Vampire: The Masquerade Is Getting A Battle Royale Game
Sharkmob has revealed a first-look at their upcoming 2021 project, a battle royale set in the RPG universe.
A new Vampire: The Masquerade title has been announced, and it's something a bit different from the others titles. The game, a battle royale set within the universe of the RPG series, has been unveiled by developer Sharkmob on the company's project page.
The currently unnamed game has a teaser trailer and a brief description on Sharkmob's website. It promises a gameplay scenario "where vampire sects are at war across the streets and rooftops of Prague," and that players will be able to either go solo or team up with others. There will also be a hostile "Entity", which is going after all vampires on the map.
You'll have access to supernatural powers and weapons, and can tap into blood reserves to make yourself stronger as you hunt down your foes from other factions.
You can watch the teaser trailer below. It does not contain gameplay footage, however.
As some comments on the video point out, open street warfare goes somewhat against the concept of the "Masquerade" of the game's title, which is meant to keep vampire affairs secret--but perhaps the game will deal with this in some way.
The game is currently tracking for a late 2021 release. Platforms have not been confirmed.
There are two Vampire: The Masquerade RPGs, Bloodlines 2 and Swansong, due out in 2021. Two visual novels, Coteries of New York and Shadows of New York, were released in 2019 and 2020, respectively. Bloodlines 2 was meant to release in 2020, but along with a delay, it has lost many key creative figures involved with the project.
