New ‘Vampire: The Masquerade – Swansong’ Trailer Sinks Its Teeth Into Gameplay [Video]
Okay, we’re all still waiting on Bloodlines 2. But there are other Vampire: The Masquerade titles in development that are very much on their way, such as Big Bad Wolf Studio’s Vampire: The Masquerade – Swansong, which has just had a new gameplay trailer released.
The gameplay trailer gives a brief overview of the abilities and playstyles of the three protagonists you can choose play as in Swansong. On top of that, you’ll also be able to customize your specific character’s stats to further suit your game. You can be an expert in speech and persuasion and dominate others, or you can develop your technology skills so you can hack computers and locks.
That’s all on top of each character’s “Disciplines” — vampire powers unique to each character. For example, Leysha can Obfuscate to conceal her presence, Emem uses Celerity to reach otherwise inaccessible locations, and Galeb makes others his puppet using Domination.
In Vampire: The Masquerade – Swansong, 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 Hazel Iversen, the Prince of of the Boston Camarilla, 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.
Vampire: The Masquerade – Swansong arrives May 19 for for PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, Xbox Series, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, and PC via the Epic Games Store.
