Vampire: The Masquerade - Coteries of New York is a unique single-player blend of
atmospheric adventure and emotional narration full of choices, set in the rich, licensed
universe of Vampire: The Masquerade 5th Edition. The game presents the bitter conflict
between two vampiric factions - the Camarilla and the Anarchs – which plays out among
the night lights of New York City. As a newly-fledged vampire you have to learn what it
means to be one of the Kindred in an enormous, vibrant metropolis. You will meet other
vampires, thin-bloods, ghouls, regular mortals... and more.
You can choose a character representing one of several vampiric Clans, each of them with
unique powers, different ethical dilemmas, and dialogues. Your experiences will test
your morality and force you to take part in a struggle for power between rivaling factions.
You’ll feast on the living and ask yourself about the very nature of humanity while
resisting the lure of the Beast inside you. Your choices matter and are reflected during
the game as well as in distinctly different paths to the finale. Additionally,
character-oriented quests allow you to create your own coterie and shape the relations
with your companions.
The first glimpse of the gameplay will be revealed in early August. Stay tuned!
Once a Sect accepting all like-minded vampires, the Camarilla has tightened
its ranks in response to the threat of the Second Inquisition and the cracks
in its previously stable pillars. Now even more elitist than before, they see
themselves as the only viable option for upholding the Masquerade, but its
feudal organisation calcifies the divide between the powerful Elders and their
Childer, who are expected to accept their subservient place in the structure.
Less of a cohesive organisation, and more of a political
Movement, the Anarchs have existed as a counterpoint to the
Camarilla's strict order for several centuries. Their struggle in
modern nights is the same as ever – in order to secure the
freedom they seek, Anarchs face the risk inherent to being
simultaneously disorganised and maligned by a powerful,
seemingly monolithic Camarilla – only now, they also have the
Second Inquisition breathing down their necks.
Less of a cohesive organisation, and more of a political Movement, the Anarchs
have existed as a counterpoint to the Camarilla's strict order for several
centuries. In recent years, the rebellious fire of their conviction has
flared up, and they are now bolder than ever. It will not be an easy
fight - disorganised and maligned by a powerful, seemingly monolithic
Camarilla, the Anarchs now also have the Second Inquisition
breathing down their necks.

New York City
For most of the 20th Century, the Camarilla has had
limited influence in The City That Never Sleeps.
They were the underdog, having to work in constant
danger of being confronted by the more numerous forces
of the diabolical Sabbat. This changed in 1999,
when a coordinated effort dubbed The Battle of New York
won the sect a secure spot in NYC
Hugely important to the Camarilla, which was losing
nearly everywhere else on the East Coast, it was
more of a Phyrric victory than a straight-up triumph.
The Anarchs stayed on the fringes of that conflict,
and jumped at the occasion to reclaim parts of the
city that they were present in for almost as long as
it was standing. Traditionally boxed in on Staten Island,
they started spreading throughout all of the Five Boroughs,
though their progress was slow and unsteady
More than a decade later, a mix of political strife and
a violent Second Inquisition operation shakes the two
organizations to their core. What seemed like a stable
status quo began to show its cracks, and more radical
members of both sects began plotting to shake up the
stagnant city. The accumulating tension may soon erupt
into open confrontation, and New York City might again
be engulfed in a secret war of the undead bloodsuckers
who hope to rule it from behind the scenes...
