World of Darkness Details

World of Darkness News has a video interview with Chris McDonough, where the senior producer on World of Darkness discusses plans for CCP's upcoming supernatural MMOG. They summarize

  • Bloodlines the PC game is a big inspiration to the MMO, they are trying to capture the same atmosphere/using it as a point of reference.
  • He finds PnP RPG's natural to move into a MMO as it is about individual characters not a specific one (ie Spiderman).
  • A lot of focus on player to player interactions due to lack of GM unlike a table top session.
    Confirms single shard concept from EVE will be used due to shared technology. (Who called this 6 months ago? oh that's right, me. )
  • States there is still a AAA team working on the MMO from all aspects of the gaming industry.
    Wanted to focus on vampires only to give depth due to focusing on only one playable supernatural on launch.
  • Said on the surface the game will not seem to be about supernaturals but becomes evident when your character digs into the game world.

I always suspected this game would be too dependent on other players to define the experience (as is EVE). I don't think I'm alone in hoping it would be 'Bloodlines Online' and not 'EVE with fangs', I'm more prepared than ever for disappointment.

But, as long as it's a cool game world and interesting to be in, I'll give it a shot - unless I have to spend every other minute getting diablerized, with some early-generation Dbag talking smack all the while.
