During the last couple of months three of the factions that will be present in Vampire: The Masquerade – Bloodlines 2 have been revealed, and we got to know a little more about their backgrounds and motivations. Now, a new one has been revealed and it seems to be rather unusual if you compare it with the others. The Newcomers are a group of vampires that follow a charismatic leader, the mysterious “Professor” Victor Goga, who promises anyone that joins his organization safe access to blood.

Bloodlines 2 – The Newcomers

The origins of the Newcomers and the motivations that drive their actions are unknown, but it seems that it was originally formed by blood mages and academics. Their willingness to accept pretty much any vampire into their ranks has caused them to be a rather heterogeneous and unorthodox bunch of vampires composed by scholars, dreamers, runaways and other types. Nobody knows why Prince Cross has granted them access to the University District hunting grounds, especially considering that it´s one of the territories most generally desired by the Kindred, but the truth is that they control this area.

It is not clear if the Newcomers are some kind of subsidiary organization of the Clan Tremere or an independent group, but it’s undeniable that they either have some kind of influence over the Prince or are part of a more elaborate plan with an unknown objective. Most of the other factions look at them suspiciously, and the Baron is not in good terms with them because they see the Newcomers as a threat.

The Newcomer’s centre of operations

With the reveal of the Newcomers, the map of the factions and clans that will make an appearance in Vampire: The Masquerade – Bloodlines 2 is almost complete ahead of the relesase of the game on . There is just one faction more to be revealed and it’s likely that it will be announced in the following weeks.
