Chinatown Hub DLC?
« on: August 04, 2020, 05:56:24 pm »
I read over the past days here in the forum that Chinatown is no surprising the least interessing hub in Bloodlines 1. Well everyone knowsthat Chinatown is an underdelevelop area so there could be a potential chance for the Bloodlines 2 devs tomake atleast Seattle´s chinatown worth the visit. Maybe Brian Mitsoda has Bloodlines 1 unused material to recreate in a Bloodlines 2 DLC.I am really not a fan of Bloodlines 1 Chinatown and it´s weird to write this suggestion in favor for other stuff but i not gonna liethe appeal of a Chinatown Hub done right is something that (some) Devs would atleast think about.

Last but not least why DLC? Well Chinatown is very likely not a part of the main game (hubs).These are Pioneer Square (Bloodlines 1 starting hub similar to Santa Monica), South Lake Union (similar to Hollywood but now as Camarilla area),
 University and Aurora (new Downtown?)

Sorry couldn´t find a larger pic than this at the moment.

Well we get more than one DLC.  :razz:


The two (hopeful three) Clan DLCs are free so they aren´t technically part of the Season of the Wolf Season Pass which include paid extra content.The big expansion is obviously about the werewolves so why can´t Storypack 1 or 2 be something about Seattle Chinatown?

Josh (Strange Adventures on YouTube) thinks that Season of the Wolf will be paid Gangrel story items (with the playable Gangrel clan being free, of course), but I hope he's wrong. I would MUCH prefer Garou (werewolf) interactions, ranging from dialogue to violence and WoD political scheming.

Chinatown hub looked like it was made in complete rush in VtMB 1 (I guess it probably was), therefore, I have nothing against Bloodlines 2 postponing...

I like it being postponed so that we'll get a complete game, but I also wince at the postponement since the longer it stays in development, the less profits Paradox makes. If Paradox doesn't bring in enough money, they may not risk making another Bloodlines-style World of Darkness game (i.e. an immersive sim). Since they own the licenses, no other production company could make a VtM video game. We would be stuck with only visual novels as we've been getting of late, and other low-risk/low-cost games that don't capture the sheer immersion an immersive sim can.

A sad reality that is... We'll see what happens, I'll see to support developers even if Brian's not a member of the team anymore. He did participate, so there will be some fragments of his work in it, after all.
