Vampire: The Masquerade - Bloodlines 2 is an upcoming game set in White Wolf's World of Darkness, and direct sequel to 2004's Vampire: The Masquerade – Bloodlines.

The game was announced in 2019 when Paradox Interactive released the trailer in their official YouTube channel, and is set for release in 2020 for PC and consoles.[1]

Plot

Enter the night as one of several humans inexplicably attacked in a Mass Embrace, suddenly thrown into the dangerous and ruthless vampire politics of Seattle. Tensions between the factions in Seattle are at an all-time high, and this unsanctioned attack throws the status quo into chaos. An inquest is called in order to get to the bottom of the mystery, and you’re the star witness… whether you like it or not.

Vein Pursuit

Vein Pursuit is a tabletop role-playing game preceding the events of Bloodlines 2. This chronicle offers viewers a glimpse into events occurring before the plot of the game.[2]

“A group of couriers; some of the most badass Kindred of Los Angeles, has been sent on the perilous journey from Los Angeles to Seattle, tasked with delivering precious and secret cargo to a vampire in the Emerald City. What the couriers don't realize is that betrayal lurks in their midst. However, this isn’t their story.

Vein Pursuit follows the perilous journey of the rag-tag band of Kindred who've been sent to save the couriers of the Anarch Free State and see the cargo safely north. On this journey through the backcountry of the West Coast, through deserts and mountains, all their wits and resolve will be tested. Time is running out - it’s going to be a hell of a ride!”
