Paradox Is Teasing A New Vampire: The Masquerade Game With A Bloodsucking Dating Site

Paradox just put up a fake dating website called Tender, which has hints to vampires and specific lore from Vampire: The Masquerade.

The fans of Vampire: The Masquerade have been waiting for a new video game based on the property since 2004 when Vampire: The Masquerade - Bloodlines was released on PC. Bloodlines is considered to be one of the greatest RPGs of all time and it still has a popular modding community to this day, which may be why there are hints that the game is getting a sequel.

Vampire: The Masquerade started out as a tabletop role-playing game in a similar vein to Dungeons & Dragons. Unlike D&D: Vampire: The Masquerade used a contemporary setting where the players each portrayed a member of a vampire clan, all of which had their own strengths & weaknesses. The vampires were able to escape from detection from mortals by upholding a law called the "Masquerade", which involves keeping the secret of the existence of vampires at all costs, which often includes assassination, bribery, and mind-control. The game was part of a larger setting, referred to as the World of Darkness, which included other supernatural creatures, such as werewolves.

The publisher of Vampire: The Masquerade is a company called White Wolf, which was purchased by Paradox Interactive in 2015.

Paradox has created a dating website called Tender, which has strange personality questions that hint at vampire-related material. You might need to disable any adblocker or VPN that you are using in order for Tender to work.

There is a clue hidden within the data of the Tender page that hints towards a Vampire: The Masquerade connection. If you use the "Inspect" command on the Tender page, you will find a description saying "Whether you’re looking for meaningful friendships, true love or simply a late night bite with a kindred spirit, Tender is here to help." In Vampire: The Masquerade, vampires refer to each other as the Kindred, with mortals being referred to as the Kine.

It's possible that we may be seeing a brand new Vampire: The Masquerade video game, a sequel to Bloodlines, or maybe even an HD remaster of Bloodlines, as we are approaching the fifteen year anniversary of the game's release.

Vampire: The Masquerade has incredibly deep lore and a setting that is just begging for more video game adaptations. Bloodlines proved that amazing things could be done using the World of Darkness setting, which also includes creatures such as ghosts, werewolves, and zombies, all of which were used in the game, and there is certainly a lot more than can be done with the license.

There was meant to be a World of Darkness MMO at one point in time, but it was canceled back in 2014. The fans of Vampire the Masquerade have been craving more Kindred action in the fifteen years since the release of Bloodlines and they might soon be able to sate their thirst on delicious video game vitae once more.
