The World of Darkness universe is ever-expanding into the video game space as Fast Travel Games, the Swedish studio behind Apex Construct and Budget Cuts 2 will be a horror game based on the tabletop RPG. Their next big VR project, Wraith The Oblivion- Afterlife will be a VR adaptation of the tabletop game of the very same name.
Similar to the 90s tabletop version, Afterlife will have players take the role of a recently deceased person as they explore the Barclay Mansion, unraveling the many mysteries that await beyond the Shroud.
“I am a massive fan of games like Amnesia: The Dark Descent and Alien: Isolation, and have always felt that the kind of narrative-driven, exploration-focused horror these titles deliver would be perfect for VR,” said Fast Travel Games’ Erik Odeldahl. “To make such a game in the World of Darkness setting, specifically the rich and mystical world of Wraith: The Oblivion, is really a dream come true for me.” There has been no release date announced yet but Fast Travel says that Wraith The Oblivion- Afterlife is slated to arrive on all major VR platforms. A gameplay trailer and further details are expected to come during the Gamescom Now on August 27th.
White Wolf Publishing’s World of Darkness is a dark fantasy universe set in contemporary times. The critically acclaimed Vampire the Masquerade – Bloodlines, developed by the now-defunct Troika Games, is finally getting a sequel in the same WOD universe. Bloodlines 2 is a first-person RPG taking place in modern-day Seattle where players will take the role of a thinblood vampire with weak vampiric abilities that has been recently turned.
Bloodlines 2 will be releasing on PS4, Xbox One, and PC, as well as the next gen PS5 and Xbox Series X. Bloodlines 2 was initially expected to release on March 2020 but was delayed to an unspecified 2020 release date.
In addition to Afterlife and Bloodline 2, another game based in the WOD universe, Werewolf The Apocalypse – Earthblood, an Action RPG, was announced. The game follows Cahal, an eco-terrorist werewolf who has been banished by his werewolf tribe, on his war against Pentex, a corporation destroying nature and threatening the existence of the Garou werewolf clan. Werewolf The Apocalypse – Earthblood will be releasing on PC, PS4, and Xbox One somewhere in Q2/Q3 2020.
