Vampire: The Masquerade 5th Edition is a return to the vision of the classic 1991 Vampire tabletop role-playing game, which spawned a supernatural transmedia universe that’s influenced two and a half decades of film, television shows, novels and video games.
V5 features a new set of modern rules and continues the dark and sexy tale started with the original 1991 Vampire: The Masquerade. 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 own hunger for power — and thirst for blood. The terror of the Second Inquisition, the conspiracies behind the Gehenna War and the rekindling of the War of Ages: these are the building blocks of the modern V5 chronicle. The enthralling lore of the Kindred and Vampire metaplot advances to present day, in a bold reinvention built for existing fans and newcomers alike.
Powered by the innovative Hunger cycle, V5 includes rules for creating system-supported character coteries, Loresheets to directly involve players with their favorite parts of the setting, and Memoriam, a new way to bring characters’ detailed backgrounds into play and expand on them in-session.
V5 will feature three main full-color hardback books with gorgeous art — the V5 corebook and Anarch and Camarilla sourcebooks — 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. A Collector’s Edition of the corebook will be available as well.
Pre-orders for Vampire: The Masquerade 5th Edition corebooks begin shipping and will be available at brick-and-mortar shops this August. Early printed copies will first be available for purchase at GenCon 2018 in Indianapolis from August 2-5, 2018. The Anarch and Camarilla sourcebooks are set to release Fall 2018. V5 is published by White Wolf and distributed worldwide in English by Modiphius Entertainment.
V5 has been developed, designed and written by Kenneth Hite, Matthew Dawkins, Mary Lee, Juhanna Petterson, Karim Muammar, and Martin Ericsson, with guidance and inspiration from Vampire‘s original creator Mark Rein-Hagen.
