In most video games that include vampires, they are usually portrayed as incredibly strong combatants, but that’s often all we get to see. If you want to dive into the, loosely used, real narrative behind the curse, The Masquerade series does this with aplomb, and now you can pre-register for the next chapter in the saga, with Vampire: The Masquerade - Coteries of New York.

First released as a tabletop game in 1991, it would be fair to assume The Masquerade series came to most people's attention in 2004 with Bloodlines. Yes, Redemption did win an award, but to this day Bloodlines has a mass following as a narrative masterpiece thanks to its exquisite look into the daily lives of vampires, living under a set of rules, the titular Masquerade, to avoid detection and ensure their survival whilst still feeding. 

Fast forward to now, and we will soon be getting our hands on the next instalment, coming to mobile. Coteries of New York follows your story as a newly turned vampire, who needs to quickly adapt to the Masquerade in the Big Apple. Meet your cursed brethren, make friends, uncover secrets, and try to master an intricate underground of mythical proportions.

You can pick between three distinct characters from the iconic Masquerade clans; a charismatic Toreador who loves art, one of the pompous Ventrue with ruling aspirations, or a Brujah who struggles the most with hunger. Each of these has its own perspective on the story, differing moral compasses, and unique power, known as Disciplines.

To survive, you will need to build up your own Coterie, a fancy way of saying a group of friends. Explore the underground and mingle with a huge cast of Kindred, including a Nosferatu detective, a Malkavian of a hundred faces, and a stubborn independent Gangrel. Grow your bond to uncover their tales and earn their trust, or perhaps betray them on your path to power.

Vampire: The Masquerade - Coteries of New York is available to pre-register on the App Store and Google Play.
