Vampire: The Masquerade – Bloodlines 2 is a follow-up to 2004 PC title Vampire: The Masquerade – Bloodlines. Bloodlines 2 returns players to the world of the Masquerade, an agreement between all the vampire clans that requires vampires do not reveal themselves to the world. Operating behind that veil, players must maneuver the political backdrop of a Seattle run by vampires from the shadows. Paradox Interactive released a new teaser trailer and screenshots, as well as an introduction video for The Chinese Room.
