Vampire: The Masquerade – Swansong: Three Cross-Gen Vampires [VIDEO]

The World of Darkness continues its full-scale attack that started in the past few years. While Vampire: The Masquerade – Bloodlines 2 is in development, another cross-gen game is coming with the vampires.

Big Bad Wolf Studio has previously had a solid title with The Council, but with Nacon, they have christened the game (Vampire: The Masquerade – Swansong) that was announced in May 2019 as a narrative RPG. The publisher’s name might not be that familiar, though: you might know them from their previous name, Bigben Interactive.

„Play as three vampires, harness their powers, embrace their desires, and face their demons in a heart-pounding story in which your choices decide the fate of Boston. What if vampires were real? What if bloodthirsty predators lived hidden among us, engaged in a never-ending game of desire, conspiracy and betrayal? What if you became one of them? In Vampire: The Masquerade – Swansong, you play as these alluring monsters in a world where the lines between the real and supernatural are always blurred.

A Heart-Pounding Thriller: Hazel Iversen, the Swan, is the new Prince of the Boston Camarilla. An iron hand in a velvet glove, she intends to assert her power and enforce the Masquerade, the vampiric law designed to ensure humans never learn about her kind. However, the best-laid plans of mice and men have often torn asunder. As rumours of betrayal, murder, and power struggles reach fever pitch, you must work in the shadows to protect your Sect in a frantic investigation as the city of Boston is plunged into Chaos.

Play as three vampires, each over a hundred years old. Weave between their intertwined destinies, embracing their different points of view, and making use of their unique abilities to separate the truth from the lies. Each character has their vampiric disciplines that can be upgraded to suit your preferred approach. Will you choose, intimidation, seduction, or stealth? It’s your decision, provided you can keep the hunger for blood at bay.

With its unique approach to gameplay, Swansong emphasizes the consequence. Analyze each situation carefully, the choices you make during the investigation, and your social interactions with characters can have a lasting impact on the fate of your heroes’ lives and the fate of the Boston Camarilla,” the game’s website says. Disciplines that can be upgraded? That’s a gameplay element taken from The Council – that is a good idea.

Vampire: The Masquerade – Swansong will launch in 2021 on PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X, PC (Epic Games Store), Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One.
