Vampire: The Masquerade—Coteries of New York has been delayed

Audio player loading…

Coteries of New York (opens in new tab) is a World of Darkness game that sounds like it's part visual novel, part RPG, and all about navigating the politics of the undead. As a members of a vampiric bloodline, you have to choose sides between the two factions of the Camarilla and the Anarchs. While previously it was announced for a December 4 release, it's now been pushed back a week and will be out on PC on December 11.

"The reason behind the release delay of Coteries of New York is simple", developers Draw Distance explain (opens in new tab), "we decided to give ourselves more time to get rid of bugs and further polish the visual side of our game."

You can check out some of those visuals in the new trailer above, which introduced the four NPC companions you'll be meeting in New York by night: Tamika the Gangrel, Agathon the Tremere, D'angelo the Nosferatu, and Hope the Malkavian. Since you can choose which clan you're a member of, presumably they'll have different reactions to you based on that.

Vampire: The Masquerade—Coteries of New York will be out on Steam (opens in new tab), Humble (opens in new tab), and GOG (opens in new tab).

Jody's first article for PC Gamer was about the audio of Alien Isolation, published in 2015, and since then he's written about why Silent Hill belongs on PC, why Recettear: An Item Shop's Tale is the best fantasy shopkeeper tycoon game, and how weird Lost Ark can get.
