Vampire: The Masquerade Sequel Announced
2:51 PM | Mike Apps | Comment on this story
Gamespot recently reported that Activision has a sequel to the hit game Vampire: The Masquerade in the works. Entitled Bloodlines, the game will apparently be created using Valve's Source Engine, which is also being used to create Half-Life 2. Unlike the first game, the action in the sequel will be first person-based, making it sound like the game will be a mix of first-person-shooter and RPG.
Here's a preview of the article:
Though Bloodlines will feature numerous role-playing elements, it will also include action-packed first-person combat, and it will let players use a variety of conventional weapons, such as sniper rifles, submachine guns, and flamethrowers--though they may also need more-unusual weapons, like stake guns, to deal with their supernatural foes. Players can expect to do battle with human vampire hunters and supernatural creatures such as ghouls, werewolves, and rival vampires. "Vampire: The Masquerade - Bloodlines blends the best parts of an RPG and a first-person action game, allowing players to explore a sophisticated character development system in an open, nonlinear realm while experiencing intense action sequences," said Larry Goldberg, executive vice president of Activision Worldwide Studios. "We are going to take full advantage of Valve's Source technology to send you deep into a dark and intriguing vampire underworld filled with haunting images."While there are no plans for a Mac version at the moment, given the original was ported, there is always a chance we'll get the sequel.
