Vampire: The Masquerade – Shadows of New York Official Artbook
After we created the beautiful Coteries of New York artbook with tons of art, including some work-in-progress assets and comments from members of our art team throughout 72 pages, we got great feedback from our community and so we made a decision to step up and make even better album when releasing the standalone expansion for Coteries.

Hence, we’re proud to present the official Shadows of New York artbook. We’re happy to offer you 72 pages full of characters, locations and CGs straight from Vampire: The Masquerade – Shadows of New York – a standalone expansion to Coteries of New York!

Next to high quality pieces of art that are used in the game, the artbook contains a lot of concept art from different stages of development (many of these don’t appear in-game), accompanied by personal comments by our artists and designers, who created many new characters (and revitalized some old ones), locations and special scenes specifically for Shadows of New York.

Additionally, we have prepared a surprise for the owners of the Shadows of New York artbook! When purchasing the PDF, you will find a link to download exclusive wallpapers for all platforms and screens. These are extras, on top of the high quality wallpapers picked by our team which all players can download here. [https://drawdistance.dev/vampire-the-masquerade-shadows-of-new-york-wallpapers/]

“I was very happy when I learned that we were planning to make an expansion to our Vampire game - especially because the titular shadows were set to appear, and the locations would be enhanced with a bit of an otherworldly effect. I took a lot of inspiration from reading about the history of the Lasombra clan and their progenitor. It was an interesting task to put some darker, more disturbing elements in the backgrounds. I attempted to achieve this by changing the color palette of certain locations, adding different filters, and rough brush strokes. Another key element was finding appropriate spots to add the shadowy figures...”
Filip Odzierejko (lead background artist)

About Vampire: The Masquerade – Shadows of New York
Vampire: The Masquerade – Shadows of New York is a visual novel set in the rich universe of Vampire: The Masquerade. It acts as a stand-alone expansion and a companion piece to our previous title, Coteries of New York. While Coteries was a general introduction to the world depicted in the 5th Edition of the hit tabletop role-playing game, Shadows presents a more personal and unique tale from the perspective of our Clan Lasombra protagonist, Julia.


About Vampire: The Masquerade - Shadows of New York

Vampire: The Masquerade – Shadows of New York is a visual novel set in the rich universe of Vampire: The Masquerade. It acts as a stand-alone expansion and a companion piece to our previous title, Coteries of New York. While Coteries was a general introduction to the world depicted in the 5th Edition of the hit tabletop role-playing game, Shadows presents a more personal and unique tale.

When New York’s Anarch leader meets a gruesome end, out of all the bloodsuckers in the metropolis, you’re the one picked to investigate. Make no mistake: this is obviously a trap, yet another move in the horrible game of Jyhad, the eternal struggle for power between warring vampire generations. But you’re Lasombra, and if there’s one thing you know, it’s this: if the Ventrue Prince and her followers underestimate you, they’re going to deeply regret it. Beside the main storyline, players are able to take part in additional missions that allow them to learn a lot about the lore. All that makes Vampire: The Masquerade – Shadows of New York a perfect title for both Vampire: The Masquerade veterans, as well as fans of mature narrative-driven games in general.

  • A visual novel tackling themes of personal and political horror, suitable for both Vampire: The Masquerade veterans, and fans of narrative-driven games who are newcomers to the setting.
  • A stand-alone expansion to Coteries of New York. See the familiar metropolis through entirely different eyes. Expect new characters, new locations and a fresh original soundtrack.
  • Play as a member of the Lasombra clan. Formerly vicious foes of the Camarilla, the Magisters decided to search for safety in the ranks of their former enemies. Master the shadows and communicate with the inhabitants of the Other Side, but beware – Oblivion is always lurking out there, ready to devour you whole.
  • Explore the streets of the Big Apple. While you search for ways to satiate your bloodthirst, catch glimpses of various fascinating vignettes and forge connections with the eccentric inhabitants of the city. One playthrough won’t be enough to see it all.
  • Shape your mind, shape your fate. You used to avoid defining yourself and tried to stay neutral, but given your situation, you can no longer afford to do so. The choices you make will alter the way you think, and your thinking will alter the paths you take.
