After the circling of numerous rumours, Vampire: The Masquerade - Bloodlines 2 has finally been officially announced at a GDC keynote. It's coming to PS4 in the early months of 2020, and you can get a taste of the action on offer in the announcement trailer above.

Confirmed to be a direct sequel to the 2004 original that only appeared on PC, you'll continue the story that ignites the war for Seattle's blood trade. "Immerse yourself in the World of Darkness and live out your vampire fantasy in a city filled with intriguing characters that react to your choices. You and your unique disciplines are a weapon in our forward-driving, fast-moving, melee-focused combat system. Your power will grow as you advance, but remember to uphold the Masquerade and guard your humanity... or face the consequences."

Written by Brian Mitsoda, Cara Ellison, and the esteemed Chris Avellone, you'll get to explore the seamless hub-world of Seattle without any quest markers from the first-person perspective. NPCs will react to your actions and avoid areas where you're spotted doing your vampiric biddings, while telekinetic powers allow you to slip into grates and alleyways inaccessible to the average human being.

Vampire: The Masquerade - Bloodlines 2 looks set to be a grand sequel, so it is one you're hotly anticipating? Sink your teeth into the comments below.
