The computer version of White Wolf's popular paper-and-pencil RPG series drew only slightly less crowds at E3 than Activision's biggest gun. Quake III. Then again, Quake III doesn't let you drag villagers into a dark alley and drink their blood. Developed by programmers who have worked on hits such as Dark Forces II: Jedi Knight, Descent, and StarCraft, Vampire centers around Christof Romauld, a knight batding the bloodsucking Kindred. The game's action/RPG quest spans medieval Prague and Vienna to modern-day London and New York, all re-created via the game's impressive 3D engine. The mouse-only interlace should keep things simple, and characters from other White Wolf games will make guest appearances. In fact, Nihilistic is being careful to preserve the paper-and-pencil version's appeal and flexibility; the in-development multiplayer component should reflect this, too. If the preview version is any indication, fens of the traditional game and folks sick of waiting for Legacy of Kain's sequel will want to sink their teeth into Vampire. Heh.
