NACON and Big Bad Wolf have announced that the release date for Vampire: The Masquerade – Swansong has been delayed into May 2022.
“With Swansong, we are taking the narrative-RPG formula so core to our studio DNA and scaling up as we adapt the systems from the Vampire: The Masquerade tabletop into a video game experience. The political intrigue and supernatural mystery baked into the setting are a perfect fit for the story we want to tell,” the publisher shared in an update.
“Our focus is on crafting a world that draws you in, that requires you to make difficult decisions and live with the consequences. Swansong features lots of characters, choices, dialogues, and opportunities to decide how the story plays and our ultimate focus is on quality. With this in mind, we’ve made the difficult decision to delay the launch of Vampire: The Masquerade – Swansong from February 2022 to May 2022.
“This wasn’t a decision we took lightly, but one necessary to ensure the highest possibly quality while retaining a healthy work-life balance for our team. Granted, the pandemic also threw a couple of wrenches into our planning, but this delay will allow us to apply some additional polish and give us some extra time for QA. We’re a small but very passionate team, eager to create an immersive experience that rivals the sort of personal storytelling you’d experience from a great tabletop session. One that leaves you with questions long after the credits have stopped rolling (but a reason to go back and see how things could have been different.
“We can’t wait to share more with you, so stay tuned. Thank you very much for your patience and all of your support.”
Hazel Iversen – the Swan – has become the new Prince of the Boston Camarilla. Known to deliver an iron hand in a velvet glove, she looks to assert her power and enforce the Masquerade – the vampiric law that was created to make sure that humans never learn about her kind.
However, as rumours of betrayal, murder and power struggles reach fever pitch, you must work in the shadows to protect your Sect as the city of Boston descends into chaos.
In this upcoming role-playing game, you will have the chance to play as three vampires that each belong to a different clan of the Camarilla.
You will weave between their intertwined destinies, making use of their abilities to separate fact from fiction with the choices that you make during your investigation having a lasting impact on both the Boston Camarilla and the fate that awaits your characters.
Vampire: The Masquerade – Swansong will release on the Nintendo eShop for Nintendo Switch worldwide on 19th May 2022.
