Vampire race?

Hey,

i wanted to ask if there will be a vampire race or a way to be become a vampire in general? I dont know much about the lore of the game yet, so im not sure if thats even possible, but personally i would love to see one :)

    No vampire race announced or hinted at. And lore-wise I would say it's very unlikely we'll see it.

    Well... we do have Necromancy and life-drains.
    Some form of Vampire NPC is possible.

    You could play Demonic Shaman and have Vampire Summons. Blood magic too :)

    Not a fan of vampires. They tend to suck in combat.

    Yeah they usually involve really high stakes game play. Get's the blood pumping but really bites if you mess up... Pretty draining really. When it comes to character races you really gotta let the right one in.
    Where in the world IS Carmen Sandiego. Anyone seen her recently? Asking for a friend.

    okay, thanks everyone for the responses! :)

    thats sad to hear, but i totally understand if it doesnt make any sense lore-wise.

    So there is no vampire race and there is no way (or talk) of becoming a vampire or werewolf like in ESO.
    there is however room in the lore for vampires, we do have undead and people trying to use "the essence" (basically magic) to gain immortality. One way you could do it (story telling wise) is have it where a person became corrupt and now has to feed off of others "Life Essence" through drinking blood to sustain their immortality

    Sounds a lot like Corruption in this game.

    You can go that route and claim to be a vampire for as long as you can stand it. Until the debuffs and XP debt and lost resources and gear get to be too much.

    Doesn't have to be vampires, but it could be fun to have mechanisms that buffs / debuffs a character's stats/abilities during day / night or when under the influence of other environmental factors ...... if it doesn't hurt the game balance too much.

    There is a dark and twisted path players can choose. Sounds like it's not connected to increasing Corruption Score.
