The recent PDXcon unveiled some new details about upcoming RPG title Vampire: The Masquerade – Swansong as Bigben Interactive fielded some questions that fans were eager to find out answers to.
Swansong Not The Last Vampire: The Masquerade Game
It was this year’s PDXcon where Bigben Interactive revealed the full title for their latest RPG game, Vampire: The Masquerade – Swansong. This game follows the popular universe of The World of Darkness which is shared with other Vampire: The Masquerade games and Werewolf the Apocalypse – Earthblood which got its first trailer during PDXcon.
According to the latest Q&A session that took place at PDXcon, Bigben Interactive shared that Vampire: The Masquerade – Swansong has been confirmed not to be the last in series. While Swansong can mean a stage of finality or final act, this is not the case for this title:
Swansong is not the last Vampire: The Masquerade game. Swansong refers to the state of the world and Kindred society as a whole in our game. Recently we’ve seen a reinvigoration of the Vampire: The Masquerade brand and we’re proud to be part of that.
They also shed some light on why “Swansong” was chosen as part of the title, stating while it won’t be the last, it does represent what is happening in society at this stage:
Risk of exposure, overpopulation, climate change, internal feuds… Swansong reflects the state of Kindred society in the city where the game is set. Recent events have caused Kindred society to reevaluate how they hide their existence in modern nights. As the Camarilla retreats into itself, unknown threats on the horizon could result in the collapse of the Ivory Tower itself.
If you were wondering if they’ll be any connections with Vampire The Masquerade: Bloodlines, while are both set in the same universe, these are “independent games” so not direct connection between them.
Vampire: The Masquerade – Swansong will be releasing sometime in 2021.
