Game publisher Paradox Interactive and developer Hardsuit Labs recently revealed details about a new faction for upcoming video game Vampire: The Masquerade – Bloodlines 2.
The Masquerade – Bloodlines 2 introduces another group
latest group to be introduced is one of the five major factions in Seattle, The
Pioneers. All of these factions are looking for ways to get them all united
under a single banner and control them all.
out the details here:
While Seattle is a young city, the vampires of The
Pioneers were among the first to settle here and rule. Led by Lou Grand, the
longest-reigning Prince of the area, they have seen control slip away over the
years and are increasingly unhappy with the amount of outsiders that have come
in and carved out territory.
There’s a lot of wealth in ruling a city for more than a
century. The money of the Pioneers would earn a lot of influence almost
anywhere in the world. In the modern boomtown of Seattle, though, all it seems
to afford is a more comfortable slide into irrelevance.
While they have dreams of once more ruling the city, they
have since been forced to accept the rules of another. In exchange, they have
been allowed to “save face” by keeping control over some minor parts of the
The Insider’s Club
A collection of individuals from different clans, unified
by their idealistic and romantic notion of Seattle as the last frontier – The
Pioneers held Seattle for the biggest part of the city’s existence. Having lost
so much in the last twenty years, they have become quite skeptical of the
changing world, including any fledgling looking to join.
The vampires in Lou’s group include loggers, fishermen,
bootleggers, old money families, musicians and artists, and many other
long-time Puget Sound inhabitants – and they fight tooth and nail to preserve
whatever remains of their old world – and of one another.
The game will launch in the first quarter of 2020. It will be released on PlayStation 4.
