Now that we had a nice look at the visuals for Vampire: The Masquerade — Bloodlines 2 earlier in the week, it is time to see just how all of that will function in practice.

Most of which looks like it is the longer version of the bits we have seen already for Bloodlines 2 and what was shown off at previous events, but it is for the public now and we can all enjoy. Also see just how this may run on our PC, Xbox One, and PS4 when it launches next year. You know, the normal stuff.
What is interesting to note here is that it looks like the combat is close to the same as I remember from the last title in the franchise. There are a few extra animations and "flare" to it here for Bloodlines 2, but it looks the same. It is interesting to see that we can use the fog form to get sucked through air vents to solve puzzles or continue our stealth play.
