IGN has shared a new video, showing 28 minutes of brand new gameplay footage from the Gamescom 2019 demo of Vampire: The Masquerade – Bloodlines 2. Hardsuit Labs announced recently that it will use ray tracing in order to enhance the game’s lighting and reflections. However, it appears that this video does not feature any RTX effects.
For example, you can easily notice the screen-space reflection artifacts on some characters when the player enters the first bar. Not only that, but the game is really choppy at this stage of development. Seriously, some of the scenes appear to be running at lower than 30fps. The game targets a 2020 release so here is hoping that it will receive a major performance boost.
Vampire: The Masquerade – Bloodlines 2 is the successor to the cult-classic Vampire: The Masquerade – Bloodlines. The game will feature reactive storytelling, fast-paced combat, and compelling characters with their own hidden motives.
In Vampire: The Masquerade – Bloodlines 2, players will immerse themselves in the World of Darkness and live out their vampire fantasy in a city filled with intriguing characters that react to their choices. According to the game’s description, their unique disciplines are a weapon in their forward-driving, fast-moving, melee-focussed combat system.
