Bloodlines 2 Debuts the Toreador
Paradox Interactive has released the next video in its series introducing the clans of Vampire: The Masquerade – Bloodlines 2. This newest entry focuses on the Toreador, a high-class clan of vampires who seek to embody every aspect of art, beauty, and status. Comprised of trend-setters and posers alike, many of the other vampires look up to the Toreador, something they are very well aware of, making them masters of influence.
The blood abilities of the Toreador are split between Presence and Celerity. The two Presence abilities, Awe and Entrance, offer ways to manipulate an adoring audience for the short term either by stunning them into momentary forgetfulness or stringing them along in a throng, distracting enemies along the way. The Celerity abilities, Unseen Storm and Accelerate, allow for both blinding speed and the opportunity to slow everyone else down to gain an advantage.
Bloodlines 2 takes players to a near-future Seattle where different vampire clans hold an uneasy alliance in the underworld of the city. The game will arrive on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC sometime in the first quarter of 2020.
