The Blood Calls to the Tremere in Bloodlines 2
Hardsuit Labs has introduced the next clan for Vampire: The Masquerade – Bloodlines 2. Known for their powerful manipulation of blood, the Tremere are members of an old clan who have found immortality at the cost of needing blood to fuel their potent magics. The Tremere’s powers are divided between Thaumaturgy and Auspex.
The abilities for Thaumaturgy include Skewer, an ability that launches spikes made of the user’s blood; Purge, an ability that causes the target to suffer damage by vomiting blood; and Blood Boil, a follow-up to Purge that makes the blood of the target sear, exploding out of the target. By comparison, the Auspex skills focus on increasing the Tremere’s awareness. Aura Sense grants the user spot and track targets through crowds and walls as well as identify weak points. Psychic Projection allows the user to detach their soul from their body temporarily in order to survey the surrounding area without alerting others.
Set in modern Seattle, Bloodlines 2 puts players in the role of a newly-born Thinblood vampire who must navigate the political climate of the vampire underworld while attempting to align themselves with one of the prestigious clans. The game will arrive in the first quarter of 2020 for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC.
