Vampire: The Masquerade - Bloodlines takes place in the World of Darkness, an RPG universe licensed from paper-and-pencil RPG company, White Wolf. The World of Darkness is much like our own, save that on this Earth, vampires are real and have had a hand in influencing a great deal of human history. The player will portray an unnamed, newly created vampire living under the oppressive thumb of the brutal Prince of Los Angeles, Sebastian La Croix. After the player's creator is killed for creating you without permission, you get to live on the sufferance of the Prince, providing you find a way to make yourself useful. That's how you end up where our demo started -- in a run-down garret in Santa Monica that acts as your haven, a place to hide from the sun.
Gamers play as a member of one of seven different Vampire Clans, each with their own unique strengths and weaknesses. Utilizing up to 12 different vampire powers including supernatural speed, invisibility, mind control and superhuman strength, players embark on quests, earning experience points to build their character and increase powers, skills and traits. As they progress through the game, players will rise up through the ranks of Vampire Society to become the most powerful creature of the night.
