Lesquin, France, April 7, 2022 – The night has come for Boston’s Camarilla, announcing the beginning of pre-orders for Vampire: The Masquerade – Swansong, the Narrative RPG of Big Bad Wolf studio. The game will be available on May 19th on PlayStation®4, PlayStation®5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X, and PC (Epic Games Store).
Mysterious assassins have attacked the Boston Camarilla – a secret society comprising most of the vampires in the city. Galeb Bazory, Emem Louis, and Leysha are tasked by the Prince of the city’s Kindred with learning the identity of the attackers as well as the motives underlying the large-scale attack. The orders are simple: infiltrate, investigate and get answers, using supernatural powers if necessary.
In this adaptation of the pen and paper game, players of Vampire: The Masquerade – Swansong take control of three heroes with their own character sheets. Through their choices, they will shape the stats of their characters. Using their Skills, it is possible to pick a lock, intimidate an NPC or make more efficient deductions based on hints. The protagonists also have vampiric powers, known as Disciplines, allowing them to reach inaccessible areas, conceal their presence, or foresee potential futures.
Vampire: The Masquerade – Swansong combines the exploration of a wide variety of environments, skillfully-crafted dialogs, clever puzzles, and a branching story where every choice comes with a consequence. The characters are finely developed and, faithful to the World of Darkness IP, reveal that they are monsters in spite of their human appearance.
With more than fifteen different endings for the main characters and the fate of Boston’s Camarilla, each Vampire: The Masquerade – Swansong player will experience their own adventure in this unique Narrative RPG.
Vampire: The Masquerade – Swansong will be available on PlayStation®4, PlayStation®5, Xbox One et Xbox Series X|S, and PC (Epic Games Store) on the 19th of May 2022.
Nintendo SwitchTM will be available later in 2022!
