Vampire: The Masquerade – Swansong available now on Nintendo Switch

Vampire: The Masquerade – Swansong is now available to play on the Nintendo Switch.

The game from developer Big Bad Wolf originally debuted last year on May 19, 2022, for PC, Xbox Series X/S, Xbox One, PS4, and the PS5.

Vampire: The Masquerade – Swansong is an exciting dive into the vampiric politics and intrigue of the World of Darkness. Set in Boston, players take control of three very different vampires. They are Leysha, Emem, and Galeb, and each embodies other clans of Kindred and, therefore, has different abilities.

Each vampire has their own scenes within a given chapter that you have to play through. Sometimes you can choose the order you play them, but the game usually makes that choice for you. As you go, you unravel more about their pasts, motivations, secrets, and plots within the World of Darkness.

What’s particularly exciting about this setting is that it’s adapted from the classic tabletop RPG, Vampire: The Masquerade, and its gameplay often reflects it by emphasizing the importance of player choice, interaction with other characters, and investigating the world and everything it has on offer.

One particular highlight is that these great, fearsome vampires hide their true selves and power from humanity, so players must interact with two very different and unique worlds.

Even better, now Nintendo Switch players can get in on the fun with Vampire: The Masquerade – Swansong now being available to play for the Nintendo Switch.
