Paradox and Hardsuit Labs have revealed the next clan set to feature in Vampire: The Masquerade - Bloodlines 2, the long-awaited follow-up to the cult classic. The Toreador (or Clan of the Rose) are a hedonistic bunch and among their number are artists and poets.
Both "Presence" and "Celebrity" disciplines were detailed as part of the reveal, which came alongside the following trailer.
- Awe: strike a pose that freezes all before you in adoring wonder. For a short time after, new admirers are oblivious to anything other than what they've just witnessed.
- Entrance: form a group of admirers around the vampire, following along and distracting nearby enemies.
Public use of Presence abilities does not constitute a Masquerade violation.
- 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.
Use of Celerity before mortals is a Masquerade violation.
Vampire: The Masquerade - Bloodlines 2 is heading to PC, PS4, and Xbox One in early 2020, and you can read more about it here.
