No doubt, because behind Nighthawks there is always a collaboration between the author / designer Richard Cobbett (Sunless Sea, Sunless Skies) and the artist Ben Chandler (Shardlight, Technobabylon). While Paradox does not give too much news of its Masquerade, the more modest Nighthawks now presents itself for a release in early 2021 on PC. In this title, the player embodies a protagonist who died six months earlier but returned as a vampire ready to conquer the world of the night.
Lack of luck, the whole community of creatures of the night has just been exposed to the light of day. And if human society seems to tolerate their existence, their attraction to blood is already much less appreciated. Nighthawks therefore stages the complications of a nocturnal and urban cohabitation between vampires and humans, against the backdrop of the management of a nightclub that must be reconverted into a personal empire by using seduction, intimidation or even supernatural gifts. specific to vampires. The adventure will not be lonely since it will be necessary to befriend and recruit other characters to share their stories and exploit their skills, knowing that strategic battles will be played against vampire colleagues as well as humans.
No French translation planned for this title published by the modest studio of Dave Gilbert, but the adventure will however be entirely dubbed in English. Note finally, if this little touch of jazz arouses your curiosity, that the music of the game will be signed Thomas Regin, already a composer on the Blackwell, Nancy Drew and Unavowed franchises.
