PC Gamer has a 20 min Bloodlines 2 game play video posted from their visit at E3. To put this into context the combat seems 'bad' because the reporter was NOT playing the game, a dev from Paradox was who is being reported was very "tired" and thus his timing was off badly. Paradox acknowledges this and says they will have a better video up soon. None the less the video highlights some amazing footage, combat misses aside. And I give props to Donovan on last nights WoDCast, he called it, the female at the club was Tremere.

Here is the blurb from PC Gamer about what they saw, video below;
 

The game is in pre-alpha, so everything may be subject to change (like those dance moves at the beginning, maybe), but what we got to see of Seattle looks promising in a few ways.

Phil wasn't actually playing the game, to be clear, but he was directing the decision-making. "For context, I ended up roleplaying a deadbeat vampire asshole who thinks he's got the skills to coerce people but always fucks it up and ends up in combat," he told me. "This was, of course, accidental at first, but increasingly deliberate."

I like the sound of that, and the variety of dialogue options.

The combat looks a bit rough in this early state—though I find the wildly ragdolling enemies endearing, as they've gone out of fashion—but again, this was a pre-alpha demo, and Bloodlines 2 isn't out until March 2020.

Harlequin aka Peter has been in table top RPGs since 1982 and took his passion online in the mid 80s by co-developing a BBS D&D style multi-player door game. In the early 2000s he ran his own role-play enforced Ultima Online server for several years, then moved over to running a Neverwinter Nights server for several years more after that. Later he opened up and ran NWN2News.net which was a site dedicated to the then in development NWN2. He did that for for 4 years with a peak of over 10 million page views a month. He then took a break from community building. When the WoD MMO was rumored he hopped on the bandwagon and for 5 years ran WoD News with over a thousand registered members and millions of page views a month. WoD News broke exclusive news and interviews during that time, was referenced by sites such as Blues News & PC Gamer.
