Vampires suck. But in a good way. Ever since Bram Stoker wrote Dracula there’s been a sort of romanticization surrounding these mysterious but dangerous creatures of the night. After all, one of their greatest abilities is to manipulate us mere mortals into doing their bidding. Among other crazy supernatural feats. So it shouldn’t come as a surprise that there’s a vampire themed MMO on the way in Dogma: Eternal Night. Which does look like quite an interesting take on the genre.
I love a good MMO, especially if I’m a fan of the subject matter. While vampires are far from my favorite supernatural entity it does rank relatively high on my list. And, after all, I did enjoy playing The Secret World. Which is why I decided to give Dogma: Eternal Night a look. And I’m happy to say that there’s enough there to keep my interest. At least in the short run. At the very least these vampires don’t sparkle. That, and the fact that this game takes a more darker approach in the vein of Vampire: The Masquerade.
Aside from your usual MMO fare Dogma: Eternal Night promises a more social approach to the genre than most games of this type. Of course, there’s still plenty of combat and fear of dieing (permanently even) but it sounds like the main focus here is on dealing with your clan, other clans, and the mortal world on a more political and social footing. There are four organizations, called Sabbaths, that you can join that run the gamut from socialite to religious fanatic to even a nasty grunge faction. I’m certain anyone who loves vampires should find something to like here. Unless you’re a fan of the Twilight series at least.
