The Brujah - Clan Of Anarchists & Philosophers Will Be Playable In Vampire: The Masquerade - Bloodlines 2

In Vampire: The Masquerade - Bloodlines 2, the player takes on the role of a fledgling vampire in Seattle, who is caught up in the war between the various factions vying for control of the city. The player will choose which clan they will be part of, all of which have their own specific powers and weaknesses. Paradox Interactive has revealed that the second playable clan will be the Brujah - the clan known by names such as the Philosopher-Kings and the Rebels, both of which hint at the proud history of the Brujah and the form they have taken in the modern nights.

The player will initially start Vampire: The Masquerade - Bloodlines 2 as a thin-blooded vampire, who bears a highly diluted version of the curse of vampirism. At some point in the game, the player will be able to choose their clan (most likely through Diablerie - the act of consuming another vampire's power and soul), allowing them to gain the strengths and weaknesses of their new bloodline.

The Brujah are known for their powerful emotions, which persist even after centuries of unlife. In the past, the Brujah ruled many great cities (such as Carthage) and they were known for being just rulers and having a strong connection with mortals. The values of clan Brujah were twisted and warped over time and in modern nights, most Brujah have taken on the role of rabble-rousers and punks, with the strong emotions of the clan being turned towards rage and violence.

If the player takes on the blood of clan Brujah, then they will gain access to two new disciplines - Celerity and Potence. Celerity increases the speed of the user, which manifests in two powers - Unseen Storm (the ability to dash in order to approach or dodge an enemy) and Accelerate (the ability to slow down time). Potence increases the physical strength of the user, which manifests in two powers - Fist of Caine (the player can throw a punch that breaks both flesh and stone) and Earthshock (which is a hit to the ground so hard that it damages foes in the area).

The third discipline used by the Brujah in the Vampire: The Masquerade tabletop game seems to be missing. Brujah are also supposed to possess the discipline of Presence, which can attract or dissuade others from approaching the user of the power. The fact that the Brujah in Vampire: The Masquerade - Bloodlines 2 lack Potence suggests that not all of the disciplines will make their way into the game. There is also no mention of the Brujah's clan Bane, where it's harder for them to resist giving in to a frenzy, though this is more likely to appear in some form within the game.

Vampire: The Masquerade - Bloodlines 2 will be available for PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One in Q1, 2020.
