Not everyone out there was able to head out to PDXCON recently, which means that many of us missed out on the new updates for Vampire: The Masquerade — Bloodlines 2 that may have dropped out there. Sure, we could have watched all of the extra recaps from those that were out there and try to piece things together. That or we can go right to the source and hear a bit more on what Hardsuit Labs opted to share out there. You have most likely figured out that is what we have here for Bloodlines 2 today. Something nice given that the last big update was that the game was going to be delayed a bit to "polish" it up a bit more. Sadly, something else that have to deal with again.
The oddest thing about all of this, though, is that it does not seem like much else in terms of new information was shown or discussed out there for Bloodlines 2 based on what we have here now. Outside of a few new screenshots that were used in the presentations, all we really have here is a bit more on the description of the game's combat and how some of the Hub areas were designed. The combat being something more that is easy to learn but hard to master. That was what they sure watched to drive home without actually showing it off here. Even in this hands-off demo they had for Bloodlines 2. Maybe this was more on why they needed more time to work on the game and not to clean up the game's look? This could also not be the full showing of what was out there. I know I would have rather seen a whole lot more of the gameplay instead of people talking…
Vampire: The Masquerade — Bloodlines 2 — PDXCON Recap
For those of you who weren't able to join us in Funkhaus, Berlin for PDXCON 2019 we've put together a little something, sharing some highlights of the talks and presentations from the Bloodlines 2 team.
Was there really much more shown off for Bloodlines 2 that we did not have back at E3? Do you think we will truly have an easy combat style in the game and not feel like a "god" quickly or will it truly find that balance with the storytelling of it all? When do you think we will see some more solid gameplay out there for us to enjoy or will it be held off for a lot longer? Let us all know down in the comments and then feel free to discuss. For more on Vampire: The Masquerade — Bloodlines 2 as we march on, be sure to keep checking in here. We will keep all of those updates coming at you as best as we can.
