Paradox Interactive has provided an update for Vampire: The Masquerade – Bloodlines 2, acknowledging the long wait that fans have endured for more news. In this update, Paradox confirmed ‘dedicated’ ongoing game development, revealed new screenshots, and offered refunds to those who preordered the game.
Refunds for Changes in Preorder Bonuses
According to Paradox, refunds are being offered as Bloodlines 2 has evolved over several years in development, resulting in changes to preorder bonuses. “As development continues, we will be updating the game’s editions and bonus content, and we want to provide the best value to those of you who supported us via digital pre-order after all this time,” the publisher said. The digital versions of the First Blood Edition, Unsanctioned Edition and Blood Moon Edition are seemingly remaining the same, but refunds are being offered regardless. Those keen to take advantage of the offer will need to head to Paradox’s FAQ page for more details.
New Screenshots Revealed
In addition to the refund offer, Paradox also revealed five new screenshots as teasers for progress on the game. The screenshots show a handful of intriguing environments, including a dark alley decorated with graffiti, an old church with a white tree growing in its center, the broken remains of Seattle Street, which appears to be an underground locale, a modern bar with yellow mood lighting, and a creepy, waterlogged corridor. Each of these locales is likely to play a key part in the Vampire: The Masquerade – Bloodlines 2 story.
Game Development Update
Paradox promised a firmer game update in September 2023, which will hopefully spotlight development progress and a clearer idea of the game’s release window. The publisher also confirmed that the game’s development is ongoing and “dedicated.” However, those keen to learn more about the game’s story will have to wait a bit longer.
