Vampire: The Masquerade - Justice
See how you can be the best Vampire in the upcoming VR title of Vampire: The Masquerade – Justice sneaking out there very soon
Those looking for something new to play with their VR and PSVR2 headsets out there need to get ready, as Vampire: The Masquerade – Justice is hitting them all on November 2nd. This is not the massive news out there for the game with Fast Travel Games offering that nugget up a while ago. The bigger thing we have to share with you today is that we get to see the various ways we will play as our vampire in the game. All with some new gameplay and a walkthrough with the creative director of the game. Get ready to drain some blood and lurk in some shadows with what we have to share with you for the game today.
Unlike the team’s previous game in VR out there, Vampire: The Masquerade – Justice looks like it is going with a little more on the action and activity side of things instead. We are going to be able to use the various powers to hide and move about while also being able to run right in and get into VR slapping fights. That is how the motion looks here once we have to get into combat if we so fail to sneak. There is also a crossbow that our vampire can use in the mix, although it does not look as if it is going to be something to do some direct staking in the mix. Not that it would do all too much for the version of this monster out there, but it is something to allow for some range in the fight.
Vampire: The Masquerade – Justice — PSVR2 Gameplay Walkthrough
Dive into the world of Vampire: The Masquerade – Justice with this extended gameplay preview, captured on PS VR2! Fast Travel Games is showing you two ways to play through one of the campaign’s core missions before the game launches on Meta Quest 2/3/Pro and PS VR2 on November 2nd!
Creative Director Erik Odeldahl walks you through Justice’s open-ended design, highlighting how players are able to choose their own play style as they explore the streets of Venice. Will you punish the guilty with an array of brutal abilities? Or will you stick to the shadows and slip past unseen?
To be honest, this footage makes Vampire: The Masquerade – Justice look closer to games like Dishonored when it all boils down. Even the power of Blink is in here. Not to mention that there are various other abilities that a general character in the setting would not have at their disposal, but then this would not be a great video game. I am a little taken back that it is another in Vampire: The Masquerade setting that leans into combat more than anything that the IP is known for, but I guess some things just work better for a tabletop setting, and will never make it into the video game space in a perfect way. Unless it is hidden in there with the combat being the best way to sell the game to the masses instead.
Is this how you were expecting to play as your vampire in the VR space or did you think it would go down a little differently? Does it feel like a VR version of the other games or have we just been primed to think that way based on their success in the past? Could we ever get a true title in the mix of the IP that is closer to the tabletop versions or will it always be about the nightly hunt? Head into the comments to discuss this all and leave some fun comments. We will offer up what we can for Vampire: The Masquerade – Justice, so please keep on checking back for all of those updates and everything else we can find to share out there.
