Supported languages are English, French, German, Japanese, Russian, Simplified Chinese and Spanish - Latin America. English are available in both text and audio, while the rest of the languages are only in text. System requirements for the game is to be announced/confirmed.

Vampire: The Masquerade - Bloodlines 2 will be available for pre-order from these stores:
Paradox Store

Same item, multiple stores, different features and currency support (or lack thereof) for customers with different needs and preferences.
Unlike Tim Sweeney, I'm Japanese and not a native English speaker, but this is what I call competition.

Excited for a sequel but concerned that the store page mentions nothing of the environment. If it isn't Deus Ex-ish in environmental design like the first, I don't think it will be well received. I wishlisted it all the same to keep an eye on it.

I'm really excited about the game, but there are a few red flags, though.
First, is an all-time-awful multi-tiered preorder scheme. I hate preorders in general, but I won't be ranting about that.
Second, very important one, is that the game is not even released yet, but they already have a season pass listed.
Third, and the MOST important one, is that the developer - Hardsuit Labs, only has Blacklight Retribution under their belt. And once they've started working on Bloodlines 2 - they didn't have enough resources to even keep supporting their own servers (plus it means that beyond trailers and concept, they only started working on it in January-February of this year).

The only promising thing about this project is that it's definitely going to be built on UE4(e.g. it's possible to make something decent in 1 year timeframe, and there will be modern features like RTX/DXR).

They wouldn't announce if they just started. Development likely started at least two years ago, likely more.

I am so much hoping that Paradox Interactive invests enough money in this project to make it at least possible to be a very good game. VTMB1 very much deserves a good sequel and has deserved it for almost 15 years now.

I'm sure they already did, cause Hardsuit Labs pretty much dropped everything they were doing to work on Bloodlines.

Can't wait. I loved the original. The mansion level scared me.

A lot of games have season passes that's offered when they first release or you can preorder with the pass. The Witcher 3 had it.

Are you talking about the ghost house level? That was some scary stuff wasn't it?

Good fun for me though.
