Vampire: The Masquerade – Bloodlines 2 is one meaty game title – and not one we can say we’re fond of typing. This extended gameplay trailer for E3 2019, showcasing the long-awaited sequel’s “reactive storytelling, fast-paced combat, and compelling characters”, deserves to be shared all the same, though.

“Created in an act of vampiric insurrection, players start the game as a fledgling Thinblood whose existence ignites a war among the vampire factions in Seattle,” the blurb reads. “To survive in vampire society, players will enter into uneasy alliances with Seattle’s factions and join one of the full-blood vampire clans while stalking the city streets for prey, manoeuvring complex political relationships, and balancing the need for blood against their withering humanity.”
