Announced last week, Vampire: The Masquerade - Bloodlines 2 has quickly become one of the most talked about new RPGs currently in development. All based on the cult classic status of the original, and it's genre-defining blend of the real and the supernatural. On track for a 2020 release, today comes word that the PC release will fully support NVIDIA's new high-end range of GPUs.
With the announcement stating, "NVIDIA is the official graphics partner for Vampire: The Masquerade - Bloodlines 2, meaning that we will work closely with Paradox to integrate real-time ray tracing effects and performance-enhancing DLSS technology, to deliver the best possible experience for PC gamers."
After the successful implementation of RTX tech in Metro Exodus, this is great news because things like real-time ray tracing can work wonders in adding to the immersion of a moody or darker game. Of course, with the recent news that the RTX tray-tracing will be available to all high-end GeForce GTX cards this means more players will have access to the features. RTX tech like DLSS though, is apparently exclusive to RTX cards with Tensor-cores.
As far as Vampire: The Masquerade - Bloodlines 2 is concerned, all we have to go on so far is the following teaser trailer.
With a 30-minute behind closed doors demo on hand at GDC, we can probably expect to see a deeper dive at E3 as development is said to be pretty far along. With Paradox also confirming that the game will support mods.
“Fans of the original Bloodlines have been hungry for a sequel for a long time, and we began to hear those suggestions -- well, demands -- as soon as we began to work with the World of Darkness,” said Ebba Ljungerud, CEO of Paradox Interactive. “We all understood what this opportunity could mean, but it was essential for both us and for Hardsuit Labs that any sequel should be done properly; a true successor guided by the people who knew what made the original so special. Keeping this game a secret for the last few years has been quite the Masquerade for us! It’s both exciting and relieving to finally let everybody know what we have in store for them.”
