Shape over 700 years of history from the shadows in Vampire: The Masquerade - Heritage.  The latest instalment in the Vampire: The Masquerade series, White Wolf Entertainment and Nice Game Publishing GmbH have collaborated to release this fast-paced legacy game.

Each game, players gather characters from a common pool for their bloodlines. These characters influence different vampiric “battlegrounds” and help in fulfilling history-based missions...Besides collecting characters in their bloodline, players can also use the unique intrigue cards of the clan they are playing – changing the rules of the game in ways that fit the character of that particular clan.

Players must evade capture, concealing their vampiric nature while also attempting to retain their humanity.  Secrecy and subversion abound in this latest instalment of the established Vampire: The Masquerade series.  Players can turn mortals into vampires, granting them new names and abilities by flipping their card over to their new, vampiric identity.

In order to achieve the element of surprise, all sixty character cards will come pre-sleeved.  At the end of the 700 years, players will tally their allies, clues, and power to solve an ancient mystery in a climactic campaign conclusion.  Simon Schwanhäußer, CEO of Nice Game Publishing GmbH, has expressed his hope that this new instalment in the series will be met with fan approval;

"We’re both excited and honored to have the chance to craft a whole new tabletop experience for fans of the Vampire universe, and we will handle this beloved franchise with the care and craftsmanship it deserves.”

Vampire: The Masquerade - Heritage will be demonstrated in October 2018 at SPIEL.  Crowdfunding will start in early 2019 and the current release date is planned to coincide with SPIEL 2019 in Essen, Germany.

At 20-40 minutes runtime, it is significantly shorter than other legacy games, but the concept art currently released promises a quality game which fans of the genre should appreciate.  With seven clans, unique characters and over 100 missions, Vampire: The Masquerade - Heritage will most definitely have gamer bloodlust rising in 2019.
