A separate Vampire: The Masquerade single-player narrative experience announced

I'll get my Coterie.

All eyes might be on Vampire: The Masquerade - Bloodlines 2 but it's not due for release until next year. There is, however, something very closely related you can snack on before then - a new game called Vampire: The Masquerade - Coteries of New York.

It's a single-player narrative experience made by a Polish company called Draw Distance - formerly known as iFun4All, maker of chirpy murder scene clear-up game Serial Cleaner. And Coteries of New York is coming to PC and Switch in Q4 this year, obviously with World of Darkness IP holder Paradox's blessing.

Coteries is set squarely in the fifth edition of Vampire: The Masquerade lore. In it, you'll be able to belong to one of several vampire clans, each with their own way of doing things, and you'll see their different ethical approaches born out in dialogue and gameplay. And the choices you make will steer you towards one of a number of endings.

However, for now, there's not much else to go on, bar a very brief trailer.
