IMG Previews Vampire: The Masquerade - Redemption
3:19 PM | IMG News | Comment on this story

IMG has posted a new preview today, providing an early glimpse of MacSoft's upcoming thriller, Vampire: The Masquerade - Redemption . The game features an engaging storyline coupled with gorgeous 3D graphics based on the Nod engine. The gameplay is a mix of RPG and adventuring, and you must continually balance your Humanity in order to stay sane. While the multilplayer wasn't working yet in the Mac build, the preview discusses the single-player storyline and features in detail. Here's an excerpt:

The engine can render both indoor and outdoor scenes, and while the environments are much smaller than the epic landscapes of Summoner the amount of detail is vast. Many interactive elements abound including hidden traps and switches, working machinery and caches of treasure.


The Nod engine is also quite good at rendering scenes of horror and gore make no mistake, this is not a game for the timid! If the idea of undead rats and walking corpses makes you uneasy, then the horrors you will encounter later in the game might send you screaming from the room trust me, the Vampires are just the beginning.

Head over now and read through the rest of the preview for much more information on this horror-inspired title. Make sure you check out the three-minute movie of actual gameplay; we will post a higher-resolution version of the movie in the near future.
