Big Bad Wolf Studio (who you might know via The Council) will not see its game get published by Nacon this year.
More and more games are being confirmed to be pushed out from 2021 to 2022. This list is joined by Vampire: The Masquerade – Swansong, which, as a cross-gen game, will be available on almost everything (as only the iOS, Android pair will be skipped), but not this year… instead, its launch is set to happen in 2022.
To make up for the delay, Nacon revealed a new trailer for it during its Nacon Connect broadcast, featuring one of the playable characters in the game, set in the World of Darkness: „Power, wealth, immortality, at one point or another, Galeb has had it all. He’s travelled the world, amassed a fortune, and established himself as one of the oldest and most feared Vampires in the city of Boston.
And yet, he’s left wanting, grasping for something he’s lost. Or perhaps something that was never there, to begin with. Galeb is one of the three playable characters whose intertwined stories will decide the fate of Boston in Vampire: The Masquerade – Swansong,” Nacon wrote.
A year ago, we have recapped nicely what this game will be: „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 its 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.”
Vampire: The Masquerade – Swansong will launch in February 2022 on PlayStation 5, Xbox Series, PC (as an Epic Games Store exclusive), PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch.
