Vampire: The Masquerade Bloodlines isn’t far off a sequel but before the iconic RPG sets off on a new adventure, we got news that the first soundtrack is getting a special re-release.
Coming out on 25 October 2019, the tracks that followed many adventurers as they delved into the shadows of the Los Angeles underworld come crammed onto a two-disc edition of this audio collection. Pressed onto smoky red vinyl, the score, not to be confused with the official soundtrack CD, was composed by Rik Schaffer. If you are unfamiliar with the name you’ve probably heard the accompaniment to Elder Scrolls Online at some point. This awesome set of tracks will also benefit from a remaster for the occasion, under the steady hand of Schaffer himself. Fans of the game will not only get to hold onto a gorgeous piece of vinyl, but the pack also includes a digital download code and eight previously unreleased tracks.
The First Score
If you haven’t played Vampire: The Masquerade Bloodlines then there is still plenty of time before the sequel comes out. Originally released in 2004 and based on the White Wolf role-playing game, this title follows a player character who dies and is resurrected as a fledgling bloodsucker. With the scantest of powers at hand, it is up to players to navigate the murky politics and agendas of the undead that cast a longer shadow than the towerblocks of downtown LA. Scahffers score perfectly invokes this atmosphere where danger lurks around every corner. Alongside some incredible narrative design, Vampire: The Masquerade Bloodlines found its way to become a cult classic.
While you’ll probably be able to dial up Youtube or pick up a copy of the first game, fans who want a remastered audio experience can own a piece of Vampire: The MasqueradesBloodlines by heading over to the Artists Arena website. Pre Orders are already open and will set you back $30.98 or local equivalent. Keep your eyes open for more news on the upcoming sequel here at gamespace.
