Vampire: The Masquerade - Bloodlines 2 has a new protagonist

From being one of the most eagerly anticipated titles in recent years to completely disappearing from the radar, the journey of Vampire: The Masquerade - Bloodlines 2 has been a rollercoaster. The huge popularity of the tabletop RPG from White Wolf and the good memories created by the first Bloodlines seemed a foundation solid enough for the success of a game that drowned in the intricate labyrinth of the development process. Fortunately, there seems to be some light shining at the end of the tunnel, and a new studio has taken over the development of Vampire: The Masquerade - Bloodlines 2.

Significant changes

Developer The Chinese Room is taking a slightly different approach at Vampire: The Masquerade - Bloodlines 2. The change of direction is starting to be noticeable in a series of developer streams that have been released since the new studio started working on the game. One of the most noticeable ones is a change of protagonist. Vampire: The Masquerade - Bloodlines 2 will have a specific protagonist now rather than a generic vampire that you create. In the game, you will play Phyre, a vampire Elder who has awoken after a hundred years in torpor.



Players will still have some degree of control over the character and they can choose their clan, gender, and clothing. Still, Phyre's background seems to be quite tightly defined, and it carries some mysteries with it that will surely drive the story forward. The new development team is focused on boosting the narrative aspect of the game, which is something that the fans of Vampire: The Masquerade will love as the lore of the World of Darkness is as rich as it gets.

There is no news about a possible release date for Vampire: The Masquerade - Bloodlines 2, but it seems that the game will definitely be reborn from its ashes as a phoenix sometime in the future.
