Vampire The Masquerade 5th Edition - Modiphius

"Vampire: The Masquerade, the classic that changed role-playing games forever, returns in a fifth edition! V5 features a streamlined and modern rules design, beautiful new full-colour art, and a rich story experience for new and returning players.

Powered by the innovative Hunger cycle, the game also includes rules for creating system supported character coteries, Loresheets to directly involve players with their favourite parts of the setting, and Memoriam, a new way to bring the character's detailed backgrounds and expand on them in-session."

Pre-orders for the new book go live on Saturday 28th April and the game will start to hit your tabletops in August and September with more books coming out towards the end of the year.

"V5 is the foundation of our efforts to make Vampire: The Masquerade and the World of Darkness a global phenomenon, and one of the world biggest entertainment IPs”, says White Wolf CEO Tobias Sjögren. “We are incredibly proud of what the amazing team working on V5 have achieved and we are really looking forward to working with Mödiphious getting this product in the hands of old as well as new Vampire fans."

Modiphius will be offering up...

  • Vampire: The Masquerade V5 Core Book
  • Anarch Sourcebook
  • Camarilla Sourcebook
  • Official V5 Dice Set
  • V5 Storyteller Screen
  • V5 Notebook

I played a lot of Werewolf: The Apocalypse as a teenager but we did do a fair few sessions of Vampire: The Masquerade. It had a very different feel to Werewolf (as you might imagine) and was more about intrigue than tearing things in half. I am interested to see what they do with this going forward as World Of Darkness certainly informed me about a different style of role-playing game away from dungeon crawling and dice chucking.

Will you be getting the V5 book?
