Skyrim Modders Resurrect a Vampire: The Masquerade Classic: Know Here
The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim has attracted a wide variety of mods produced by imaginative and talented gamers since its 2011 release. One of those mods—a work-in-progress remake of Vampire: The Masquerade – Redemption—evolved into a completely new game.
The mod, Vampire: The Masquerade – Redemption Reawakened, has recently celebrated its first full year of development. During that time, the developers finished many environments and levels from the 2000 video game, including the Society of Leopold, Dev/apartment, Null’s Patron Hill, Judith Bridge, and more. A recent Dev Report also showed off the gameplay, which has been changed to accommodate firearms but still, unsurprisingly, resembles the slow, occasionally clunky combat in Bethesda’s video game.
While the Dawnguard expansion for Skyrim appeared to add some fundamental gameplay elements, including feeding, they have all been changed to more closely mimic the World of Darkness. The Dev Report provides a sneak peek at how the talent tree in Skyrim has been modified to fit the disciplines found in the Vampire: The Masquerade universe. It also demonstrates how the group was able to work while in a bestial, uncontrollable state brought on by extremes in stress or hunger.

The first video game with a setting in the World of Darkness was Vampire: The Masquerade – Redemption. The game, created by the now-defunct Nihilistic Software, centred on the crusader Christof Romuald, who entered the World of Darkness after suffering severe battlefield injuries. Christof, who merely wants to be reunited with his beloved Anezka, is forced to fumble through the schemes of strong kindred and eventually finds himself caught up in a race to stop an ancient vampire named Vukodlak from coming back and poisoning the earth.
A Blast From The Past
When the game was first released in 2000, critics and players gave it overwhelmingly favourable reviews for its stunning graphics and level design. The game’s story and dialogue received mixed reviews, with some complimenting them and others condemning them for being drawn out and bordering on the ridiculous. Because of the game’s popularity, a direct sequel, Vampire: The Masquerade – Bloodlines, is now underdeveloped.
Despite being over ten years old, Skyrim still has a devoted following, and mods are constantly being created and distributed. The Elder Scrolls VI is still under development; however, news has been scarce since the project’s debut in 2018.
All of the major consoles now offer The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim. On Steam, you may get Vampire: The Masquerade – Redemption.
