Vampire: The Masquerade from White Wolf is a Tabletop RPG that changed roleplaying forever. With a game focused on politics, immortal beings and combat. Vampire: The Masquerade is returning with a fifth edition. It features a streamlined and modern rules design, beautiful new art, and brand new story experience for returning and new players alike. Powered by the innovative Hunger cycle, the game also includes rules for creating system supported character coteries, Loresheets to directly involve players with their favorite parts of the setting, and Memoriam, a new way to bring the character’s detailed backgrounds and expand on them in-session.
V5 is a return to Vampire’s original vision, moving boldly into the 21st century. While the rules have been redesigned, this new edition honors the deep story of the original, advancing the metaplot from where it left off and detailing exactly what has happened in the world of the Kindred up until tonight. The terror of the Second Inquisition, the conspiracies behind the Gehenna War, and the rekindling of the War of Ages: these are the building blocks of the modern V5 chronicle.
V5 is the foundation of our efforts to make Vampire: The Masquerade and the World of Darkness a global phenomena, and one of the biggest entertainment IPs in the world,” says White Wolf CEO Tobias Sjögren. “We are incredibly proud of what the amazing team we have working on V5 have achieved and we are really looking forward to working with Modiphius in getting this product into the hands of old, as well as new Vampire fans.”
The launch will feature three main full-color hardback books: The V5 corebook, the Anarch and Camarilla sourcebooks, as well as an official V5 dice set, V5 storyteller screen and V5 notebook. All three will be available in a high-quality slipcase along with a special edition of the corebook. It can be pre-ordered at this link.
