World of Darkness In-Game Video, New Details Emerge from EVE Fanfest 2012

Updated Sat, Mar 24, 2012 by Ethec

CCP revealed several new details about World of Darkness at EVE Fanfest 2012 in Reykjavik, Iceland. First, a brief recap of the new information follows:

  • Cities - WoD will offer multiple cities with real world city names. These cities will NOT be realistically modeled on their real world counterparts.
  • Princes - The political model of WoD will include princes of each city. Democracy will play some part, and princes will be able to do things like declare...
  • Bloodhunts and Permadeath - Permadeath can happen in WoD, but only during prince-declared bloodhunts. And that's all we know about that.
  • Vampire: The Masquerade will, in fact, be the basis for WoD, and the game will feature vampires at launch. Other factions may be added in the future, but will not compete for the same resources (the vampire resource is, you guessed it, blood).
  • Clans - The otiginal V:TM clans will be available in WoD

A first-ever look in-game was shown as well, with a nice nod to Fanfest attendees:

Biggest potential winner, OR biggest potential catastrophe ever. I have never seen a more daring bet for an MMO.

Please make the play regions bigger than a 250 by 250 meter postage stamp, mmmmkay?

Worst. Trailer. Ever. It doesnt tease anything... its just an animated billboard. Want to tease me, give me a taste of what the characters are like.

The developers did not want to release even this much because the game is nowhere near completion. This is only released because the felt they needed to feed the masses at fanfest SOMETHING because this game has been rumored about for many many years.

Also, this game could be the best game ever, or it could be the quickest fail ever. Lets all cross our fingers for a good age verification system so no 16yo twilighters end up in my WoD. No, you dont sparkle, you burn.
