Xbox Series X 'Vampire The Masquerade: Bloodlines 2' showcases next-gen gameplay

Vampire The Masquerade (VtM) is a cult RPG series that imagines what life would be like if vampires were a thriving part of modern society. Albeit, a hidden part of society. "The Masquerade" specifically refers to the common rule among all vampires that they must stay hidden from public view — the humans they feed on. As a new-born vampire in Bloodlines 2, it's on you to forge your way through this murky world of cut-throat politics and territorial faction wars, growing in power as you go.

VtM: Bloodlines 2 was recently delayed, but is still set to launch later in 2020. At Microsoft's Xbox Series X gameplay showcase event, we got a glimpse at Bloodlines 2 gameplay, and it's looking quite tasty.

As a new Vampire turned out in the open, you're the reluctant witness to a Vampiric crime that has thrown the political landscape into chaos. Throughout, you'll be tasked to navigate an old-school RPG branching narrative, where your choices often come with dire consequences.

Vampire The Masquerade: Bloodlines 2 will launch sometime in the second half of 2020, and will support Xbox Smart Delivery, allowing you to buy once and play across both Xbox One consoles and Xbox Series X.
