The iconic pen-and-paper tabletop RPG, Vampire: The Masquerade, enters into a new era as White Wolf Entertainment launches Vampire: The Masquerade Fifth Edition (V5) -- the latest chronicle of their iconic vampire tabletop roleplaying series.
V5 is a return to the vision of the 1991 Vampire: The Masquerade, the classic that changed roleplaying games forever, and spawned a supernatural transmedia universe that’s influenced two-and-a-half decades of film, television shows, novels and video games. Rooted in the exploration of evil and morality, the Vampire series challenges players to confront — or channel — their inner monster and exploit the weaknesses of society to satiate their desire for power — and thirst for blood. V5 features streamlined and modern rules set, beautiful full-color art and photography, and a rich story experience.
“With the launch of V5, today marks an incredible milestone in the history of Vampire: The Masquerade,” said White Wolf CEO Tobias Sjögren. “The fifth edition of Vampire is the culmination of 30 years of creative efforts by White Wolf, its partners, and of course, the passionate global community of players and fans. It’s an experience we expect longtime fans will find engaging, while similarly bringing newcomers into the World of Darkness.”
V5 consists of three main full color hardback books — the V5 corebook, the Anarch and Camarilla sourcebooks (the latter two available November 2018) — as well as an official V5 dice set, V5 storyteller screen and V5 notebook. All three books will also be available in a high quality slipcase along with a special edition of the corebook. For those wanting to mark the occasion of this new edition, a collector's edition of the corebook as well as a limited-print luxury leatherbound Methuselah Bundle will also be available.
The physical V5 corebook is now available for purchase online from White Wolf distribution partner Modiphius Entertainment and in brick-and-mortar shops this month. Each physical corebook includes a complimentary digital copy.
Also, sarting this winter, translated editions of V5 will become available in French, German, Italian, Korean, Portuguese, Russian, and Spanish, with more languages to be announced.
