The Baron is the third faction that players will be able to represent in the upcoming game and while the head Baron himself remains shrouded in mystery, his works are often carried out by appointed lieutenants. These lieutenants are non-discriminatory, meaning they could be literally anyone. From humans to ghouls, to Thinbloods and vampires – even drifters and local gangs can be under the Baron’s rule.  

“Where a less prudent man might turn such capital into a bid for Princedom, he has so far been content to stay in the back-alleys of his turf, hoard favors, and brutally defend his business interests,” explains the studio in a recent update on the game’s official website. “It’s hard to know just how many vampires swear allegiance to The Baron of Aurora. In parts, that’s because very few of Seattle’s Kindred have actually met him. Acting through his lieutenants, he has taken in the city’s destitute, defiant and desperate, turning them into a ruthlessly disciplined force with hands in every shady deal.

“Where a less prudent man might turn such capital into a bid for Princedom, he has so far been content to stay in the back-alleys of his turf, hoard favors, and brutally defend his business interests.”

Through strategic control and a realistic eye for any sort of power shifts in the city, the Baron and his network of workers is a real powerhouse in Vampire: The Masquerade – Bloodlines 2. As for the game itself, the latest adventure begins in March 2020 for Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC players.
