Vampire: The Masquerade Getting a Stand-Alone Expansion
According to publisher Draw Distance, Shadows of New York will bring a more unique and personal story to Vampire: The Masquerade – Coteries of New York. Gamers will investigate the murder of one of New York’s most powerful vampires as a member of the Lasombra clan. Shadows of New York acts as a stand-alone expansion which can be enjoyed by anyone and new fans of the visual novel can jump on board the new story right away. Vampire: The Masquerade – Shadows of New York releases for the Nintendo Switch, PS4, Xbox One and PC later this year.
Among the new content coming to Vampire: The Masquerade with Shadows of New York include new characters, new locations and an original soundtrack. Gamers play as a member of the Lasombra clan, long-time rivals of the Camarilla. Apparently gamers will have to master the shadows to communicate with inhabitants of the Other Side while narrowly avoiding the threat of Oblivion lurking around every corner. This series is based off a classic tabletop RPG which finally made its way to consoles originally in 2004.
Gamers are tasked with more than the investigation of New York’s most powerful vampire, as they’ll have to feed their hunger for blood in the Big Apple and choices they make are important to the plot. Each choice will alter the path your character takes because it changes their way of thinking as you progress and Draw Distance assures fans that one play through won’t be enough. There are many interesting vignettes across the city and gamers can communicate and forge relationships with a strange cast of characters as they progress through New York City.
