As a vampire, you will have to control your craving for food, or the Beast that lies within you will eventually take over. You will be able to use Disciplines to help you in your fights or dialogues, but the more you use them, the more your blood lust will increase.

The choice of your character and his/her respective clans will not only determine their powers (Disciplines); you will live completely different situations and will witness the events of the game from different perspectives along with two of the four NPCs that will come to join you in the unfolding of the story: a Tremere sorcerer, a Nosferatu detective, a Gangrel with a conflict of loyalties and a Malkavian with multiple personalities on the Net.

A single game will not be enough to discover all that this amazing narrative and immersive experience, set in the fascinating universe of Vampire: The Masquerade 5th Edition, will offer you. Vampire: The Masquerade – Coteries of New York and Vampire: The Masquerade – Shadows of New York will arrive in a single physical release for Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4 and PC by Spring 2021.
