Fans also got to see a new Vampire: The Masquerade – Swansong trailer starring Galeb, one of three playable characters.
Power, wealth, immortality, at one point or another Galeb has had it all. He has traveled the world, amassed a fortune and established himself as one of the oldest and most feared vampires in the city of Boston. And yet he stays behind, clutching at something he’s lost. Or maybe something that was never there to begin with.
WELCOME TO THE WORLD OF DARKNESSWhat if vampires were real? What if these bloodthirsty predators lived hidden among us, meticulously and skillfully hatching ancient conspiracies? And what if you became one of them?
In Vampire: The Masquerade – Swansong, you play as these seductive monsters in a sophisticated world where the line between the real and the supernatural is always blurred.
A RUNNING THRILLERHazel Iversen, the swan, is the new prince of the Boston Camarilla. With an iron hand in a velvet glove, she wants to assert her power and respect the Masquerade, the vampire law designed to ensure that humans never learn of the existence of these creatures of the night. But nothing works as planned. With rumors of conspiracies, assassinations and infighting, you must work in the shadows to protect your cult in a frantic investigation that plunges Boston into chaos.
PLAY AS 3 ORIGINAL VAMPIREPlay as 3 vampires that are over a hundred years old. Progress through the game through their intertwined destinies, interact with their differing points of view and use their character sheets to try to separate the truth from the lies. Each character has their own skills and vampire disciplines that you can individually upgrade to your preferred approach.
Will you choose intimidation, seduction or stealth? It’s your decision, as long as you can satisfy your hunger for blood.
GAMEPLAY WITH CONSEQUENCESWith its unique approach to gameplay, Swansong emphasizes the consequences of your actions in both investigation and your social interactions with characters. Analyze each situation carefully as your decisions can have huge consequences for the lives of your heroes and the fate of the Boston Camarilla.
