Vampire: The Masquerade – Swansong Tabletop RPG Announced
Publisher Bigben and developer behind The Council, Big Bad Wolf had already announced earlier this year they would be releasing an RPG set in the Vampire: The Masquerade universe. At PDXCon they have revealed the title Vampire: The Masquerade – Swansong, a tabletop narrative driven RPG releasing 2021.
For those who might not be familiar, Vampire: The Masquerade is one of the most iconic role-playing games, setting the bar for many tabletop gamers. The world follows the politics between clans of the Camarilla, murder, conspiracies and the inner workings of vampires, as well as their complicated secret societies.
Following the success of Big Bad Wolf’s narrative driven title The Council, the studio will take on a new genre, bringing their story telling to a whole new level. Swansong will feature a solid story, plus key RPG mechanics that will follow the fifth edition of Vampire: The Masquerade and the universe of The World of Darkness. This has long been a desire of Big Bad Wolf to create a video game set in this universe according to Thomas Veauclin, Creative & Art Director:
At the studio, we’re long-time and passionate fans of the tabletop role-playing game Vampire: The Masquerade. We have wanted to create a video game inspired by this universe for several years now. This project fits perfectly with Bigben’s desire to expand its catalogue of narrative games. We are very happy to be unveiling it together.
Head of Publishing at Bigben Benoit Clerc expresses how he along with many fans of the universe have been awaiting a “new adaptation” of this game:
My past experience as an editor and author of role-playing games, and also as Editor-in-Chief of an RPG magazine, is proof of how important this project means to me personally. Just like me, many fans have been waiting a long time for a new adaptation of this cult game, which will be developed by one of the most talented studios of its generation.
Vampire: The Masquerade – Swansong will be releasing sometime in 2021.
