Paradox Interactive, earlier today dropped a new trailer for the first-full blood Vampire clan, Vampire: The Masquerade – Bloodlines 2: Brujah!
According to Paradox, the Brujah are a faction of rebel vampires, known for their unbridled strength and brute force power, thanks to their strong bloodline. Known as The Rabble to other Vampires, the Brujah exist on the fringes of society, even amongst Vampires. Leftovers from the failed Anarch movements. The unparalleled strength of the Brujah has led these warriors into special battles, known as a Bash, best described as an underground fight club for the wicked.
The Brujah Bloodline brings with it, two ancient disciplines that players can tap into. Potence and Celerity. The full breakdown of the two distinct abilities can be viewed down below, courtesy of the official press release for the upcoming game:
Fist of Caine – Deliver a devastating punch that turns walls into rubble and throws enemies through the air. Upgrades to Fist of Cain enhance the devastating effects even further.
Earthshock – Smash the ground with titanic force, creating a shockwave around the player that damages and knocks down anyone who dares to stray too close. Upgrading Earthshock causes the Brujah’s onslaught to send out fissures, damaging anyone caught in the cataclysm.
Unseen Storm – Dash in any direction with such speed that you momentarily disappear from view, allowing you to land attacks, dodge around enemies, or get away before the dust has settled. Upgrades further enhance the effects of Unseen Storm.
Accelerate – Move so fast that everything else in the world appears to slow down to a standstill. Assailants seem frozen in their attacks, cars crawl forward, bullets zip by lazily, and the vampire can perform stunts that, with an 80’s synth track in the background, would make for an awesome movie scene. Upgrades further enhance the effects of Accelerate.
Players who choose to follow the path of the Brujah can still rely on their Thinblood origins, incorporating their individual powers with the raw strength of the rebellious spirits that compose the Brujah clan.
Vampire: The Masquerade – Bloodlines 2 is set for release sometime in 2020, the title is a direct sequel to the 2004 game, Vampire: The Masquerade. The original action role-playing game took place in Publisher, White Wolf’s World of Darkness, gothic-punk setting and world.
