Vampire The Masquerade Bloodlines 2 Ventrue Clan Reveal

Vampire: The Masquerade Bloodlines 2 still has a long time to precede it formally introduces following year. While we might not understand the precise day followers of the initial game will certainly have the ability to obtain their hands on it, that has actually not quit the designers from launching all kinds of remarkable details concerning the title. That claimed, the people at Paradox Interactive have actually been kind sufficient to divulge some information relating to the clans that will certainly be included in Vampire: The Masquerade Bloodlines 2, the current of which takes place to be the power-holding Ventrue Clan.

Over the last few weeks, publisher Paradox Interactive unveiled three other playable vampire clans, including (Videos) the Brujah, Tremere, and Toreador. The goal is to set the groundwork for four distinct styles of play, and the Ventrue have their own story to tell. Known throughout the Vampire mythos as kings and kingmakers, the Ventrue clan has a unique slate of powers as well as a distinct curse.

About the Ventrue, Paradox tells us: “The blood of rulers flows through the Ventrue’s veins. While that once meant embracing high-priests and aristocrats, they now recruit from investment bankers and corporate executives. The “Clan of Kings” see themselves as the architects of vampire society who hold lineage and loyalty above all. Unusually for the clan, the Ventrue of Seattle were drawn to the dream of building their own power structure without oversight from elder generations. Now that the Camarilla has gained control, many Ventrue have realigned to join these new rulers, or have doubled down on their autonomy. Enterprising Ventrue have entrenched themselves in the business of the 21st century, paving the way for a prosperous future and making enemies of anyone who prefers the old ways.”

Just like any other clan, the Ventrue have their own set of specific skills: 

Dominate

  • Mesmerize – Allows the Ventrue to place one NPC in a brief hypnotic trance. The person so affected is oblivious to the world around them, ignoring sound, touch and even pain.

  • Command – Significantly extends the Ventrue’s control over the Mesmerized NPC. They can now be ordered to move, remove obstacles, or even attack others.

Using Dominate powers is not a Masquerade violation.

Fortitude

  • Absorb – Allows the vampire to take a brief defensive stance in which they may deflect all attacks they can see, healing their wounds for every would-be strike.

  • Personal Armor – Hardens the vampire’s skin into a stone-like barrier.

Allowing a mortal to witness your Fortitude under attack is a Masquerade Violation.

With the latest reveal, it’s easy to be excited for the next step in the Bloodlines franchise! Unfortunately, we still don’t have a release date at this time, though the team promises much more to reveal between now and E3 2019.

Vampire: The Masquerade Bloodlines 2 is readied to come to some factor in 2020 for PC, PlayStation 4, and also Xbox one.
