Publisher Paradox Interactive and developer Hardsuit Labs have detailed the Camarilla faction that appears in the upcoming Vampire: The Masquerade – Bloodlines 2.
In the Seattle of Vampire: The Masquerade – Bloodlines 2, five major factions—groups of vampires who have united under a single banner—are all vying for control. Each has their own history, characteristics, and motivations. It will be up to the player to decide who to join, cross, or pit against each other.
If you missed it, Paradox Interactive previously detailed The Pioneers faction.
Get the Camarilla details below.
■ The Camarilla
Seattle has become one of the most lucrative technology and business cities in the world. In the shadows of that boom, a new kind of Kindred has emerged in the city: Sleek, business-minded; ready to influence the city from the top-floor board rooms.
Led by Prince Cross and ingrained in the corporate landscape of Seattle, the Camarilla has managed to turn its connections to tech billionaires and investment bankers into dominion over the Emerald City.
The Long Game
After 20 years at the top, every member of Cross’ faction is still very aware of being the city’s biggest target. While Cross knows that not every vampire in the city accepts the Camarilla, he has given them just enough power to not having to worry about them organizing and moving against him. Stability, prosperity, and the Masquerade have been the key components of his policy.
The Ivory Tower
Very few cities boast a vampire elite as wealthy as Seattle. In these refined circles, your true worth shows in how much control your money has bought you. Here at the top, a comfortable existence – not having to worry about access to blood and having to hunt – is all but guaranteed.
Amongst the Camarilla kindred loyal to Cross you’ll find CEOs, software moguls, bankers, venture capitalists, politicians and other members of the business elite.
Vampire: The Masquerade – Bloodlines 2 is due out for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC in Q1 2020.
