Fans of Vampire: The Masquerade - Bloodlines were beyond thrilled when Paradox Interactive recently dropped an announcement trailer for the highly-anticipated follow-up to the 2004 RPG. The video came out of nowhere, which took players by surprise, but the upcoming game looks to provide the same feel of the first title, only for the current generation of hardware and with plenty of gameplay tweaks surely in tow. That said, the developers recently took to Twitter to post a video in which they answer a host of questions, only to have more questions tossed at them on the social media site. However, this led to us learning about how long Vampire: The Masquerade - Bloodlines 2 is.
After posting the Q&A video, the Hardsuit Labs account was asked if the sequel was going to be even longer than the first game, or if it would be about the same. According to Hardsuit, an average playthrough will land somewhere between 25 and 30 hours, which is comparable to the first title.
Depends on your play style, but we think the average time will be around 25-30 hours for one playthrough.— Hardsuit Labs (@HardsuitLabs) March 30, 2019
The same Twitter user followed up that question with another one asking if that time includes the main story as well as a good chunk of the side quests featured in the game. "Yep," Hardsuit said. "We have other interesting things in the world worth exploring, and of course we are encouraging multiple playthroughs because of the branching narrative just like the first."
