'Vampire: The Masquerade - Bloodlines 2' Introduces Ventrue As 4th Playable Clan - Screens

Successor to the iconic RPG, Vampire: The Masquerade - Bloodlines 2 features reactive storytelling, fast-paced melee combat, and intriguing characters with their own hidden motives.

Vampire: The Masquerade - Bloodlines 2 is a new role-playing game (RPG) set in a Seattle faithfully re-imagined in the World of Darkness.

Players will become the ultimate vampire as they stalk the city streets for prey, maneuver complex political relationships, and balance their need for blood against their withering humanity. 

Created in an act of vampire insurrection, your existence ignites a blood war among the vampire factions who run Seattle. To survive, you’ll choose a clan and enter into uneasy alliances with the competing factions in a world which will react to every choice you make. Unleash your supernatural powers against your prey, but be mindful of your surroundings at all times or run the risk of breaking the Masquerade -- the absolute law of secrecy that keeps Vampire society hidden from humanity.


Paradox Interactive and The Chinese Room announced that the Ventrue, fearless leaders and blue-blooded tyrants, are the fourth playable clan in Vampire: The Masquerade – Bloodlines 2

In Bloodlines 2, the persuasive Ventrue use the Disciplines of Presence and Dominate to mesmerize and awe unsuspecting foes. Those who choose to assign Phyre to the Ventrue clan will find both increased resistance to physical damage and powers of mental coercion. The complete list of Disciplines for the Ventrue will be available in early 2024.

The Clan of Kings, Blue Bloods, Tyrants, Warlords, Patricians, Borgias

Ventrue vampires usually choose their progeny from mortals familiar with power, wealth and influence. Seeing themselves as the rightful leaders of vampire society, Kindred of clan Ventrue take up the mantle of leadership wherever possible, often in the form of high positions in Camarilla Courts.

Ventrue are blue blooded tyrants who incite obedience in both their allies and their foes. Using the Disciplines of Presence and Dominate, they can mesmerize as well as awe their prey. Feeding builds up Fortitude, allowing the Ventrue to soak up more damage in case any enemy is powerful enough to resist their force of will.
