Vampire: The Masquerade – Bloodlines 2 Collector’s Edition Revealed; Plus Damsel Returns
Ah, I see you’ve been waiting for quite some time to hear about the collector’s edition, eh Kindred?
Dropping the act, Vampire: The Masquerade – Bloodlines 2’s collector’s edition has finally been revealed — prime and juicy for your discerning tastes. This mega pack of goodies is exactly what any observer of The Masquerade, as in it extends beyond just the video game and into the original pen and paper RPG. Packed in this $200 edition of the upcoming game is:
- A 28cm resin statue of Elif
- A poster of the map of Seattle
- A steelbook case featuring the still currently unknown “box art” Kindred
- The soundtrack on a 7″ Vinyl
- Vampire: The Masquerade 5th Edition Corebook (Digital Download)
- 3 DLC packs: First Blood Pre-Order Pack, Unsanctioned Blood Pack, Season of the Wolf Pass
The digital download of Vampire: The Masquerade 5th Edition is absolutely fantastic for anyone looking to dive into the franchise beyond just the video game, or a great way for fans of all of the VTM mythos to get their Bloodlines 2 friends to jump into the game that started it all. That Elif statue is also totally awesome looking, and I’d be more than happy to add a clearly evil and sadistic vampire goth girlfriend to my mantle. On top of all this, if you’ve already pre-ordered the game you can pre-order the collector’s edition as a stand-alone, without the game, discounting the price of the game itself!
Beyond just the collector’s edition, we also got a new (if very, very brief) teaser for the game, highlighting the return of a fan-favorite Vampire: The Masquerade – Bloodlines character:
Damsel, the ‘Damsel of Distress’ Brujah anarchist revolutionary from Bloodlines 1 has returned to exact terror on those who would look down on their Kindred brethren. It’s a whole hell of a lot of fun to know that she’s back (with what sounds like her original voice, Courtenay Taylor, returning!) and bridging the gap between the first and second games. It’s also tons of fun to see her looking pretty much exactly the same, considering that Kindred don’t age, and she has no real reason to change her wardrobe anymore. We’re looking forward to seeing more.
Unfortunately, none of this has come with a release date reveal, but the collector’s edition still has Vampire: The Masquerade – Bloodlines 2 releasing this year, so at least there’s that. It’s possible that it could be a next-gen launch title, which would have its release be Vampire: The Masqueradethis holiday season. We’ll keep you updated!
