Vampire: The Masquerade – Coteries of New York Brings a Replayable Narrative Experience to PC and Switch
Vampire: The Masquerade - Coteries of New York for PC and Nintendo Switch is poised to offer a replayable narrative experience set in the universe of the White Wolf RPG.
The next year is poised to be packed with new video games based on White Wolf’s tabletop game Vampire: The Masquerade. Hardsuit Labs and Paradox Interactive are working on Vampire: The Masquerade – Bloodlines 2, Bigben Interactive is making a Vampire: The Masquerade game of their own, and today Ritual: Crown of Horns developer Draw Distance unveiled Vampire: The Masquerade – Coteries of New York for PC, Mac, Linux, and Nintendo Switch.
While the reveal trailer above is quite vague, Coteries of New York stands out among the other Vampire: The Masquerade games for a couple reasons. First off, it is coming to Nintendo Switch while Bloodlines 2 is not. Also, while Vampire: The Masquerade – Bloodlines 2 is closer to an immersive sim, Draw Distance describes Vampire: The Masquerade – Coteries of New York immensely replayable narrative experience that has you play as a member of one of New York’s clans and go through a branching narrative to build a coterie of allies.
Because you can play as characters from a variety of different clans and there are multiple endings, Draw Distance is really touting the replayability before we have even seen gameplay. The developers are even promising to add new stories to Vampire: The Masquerade – Coteries of New York post-launch on the game’s Steam page, bolstering its replayabillity further. While it may not have the gameplay complexities of Vampire: The Masquerade – Bloodlines 2, Coteries of New York seems like it will offer a tighter narrative experience that will please both those who care more about story and Nintendo Switch owners that do not have access to Bloodlines 2.
