Word out of The Grand Masquerade is that the long-under-wraps WoD MMO is going to be based on Vampire: The Masquerade, and releasing 2012 at the earliest. More news as it arrives.
UPDATE #1: Dodgy video of the trailer shown:
UPDATE #2: Looks like it’s called “World of Darkness”. But it’ll be based on Vampire: The Masquerade (which, for those not in the know, is the older version of the Vampire RPG.)
UPDATE #3: “MMO will have a focus on player politics and social interaction.” Not unexpected, given it’s CCP, and given the nature of the property itself. If it was all instanced dungeon-crawls… well that’d be silly.
UPDATE #4: Confirmed via multiple reports to be Vampire-only. At least at first. We’ll all be curious to find out just how much this particular door has been left ajar.
UPDATE #5: Three terms that were tossed out in terms of playstyles the game will enable were “Sandbox,” “Themepark,” and “Coffee Shop.”
UPDATE #6: Video replaced with a high-quality version. Bald dude still out front.
