Paradox Interactive have been teasing the new Vampire game for a while now, first through the Tender app and now through their Twitter account. The latter yielded more actual info as it provided actual screenshots, concept art and a date.

By date, we don't mean the one you could find on Tender which is Paradox Interactive's way of playing a practical joke on the real-life version of the dating app that doubled as promotional material for the upcoming, but officially unannounced, Vampire game. 

That stands to be changed soon as the company mentioned an announcement coming on 21 March 2019 at the end of a tweet string that provided six new screenshots and pieces of concept art. You can see them all in the gallery below or on the official Twitter.

Once again, Paradox didn't say explicitly that this is the next Vampire game but between Tender's references to blood, literal night in all of the screenshots and concept art, and never shooting down any fans' replies about it being a Vampire game, it is all but confirmed that it will be another RPG blood sucking fest.

Sadly for fans of the original Vampire: The Masquerade Bloodlines, the creative minds behind that game have since moved on and some of them are currently working on The Outer Worlds. It remains to be seen whether Paradox will manage to meet the high expectations that ironically enough came from one of the buggiest and least polished games to date.

What made Bloodlines special was the extensive RPG system and amazing immersion that are often overlooked in modern game development, so let's hope the developers don't drop the ball on this one as it could be a proper game changer in the industry.

Meanwhile, one of the concept art pieces included a building that looks like Pacific Tower, meaning the next Vampire game more than likely takes place in Seattle. It should prove to be a great setting for the dark and moody nature of the Vampire universe.
