Vampire: The Masquerade - Bloodlines is an RPG for Windows developed by Troika Games and released on November 16, 2004. Like Activision's Vampire: The Masquerade - Redemption, Bloodlines is set in White Wolf, Inc's Vampire: The Masquerade universe, but it is not a sequel to the aforementioned game. Bloodlines allows the player to choose one of several different vampire clans and progress through the game according to the different strengths and weaknesses of the player's character, as in its paper and pencil role playing origins. Bloodlines is notable for being the first game along with Half-Life 2 to use Valve Software's Source engine, which allows the game to be played from either the first or third-person perspective. It is also Troika Games' third title and the last to be made before Troika closed down in February 2005.
