Vampire: The Masquerade - Bloodlines sinks teeth into retail

Troika's Source-powered action game flies off to store shelves.


The day after Half-Life 2 hit the market, the second game to be powered by developer Valve's Source engine followed suit. Activision has announced that Vampire: The Masquerade - Bloodlines has shipped for the PC. As you'd probably expect for a game about undead bloodsuckers, the game is rated M, and will retail for $49.99.

Developed by Troika Games, Bloodlines is set in goth-RPG company White Wolf's World of Darkness. However, Vampire: The Masquerade - Bloodlines is an all-new adventure. Its mysterious plotline will involve intrigue between seven clans of vampires. Players will create a character from one of said clans, and will have numerous vampire powers to choose from, including supernatural speed, invisibility, and mind control.

GameSpot's full review of Vampire: The Masquerade - Bloodlines should quench anyone's thirst for information on the game.
