Today, through a Paradox Interactive press release, we learn about Bloodlines 2's first Vampire clan. For the more experienced players, even in the table game, there will be no special news, but for newcomers it is time to start playing the game. So here are the Brujahs.
Paradox Interactive has today unveiled the first full-blood Vampire clan of Vampire: The Masquerade - Bloodlines 2: the Brujahs! The Brujahs are rebels and bullies who exalt brute force and celebrate the power of their bloodline.
Known as "Rabble" by the other Vampires, the Brujahs have never been a substantial part of the Seattle Kindred community. Many Brujahs in the city are scraps of Anarch's failed movements and claim not to be affiliated with the Seattle political factions. The members of the Brujah clan gather in a "Bash", better described as a fight club for the undead, where they affirm their physical superiority over the other clans.
The powers of the Brujahs are overwhelming as well as their beliefs. Players who join the Rabble can unlock two ancient disciplines that improve their physical abilities: Potence e Celerity. Potence is the distinctive Brujah discipline and imbues their undead bodies with the strength of Kindred - no one can underestimate the strength of the Brujahs. As Potence increases strength, Celerity increases the speed of the Brujahs, allowing them to hit faster, dodge faster and escape more agile than any deadly creature.
Find out more about the disciplines and powers of the Brujahs, below:
- Fist of Caine - A devastating punch that turns walls into rubble and throws enemies into the air. Fist of Cain upgrades further increase the devastating effects.
- Earthshock - Destroys the ground by a titanic force, creating a shockwave around the player that damages and kills anyone who dares to go too far. The Earthshock upgrade further unleashes the Brujah's assault, damaging anyone who has been affected by the cataclysm.
- Unseen Storm - Allows you to move in any direction at high speed, disappearing momentarily from view, allowing you to attack, dodge enemies or move away before the dust has stabilized. Upgrades further enhance the effects of Unseen Storm.
- Accelerate - Allows you to move so fast that the surrounding world is slowed down. The attackers seem frozen in their attacks, the cars crawl forward, the bullets freeze and the vampire can perform acrobatics that, with an old 80 song in the background, could create a fantastic movie scene. Upgrades further enhance the effects of Accelerate. Also, if you use Potence or Celerity in front of a mortal, you will violate the rules of the Masquerade.
Players who join the Brujah clan can use these disciplines in addition to the individual powers of their past as Thinblood.
