New Vampire: The Masquerade – Bloodlines 2 Faction Revealed

Hardsuit Labs has revealed a new faction for the upcoming blood-drenched sequel Vampire: The Masquerade – Bloodlines 2, known as the Pioneers. The Pioneers are but one of five factions that are available in Bloodlines 2, with more to be detailed in the coming months.

Meet Vampire: The Masquerade – Bloodlines 2’s Latest Faction

The group got their name as they were the first blood-suckers to make Seattle their home and take over the city, and are ruled by Lou Grand. He’s apparently tired of letting other factions gain more territory in the city and watching the Pioneers’ control slip away.

Since they’ve been around for a long time, the Pioneers have amassed a lot of wealth during their time in Seattle, but that has done little in regards to gaining any influence. The group are made up of loggers, fishermen, bootleggers, old money bourgeoisie, musicians, and artists.

Here’s some of the Pioneers’ defining characteristics.

  • Past Glories – Having built the city, many of Lou’s vampires are in love with their memories of what Seattle once was. Having known each other for a long time, they are intensely loyal. The Pioneers fight tooth and nail to preserve whatever remains of their old world – and of one another.
  • The Insider’s Club – The Pioneers held Seattle for the longest part of the city’s existence. That’s almost unheard of on the West Coast. Having lost so much in the last 20 years, they have become skeptical of the changing world, including any fledgling looking to join.
  • Old Money – 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.

Vampire: The Masquerade – Bloodlines 2 is scheduled for release on PlayStation 4, PC, and Xbox One in Q1 2020.
