New Vampire: The Masquerade Bloodlines 2 details have been revealed, though these details only speak about a secondary clan of vampires, second-class ones known as the Thinbloods. Paradox Interactive, the game’s publisher, gave us plenty of information about it, including that the Bloodlines 2 protagonist starts as one.
The Bloodlines 2 vampires and those in the original game are rather different from some of the vampires seen in other media that includes them. The majority of vampires are divided into five great clans, each one with different abilities and powers. Thinbloods are a weaker variant of vampire that must struggle to survive in vampire society.
According to the Vampire: The Masquerade Bloodlines 2 details that we’ve gotten, players will start out as a Thinblood but be able to join one of the five different major vampire factions. Thinbloods will also start out as part of one of three different Vampire: the Masquerade Bloodlines 2 classes.
These classes, called Chiropteran, Mentalist, and Nebulation, grant unique combat abilities and traversal methods throughout the game, including telekinesis, summoning swarms of bats, or using magical mist to move around stealthily. With these abilities you can do things like yank the weapons of enemies out of their hands, fly for a short time, or create a cloud of mist to surround and choke enemies.
The other Vampire: The Masquerade Bloodlines 2 vampire clans will be getting more information at a later date. So far Paradox hasn’t given us a Bloodlines 2 release date, only saying that the game is slated to come out in the first quarter of 2020. Since it’s only April of 2019 now, that’s still a very long way off.
The game will be coming out on the Xbox One, Playstation 4, and PC as well, so there will be plenty of ways for you to experience its story when it comes out. Until then, be on the lookout for more Vampire: The Masquerade Bloodlines 2 details in the future.
