Vampires: The Masquerade Swansong: Mysterious assassin attacked the Camarilla
With the release of the narrative RPG's vampire: The Masquerade - Swansong in about two months published Nacon and Big Bad Wolf yesterday, as we have already reported, a new gameplay video for the game.
In the video, the fans learn more about the unprecedented crisis that joins the vampire company Boston and get impressions from the beginning of this situation.
Now further details were published, which will be accompanied by some screenshots:
Mysterious assassin attacked the Boston Camarilla - a secret society that most vampires of the city belong. Galb Bazory, EMEM Louis and Leysha are commissioned by Hazel Iversen to find out the identity of the attackers and the motives for the major attack.
The order is simple: infiltration, research and find answers, if necessary with supernatural forces.
In the best detective manian, fans visit the search for valuable clues different places, solve puzzles and interact with a variety of characters to move in the game.
But just like in narrative RPGs, a genre already explored Big Bad Wolf in The Council, Vampires: The Masquerade - Swansong offers a variety of gameplay mechanics.
Each of the three heroes has a character sheet that can be fully adapted. So it is possible to be an expert in speeches and persuasion and dominate others, or their own technical skills can be expanded to crack computers and locks.
The heroes also have their own vampire forces: the disciplines. For example, Leysa can hide their presence with "darkening", EMEM uses "speed" to achieve inaccessible places, and Galb makes others to his puppet by applying "mastery".
Some particularly twilight NPCs solve confrontations, fighting in the form of dialogues where fans find the right arguments and need to use skills and disciplines to convince the other person, pricing their secrets.
However, the intensive use of vampiric powers also has a high price: hunger for blood. When one of the heroes goes out the blood, the inner beast takes over control and affects the options for action.
To prevent this, it is possible to charge a person and feed them from his blood. However, it is important that this action happens in secret to maintain the masquerade, the Vampire Act, which hides the existence of the cages of the night in front of humans.
The game also contains scripted action sequences in certain situations where it is essential to keep a clear head, despite time pressure and make the right decisions.
Vampires: The Masquerade - Swansong is a narrative game with several action strands, in which certain decisions permanently influence the fate of heroes and the Boston vampire community.
Vampires: The Masquerade - Swansong will be published on 19 May 2022 for PC and consoles.
