Vampire: The Masquerade – Bloodlines 2 has unveiled its first full-blood clan: the Brujah.
After last week’s Thinbloods reveal, Paradox has returned to give us the first look at the Brujahs, the first one of fix clans you’ll be able to join in Vampire: The Masquerade – Bloodlines 2.
The Brujah brings together members of failed Anarch movements, and drifters in the city looking for some anonymity. They’re the toughest in the game’s world, emphasising physical superiority over other clans.
The Brujahs hang out in fight clubs, called bash, which act as both a celebration of their strength and a way to find capable fighters through bash brawls.
Bloodlines 2 allows players to join the Brujah, and they’ll get to keep their Thinblooded powers. For joining, you’ll unlock two new disciplines: Potence, and Celerity. Read on below for details:
Bloodlines 2 – Brujah clan disciplines
Potence imbues the undead bodies of Brujahs with raw Kindred strength.
- Fist of Caine – Potence’s first active power, allows the Brujah to deliver a devastating punch that turns walls into rubble and throws enemies through the air, tearing of limbs and causing collateral damage.
- Earthshock – the second active power, smashes the ground with titanic force. The impact causes a shockwave around the player, damaging and knocking down anyone who dared to stray too close. After further upgrades, the ground cracks under the Brujah’s onslaught, sending fissures outwards and damaging anyone caught in this cataclysm.
Celerity pushes the speed of a Brujah’s body beyond all limits, allowing for fast strikes, and quick dodges.
- Unseen Storm – the first active, allows the vampire to dash in a direction of their choice at such a speed as to momentarily disappear from view, allowing them to land attacks, dodge around enemies, or get away before the dust has time to settle. Characters struck along the way of the dash get knocked down.
- Accelerate – the second active, opens up speeds so fast that everything else in the world appears to slow down to a virtual standstill. Assailants seem frozen in their attacks, cars crawl forward, bullets zip by lazily, and the vampire can get up to the kinds of stunts that, with a popular 80’s synth track in the background, would make an awesome movie scene. The upgrade slots allow the vampire to further improve their acceleration.
Vampire: The Masquerade – Bloodlines 2 is coming to PC, and consoles next year.
