There’s no question that Vampire: The Masquerade is a confusing franchise. Based on a tabletop role-playing game, there are multiple publishers and developers all contributing to the same franchise, and The Council maker Big Bad Wolf Studio is just one of them. Due out next year on the PlayStation 5 and the PlayStation 4, Vampire: The Masquerade – Swansong is a choice-driven thriller in which you’ll play as three different vampires in a “heart-pounding story in which your choices decide the fate of Boston”.

“Each character has their own vampiric disciplines that can be upgraded to suit your preferred approach,” the official blurb reads. “Will you choose, intimidation, seduction, or stealth? It’s your decision, provided you can keep the hunger for blood at bay. With its unique approach to gameplay, Swansong puts the emphasis on consequence. Analyse each situation carefully, the choices you make during the investigation, and your social interactions with characters can have a lasting impact on the fate of your heroes’ lives and the fate of the Boston Camarilla.”
