For the Future Games Show Spring Showcase, publisher NACON and developer Big Bad Wolf Studio have unveiled a new video, outlining the RPG mechanics of the game. Skills, disciplines, a hunger for blood, and more; how you manage these affects the way you approach the game.

By customizing the character sheets, players will have numerous options. But if they focus on one single playstyle, they will develop Talents, which are permanent bonuses. The more they use a Skill or a Discipline, the higher their chances of success will be. Traits are positive or negative effects influenced by the success or failure of your actions, or impacted by certain decisions.

NPCs also have their own character sheets, with strengths and weaknesses. When players use Skills or Disciplines during interactions with them, the NPCs will defend with their stats. Inspired by the pen and paper experience, a dice roll will decide success or failure in case of a tie.

When a night of celebration turns to bloodshed, the choices they make will define the fate of Boston. The game is coming to Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, PC on May 19th, and later to Nintendo Switch.
