About the game
Developer: Big Bad Wolf
Vampire: The Masquerade – Swansong is a narrative-driven, single-player role-playing video game in which the player controls three vampires with different vampiric disciplines (abilities),switching between them over the course of the game. The player can customize the characters by choosing to upgrade their disciplines and character statistics to suit their preferred playstyle; this influences character interaction and skills used while exploring the game world, such as picking locks and hacking computer terminals. Throughout the game, the characters are put in difficult situations where the player has to make moral choices.
The story is set in Boston, in the World of Darkness, where vampires exist unbeknownst to humanity – the vampiric practice called the Masquerade, which is upheld by the vampire sect the Camarilla. There, the new Camarilla Prince Hazel Iversen is trying to strengthen the Camarilla’s presence by bringing Boston and Hartford together. The story follows three vampires from different vampire clans with differing views on the Camarilla’s rule, who investigate conspiracies in Boston following a shootout, starting with who ordered the attack and why.
