Vampire: The Masquerade – Swansong Gets New Trailer, Pre-orders Open
NACON and Big Bad Wolf announced that pre-orders are now open for Vampire: The Masquerade – Swansong. The game launches on May 19, 2022, for PC, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X|S, with a Nintendo Switch version to released later in the year. Digital pre-orders will receive an alternative outfit for each character and a digital copy of Vampire: The Masquerade – Coteries of New York, while physical pre-orders will receive the alternative outfits plus an original soundtrack vinyl. The companies released a new trailer alongside the pre-order announcement, showing the game’s three playable characters.
Vampire: The Masquerade – Swansong utilises the rules and world of the fifth edition of the Vampire: The Masquerade tabletop game. Players select one of three protagonists — Galeb Bazory, Emem Louis, and Leysha — tasked with investigating attacks on the Boston Camarilla by unknown assassins. Each character has a “character sheet” that players can customise; for example, choosing to specialise in persuasion or to be an expert in technology.
