We didn’t get to see much of CCP’s World of Darkness vampire MMO before it was officially cancelled earlier this month. Now that early testers are no longer worried about breaking embargo, we’re still not seeing much. Damn these are some dark screenshots.
Appearing on a Russian World of Darkness site and posted to Reddit by Ricesnot, these images show beautiful people doing horrible things in the dark, which is pretty much what the World of Darkness setting was all about.
Also on the Russian site is a PDF file of the guide given to participants in the March 2014 beta test, which indicates just how surprising the cancellation must have been for those working on the game. The file only shows a handful of vampire clans available for character creation — Brujah, Toreador, Tremere and Ventrue. Without Malkavians, the game was obviously doomed to fail.
