set in the new WoD, not the Gothic inspired one from the first game, right?
Any other major differences we should be aware of, other than art style?
 
Official website here, btw.
 
I notice there are 5 clans listed, and one bonus, so that's one less than the original Bloodlines. Wonder which one got axed, I hope it's not the Malkavians. But maybe some don't exist in the new WoD, kinda know nothing about it tbh (except that they moved away from the Gothic look, unfortunately)

 

The revised WoD setting is Vampire: The Requiem, isn't it?  Wouldn't them using "the Masquarade" indicate its set in the same world as the original game?

Probably Nosferatu. I imagine it's the most difficult to balance the game around.

Yes. Vampire: The Masquerade has been (re-)continued, and the latest revision (v5) was released just last year. I'm not sure what's the status of the Requiem setting at this point, but I think both are active franchises at this point.

Since it's Vampire Masquerade, the generations closer to the methuselas has disappeared and thinbloods are more prevalent. Looking at what they've written, you are one of these. It's possible that you were embraced by the Sabbat aswell since they are generally the ones that deal in mass embracing people, but I don't know if the Camarilla has done a 180 on this.

GOG said March 31 2020 but I'm pretty sure it's just a placeholder

The Anarchs work with random embraces as well. Even if it is just to spite the older vamps.

Seems like Chris Avellone is working on it.

At this point it'd be easier to list projects Chris Avellone is not working on. He has Into the Breach in his credits ffs.

 

So? He already worked with them on FTL:Advanced edition.

Sure, but nowhere near as much as the Sabbat, I'm just going for what I think is most likely.

Its VtM Version 5, the latest version. It's not The New World of Darkness (Chronicles of Darkness).

V5 starts in 2008 with the metaplot being Gehenna itself.

On a side note, you start as a THINBLOOD vampire, you are not part of the clans. You were created during a mass embrace by someone.

First Bloodline game was rather ironic in this regard. Smiling Jack "mentors" you in the tutorial, while in the pen and paper he was known for embracing in camarilla cities and moving on to cause chaos.

Guess it's not really "news", more like "olds", but S.T.A.L.K.E.R.: Shadow of Chernobyl turns 12 today.

 

 

S.T.A.L.K.E.R. 2, when? ;(

 

EDIT: Whelp!
