This official addon pack from Monolith looks set to reinstate Blood's original gothic atmosphere and place it inside the Lithtech engine. It contains 6 MASSIVE single player levels and several new multiplayer arenas for you to Bloodbath in, and several mods of Bloodbath to play while you're at it.
Gremlin - A small scavenger creature that inhabits the Ancient One's realm. They are devious and annoying creatures that attack in groups, when they attack. They are relatively weak, and for some reason enjoy mocking creatures much larger than them. They do this by throwing rocks, making unsitely gestures, and sometimes even stealing precious items.
Robed Cultists - The original and still the best! Tougher than the average Cultist, and wielding a powerful shotgun, these gibberish yelling maniacs plagued Caleb throughout Blood 1, and are back for more! The shotgun they carry can be picked up and used by yourself once they have been, uh, dispensed with.
The Nightmare - No information available. :)
News Multiplayer Models - We'll be getting Male Cultists, Soul Drudges, Prophets and Female Cultists to Bloodbath in. So far there are no screenshots of them.
Shade said when interviewed that "We didn't want the add-on to be as serious as the original game, so the storyline for the add-on is there more for setup and humor's sake than anything else. The add-on picks up where the first game left off, with the Chosen stranded in the Ancient One's realm, trying to make their way back to Earth. They set up camp one night and begin to tell scary stories about their past around the campfire. This attracts the attention of the Nightmare, a creature that inhabits the Ancient One's realm. The Chosen are then subjected to their greatest nightmares one-by-one before Caleb finally faces off with the creature itself."
Not only that, but the Blood1 feel looks to be reinstated, with the hooded enemies and victorian atmosphere of the original game looking perfect translatory material for the incredible Lithtech engine.
Combat Shotgun - A semi-auto shotgun with a blistering firing rate, this weapon is more accurate and has longer range than the double-barrel, but does less damage. It is also increasingly hard to aim the faster you fire it.
This is a list of my personal hopes and ideas for the addon and things it could include. NONE of this has been approved by Monolith and nothing will appear in the pack unless specified elsewhere, this is just a list of things I like the sound of.
Shooting weapons out of peoples' hands - Something that I felt was missing from Blood2 was the ability to knock your opponents weapons out of their hands, effectively disabling them. You could use it in multiplayer for great effect by sniping the weapons out of the hands of your friends... Maybe this would render them useless or it would switch the player back to the knife, and make them re-select their chosen weapon in order to continue firing at you.
Swap weapons in Bloodbath - Maybe when someone died, they'd drop the weapon they were using, so that if you had that weapon, you could pick up some more ammo, or if you didn't have it, you could drop a weapon and pick that up instead. It might be quite a nice bonus to someone who really wanted to use a weapon in BB, but didn't have enough slots to carry it in.
Picking up bodies - Now this is just sick. Using bodies as inventory items, and piling them up so you can climb and reach a higher platform. Could work wonders in Bloodbath and in single player ;-)
More things should be flamable - When I use a Napalm Launcher on a bed, it should set it on fire and burn anybody standing on it. Or perhaps ignite something nearby with sparks. It could add a whole new dimension to single player. Ever seen that "Barrel Run" style level in Doom2 where you have to run through a room full of exploding barrels?
