Earlier this week (April 17th, 2017), the VEKN has published two more previews of cards contained in the upcoming VTES Anthology set. The cards shown are a previously published card (Enkil Cog) with new artwork, as well as two new crypt cards (Apolonia Czarnecki & Aisha az-Zahra). Along with the preview cards, card texts have been clarified with regards to the resolution of an action (for which Enkil Cog provides an example). You can look up the new previews as well as the previous ones on the VTES Anthology page on vekn.net.
Today (April 10th, 2017), the VEKN has published two more previews of cards contained in the upcoming VTES Anthology set. The cards shown are a previously published card (Field Training) with new artwork, as well as two new crypt cards (Weirich Waldburg & Andre the Manipulator). Along with the preview cards, a new wording regarding cards attached to a vampire has been announced as well. You can view the new previews as well as the previous ones on the VTES Anthology page on vekn.net
Today the VEKN has started (the albeit short) preview of the upcoming VTES Anthology set. The expansion consists mostly of reprints of existing cards, but has a few new cards as well (10 new crypt cards and 2 new library cards). The set will be released on May 11th, 2017 on the occasion of the World Of Darkness Berlin convention alongside with the VTES European Championship 2017.
With the expansion, two significant changes come along, mostly (I think) because WotC is no longer involved in VTES, and their intellectual property had to be respected. First of all, the backside of the cards will change, because the “Deckmaster” logo/text had to be dropped. This will typically require the players to play with sleeved decks during tournaments when using decks with different cardbacks.
Also the keywords tap/untap were dropped, and they have been replaced by the keywords lock/unlock, while the function remains the same.

On March 30th, 2017 the VEKN has published its latest newsletter (for March 2017). The newsletter covers a number of topics, ranging from news on the Anthology Set, two new Storylines tournaments coming up, and news on the upcoming VEKN expansion (based on the Bloodline clans). In summary, the Anthology sets new cards will be revealed on the VEKN website during the next weeks prior to the EC 2017 in Berlin. Also new cards (as published by the VEKN) are now tournament legal directly upon release (so no more 30 day waiting period). Mike Nudd has announced two new Storyline tournaments named Ascension of Caine and End of the Line, which both reference the Berlin (by Night) setting and the LARP event End of the Line (which is taking place during the World of Darkness Berlin convention). The upcoming VEKN expansion for the Bloodlines is well under way, but the round 2 of the playtesting has not (yet) started.
