What if vampires were real? You may well get to discover the answer to that question in the heart-pounding thrills of Vampire: The Masquerade – Swansong.
Available today on Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, PS4, PS5 and PC, Vampire: The Masquerade – Swansong from big Bad Wolf and Nacon will whisk you off to a world of darkness; one in which you’ll get to discover whether or not vampires actually are real.
A game that is set in the dark underbelly of Boston Camrilla, continuing the long-running franchise with the most exciting of all installment, Vampire: The Masquerade – Swansong will see you becoming a bloodthirsty predator, as you play through the lives of the vamparic monsters who are populating a world stuck between the real, and the supernatural.
It tells of how Hazel Iversen, the Swan, has become the new Prince of the Boston Camarilla. With an iron hand in a velvet glove, it is here who intends to assert her power and reinforce the Masquerade, the vampiric law designed to ensure humans never learn about her kind. As you would suspect, it’s not totally straightforward and up crop rumors of betrayal, murder, and power struggles. It’s up to you to work in the shadows to protect your Sect in a frantic investigation as the city of Boston is plunged into Chaos.
See, you are playing as three vampires; each of whom is more than a hundred years old. You’ll get the chance to move between them, taking in the tales from their own distinct viewpoints, making the most of their abilities as you go. Why? Well, you’ll need to try and get a handle on the truth, separating it from the utter lies.
With upgrades galore, a unique approach to gameplay in which Swansong is able to deal with consequence and the chance to fully analyse a multitude of situations, the fate of your heroes – and of Boston Camarilla – is in your hands.
Key features include:
- • Each character has its own personality, with its own morality and dilemma
- • A story-based game with multiple story branches where choices have consequences
- • Each of the three heroes has a character sheet with characteristics, Skills and Disciplines that you can modify depending on your choices
- • Original gameplay where each dialog confrontation makes you move forward in the story
- • An oppressive atmosphere and a mysterious universe, faithful to the tabletop role playing game
- • An original soundtrack made by famous composer, Olivier Derivière
