Vampire: The Masquerade is the latest franchise to expand into the battle royale front with some intriguing gameplay implications
A battle royale in a world full of secrecy
Alright, this seems like it makes sense. The whole lore around The Masquerade is that it’s a law that vampires must follow. You know, so humans don’t find out that bloodsucking monsters stalk the streets at night. But, having an all-out war with nocturnal powers and guns in the streets and on the rooftops kind of defeats the purpose of it all. Doesn’t it? You can check out the trailer below and even visit the comments to see just how happy fans are about another battle royale game set in a world where a battle royale just doesn’t make sense.
More info about the game that doesn’t help your doubting attitude
Anyhow, more information was released about Vampire: The Masquerade battle royale experiment. The masquerade is a mechanic in the game. Players can also feed, use disciplines, and take on the Second Inquisition and the Society of Saint Leopold. The devs say they’ve studied the source material and won’t ruin the lore. Everything you’ve seen in that highly disliked game teaser takes place during a unique and special night in Prague. Players get to participate in whatever that event is, but after a huge Kindred gathering goes wrong, it’s each vampire for himself. Well, you can play with your coterie and try to survive together.
Is this another vampiric failure like Nosgoth?
I remember a vampire game that did something like this. Remember Nosgoth? A Legacy of Kain game that also went in a direction that fans of the series hated. Oh, you don’t remember that game? Well, it didn’t do so well, so it was quickly pushed into obscurity. I have a feeling the same will happen with this game.
