Vampire: The Masquerade - Bloodlines E3 2003 Trailer:
Activision has announced that Tolka Games--responsible for Arcanum--is working on a new RPG called Vampire: The Masquerade - Bloodlines.
Aside from a title containing too much punctuation, the game will sport a first-person viewpoint and will be powered by--wait for it--Valve's new Half Life 2 Source engine.
Said to include RPG elements and high-intensity first-person combat, the game will let the player use a wide variety of weaponry (sniper rifles, flamethrowers, the standard stuff), including "stake guns" (handy, I suppose, when trying to take down a vampire).
Unlike the first game, Bloodlines offers a more open-ended system of character design and development. Players can start the game by picking from among seven different vampire clans, which determines the basic template for a character's personality and capabilities, and further specialize in different areas by spending experience points to upgrade special skills.
The game is scheduled for release sometime in 2004.
