White Wolf Entertainment is working with, board game publisher, Nice Game Publishing GmbH to bring you a new board game in the Vampire: The Masquerade storytelling universe — Vampire: The Masquerade – Heritage.
“We’re happy to be working with Nice Game Publishing to further expand the gameplay universe of Vampire: The Masquerade,” said Martin Ericsson, Lead Storyteller at White Wolf. “Seeing how they plan to take the popular Legacy format board game and bring Vampire into that style of play is something we are eager to see, and we’re sure our fans will be excited to play Heritage when it arrives in stores.”
Designed by Babis Giannios, this new Legacy-format game will delve into the history of the Vampire clans through usual undead tactics: political machinations, subversion and secrecy.
According to the press release:
Vampire: The Masquerade – Heritage is a 2-4 player Legacy-styled board game that takes 20-40 minutes to play. During the game, players build a bloodline from characters who complete history-based missions and challenges via Vampiric Battlegrounds. Gameplay includes the use of Intrigue cards, which change the rules of the game in thematic ways to fit characters and clans. Vampire clans grow in strength as they build a chronicle spanning 700 years of blood-soaked history. Humans can also be “embraced” and turned into fellow vampires, with new abilities and a new name. These newly embraced vampires are represented in-game by flipping their human card to the Vampire side, and returning them to their sleeve. To allow for this innovative gameplay, Vampire: The Masquerade – Heritage will come with more than 60 pre-sleeved character cards. To reach the conclusion of the 700-year timeline, players will scramble to unravel ancient mysteries and make the most of their allies and influence gathered throughout the campaign.
The game will be available for demos at SPIEL ’18 with a full release at SPIEL ’19 in Essen, Germany. Learn more about Vampire: The Masquerade – Heritage at www.vtm-heritage.com
