It is the Middle Ages in Europe, and people live in constant fear of demons and God's punishment. Christof is a warrior who fights the creatures of darkness. After being badly injured in a battle, he is nursed back to health by the nun Anezka in a Prague convent. Love strikes Christof when he least expects it. He realizes that it is impossible for him and Anezka to be together, but he swears to protect her and the town of Prague from demons. What he does not know is that Prague has become a battlefield for the struggle between different vampire clans. The Brujah clan sees a duty in protecting their wisdom and the unsuspecting mortals from the more vicious clans. They turn Christof into a vampire, hoping to use his skills and his passion for their cause. Christof has lost his soul, his faith, everything he had ever had, becoming one of those he had always fought and hated. But his love to Anezka has not died. And so Christof agrees to help the Brujah, getting involved in a complex net of intrigues and struggle between vampire clans, a struggle that will eventually take him to modern times, to London and New York, where his fate will finally be decided.
Vampire: The Masquerade - Redemption is based on White Wolf's pen-and-paper RPG. Gaining experience points, you develop Christof and other characters by increasing their statistics (such as Strength, Intelligence, Manipulation etc.) or learn and improve various disciplines, the magic spells of the game. Disciplines require blood, which can be restored with items or by feeding on enemies. Combat is done in real time. You have a party ("coterie") that is controlled by AI, but you can switch between different characters at any time. Following the ethical code of the RPG, there is a Humanity bar for Christof, which can be reduces if you kill innocents or take evil decisions in the game. The game has several different endings that depend on your Humanity level. There is also a multiplayer option.
- Live as the Undead: As Christof, a vampire of the Brujah Clan, you must fight and feed on the blood of mortals, while hiding your vampiric powers and controlling the urges of the beast within you. Along the way, you are joined by other vampires who will fight by your side as you solve a series of quests surrounding a deep story.
- Powerful 3-D Engine: Your World of Darkness is created by the Nod Engine, developed by Nihilistic. Dramatic lighting, fog effects and gorgeous textures bring the medieval cities of Prague and Vienna to life, and twist the modern landscape of London and New York into a gothic nightmare.
- Innovative Multiplayer Design: Vampire: The Masquerade-Redemption will change the way computer RPGs are played online with its Storyteller mode, which allows one player to create and run an adventure of their own. Multiplayer features include co-op play, and the option to play as the hunter or the hunted.
- Immortal RPG Appeal: Based on the popular tabletop role-playing game, the PC version of Vampire: The Masquerade offers fans of the series a true translation of their beloved story. Even gamers and RPG fans unfamiliar with the series will enjoy the incredible 3-D graphics, deep storyline and engrossing gameplay.
