It could be something like the Bloodhunt in Bloodlines where normal humans were convinced to stay indoor due to some terror attack, gas leak fake news or similar.
Is this just your own speculation or do we have a ingame explanation which i have clearly miss over the years?

Can anybody remind me what we know about Swansong? Will this be first person, third person or just another novel thing?

Pretty sure he's speculating since he said "It could be something like the Bloodhunt..." rather than "It is like the Bloodhunt."
As for convincing people to stay indoors, that's still ridiculous for VtM to have full-on glitzy combat with powers like Celerity and Potence in city intersections, main roads, etc. This whole thing is absurd.

Was quoting Wilhelm and never posted lol..

Apex was OK. Loved playing Wraith. Decent class saved a good few butts. But recently read they fubar the class ;/


Played the healer one with the drones. But deploying late on gave you away position wise.

Maybe they will justify it as the Sabbath crashing someone's party?  :justabite:
I think you can explain the scenario one way or the other, it's not impossible. It's just a little odd, but then again Bloodlines 2 was supposed to be already out, maybe it would have made more sense in a "let's expand the IP into new territories now that it's back in the collective consciousness" world.

She is paid
I don't trust anything Outstar has said since she joined White Wolf.  She is a Paradox shill now and will never speak against her employer.


Never listened to her ever. I don't value her opinion.

I have more issues with all vampires killing each other until only one is left. What about the factions?

Yes sir! A meeting in Prague goes very badly (somehow), resulting in many Kindred warring one night. The game is free to play, though there are cosmetics which can be purchased. The game is NOT pay-to-win. It will NOT be an Epic exclusive. Kindred WILL feed in the game. The Masquerade IS present and you must maintain it while you play, as mortals are around. The Second Inquisition (Hunters), specifically the Society of Leopold, are present and will play some part in the game. They have art for one of its members in the video, clad in armor.
I believe that covers everything revealed in the video. More information will be revealed I think...next week? The developers will be talking about it with her on the channel, and will give more details then.
If what she says is true, then I no longer hold the same stances as I did before, though I still don't think this is a game I will enjoy, or that it is the type of game most VtM fans will enjoy. However, Outstar did state in the video that they are hoping to get people to see VtM who normally don't by putting out this free game, so as to get them interested in the franchise.

I guess it could be interesting if it has npc threats you need to avoid combined with assasin creed multiplayer stealth.
More likely it is going to be a generic game with a wod paintjob and some convoluted lore explanation.

Here's a developer interview Outstar did on the WoD channel with the developer of the Battle Royale VtM game. Um...nothing really relevant here that we didn't already know except that they intend to add more playable clans (beyond Brujah, Toreador, and Nosferatu) sometime after launch, and that they will try to get a beta out sometime before the official big launch.

Not really big news in my opinion. Unsure how Tremere would end up being fun considering shooting lightning at people or making them explode without explosive ordinance is a clear Masquerade breach and you should come close to insta-killing people with Tremere Disciplines or else the Tremere are not lore-friendly, but insta-killing people (and more importantly GETTING insta-killed) sounds pretty aggravating.
But I digress. I'm overthinking what doesn't sound at all like a game of interest to me. =/

Ok they have nothing interesting to say and nothing exactly to show. So why reveal this game at this moment where most of the community is pissed how you handled Bloodlines 2? Sorry but this just stupid and shows that they want to milk the World of Darkness, mainly Vampire.

As far as I know they were forced due to a leak. I agree with milking the franchise though, look at all the novels!

I don´t mind that they made more Werewolf and Wraith games but there are too many Vampire games.
Of course this would be great if they are good games but most are average at best.

My first reaction was "This is terrible," but the more I see of it the more I'm okay with it. When licensing out the IP you never really know what will be awesome and what will be trash. People tend to remember the best and forget the worst (thinking of Warhammer licensing their IP out). 


Also, hi to all the old heads still here!  I see Wesp (obv) and Radical and MooCHa!  o/  Hope you've all been well.
