PC Gamer: Everything we know about Vampire: The Masquerade—Bloodlines 2

PC Gamer did a round up article about what we know about BL2, honestly nothing they talk about isn't already on our info page but if you are looking for a more detailed overview then check out their article. Here is a snip;

Can I choose my faction?

Absolutely. Another main difference between the original Bloodlines and Bloodlines 2 is that the story won't be so linear this time around. Given the volatility between vampire factions in Seattle, you'll not only be able to pledge your allegiance to one of them, but you can change your mind at any time. Be a double agent. Go rouge. Be completely loyal to one faction. Whatever you want.

You could do this in the original Bloodlines, but on a much smaller scale. You were given only one opportunity to choose between three factions—Camarilla, Sabbat, Anarchs—or you could become a lone wolf. Paradox hasn't said exactly what factions will be available in Bloodlines 2, but at least choosing between them will be more fluid this time around and more heavily integrated into the story.
 

Anything else we know?

Vampire: The Masquerade—Bloodlines 2 will support ray tracing and DLSS—as Nvidia announced March 21—and mods The original game supported mods as well, so it only makes sense to allow that again this time around. And ray tracing/DLSS support also seems like a no-brainer. Any kind of vampire story is generally cast in a dark and ominous world (because of the whole not being able to go in the sun thing), so ray tracing will definitely make those midnight shadows at the end of an alleyway look more threatening to both humans and the supernatural alike.

Also, it wouldn't be a complete vampire party if a few developers didn’t return for more blood. Brian Mitsoda, designer and writer of the original Bloodlines, is on board again as Bloodlines 2's lead narrative designer. Rik Schaffer, who composed the OST on the original Bloodlines, confirmed via fan email that he has already been working on the Bloodlines 2 score over the last year as the main composer.

Full biography

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.
