Somebody has to fill the void left by the closure of Telltale Games, right? And what better place to do it in than the robust world of Vampire: The Masquerade? With news on the sequel to Troika Games’ 2004 action RPG, Vampire: The Masquerade - Bloodlines, slowly heating up, it seems like the timing was just right to announce another title in the suddenly-revitalized franchise, which will this time be a story-driven, narrative adventure game from Polish studio Draw Distance.
An officially-licensed part of the franchise canon, Vampire: The Masquerade - Coteries of New York is headed to the east coast, unlike Bloodlines 2, which will take place in Seattle. The game is being described as an "atmospheric narrative experience" that is sure to be a fun change of place from what fans are used to from the previous game as well as the tabletop RPG.
The game will follow the conflict between two vampiric factions: the traditionalist Camarilla and the fiercely independent Anarchs among the iconic landmarks and night lights of The Big Apple. Players will have to choose a clan and form a coterie to work to consolidate power and come out ahead in the underground world of the undead.
Vampire: The Masquerade - Coteries of New York is due out sometime during the fourth quarter of this year and will be available on PC and Nintendo Switch. Keep an eye on Dead Entertainment for all the latest news and updates in the coming months.
