The MMO "will have a focus on player politics and social interaction," Ardulf's Lair reports (via Massively), collecting the titbits of information trickling out of the show. Only vampires will be playable, it's said, though the World of Darkness setting also houses mages, werewolves and other creatures in its dark version of our modern world. Read more »
