Video game publisher Nacon hosted its first digital conference today on YouTube. Amongst the new game announcements and new previews of previously announced titles, Nacon is bringing the next Vampire: The Masquerade game to the Nintendo Switch.

The fourth video game based on the tabletop role-playing game, Vampire: The Masquerade – Swansong, begins with a blood-curdling bang, leaving a mystery for you to solve. Eliott Hipeau (Quest-designer at Big Bad Wold Studio) briefly discussed during the conference what roles you’ll be dropped into in Swansong. Plus, he confirmed that due to the number of choices presented within the game, there multiple endings will be available. 


For a more detailed explanation concerning Swansong’s plot, the following is from the game’s dedicated website:


“Hazel Iversen, the Swan, is the new Prince of the Boston Camarilla. An iron hand in a velvet glove, she intends to assert her power and enforce the Masquerade, the vampiric law designed to ensure humans never learn about her kind. However, the best laid plans of mice and men are often torn asunder.

As rumors of betrayal, murder, and power struggles reach fever pitch, you must work in the shadows to protect your Sect in a frantic investigation as the city of Boston is plunged into Chaos.

Play as 3 vampires, each over a hundred years old. Weave between their intertwined destinies, embracing their different points of view, and making use of their unique abilities to separate the truth from the lies. Each character has their own vampiric disciplines that can be upgraded to suit your preferred approach.

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. Analyze 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.”

So, what choices will you make when Vampire: The Masquerade – Swansong is released next year on the Switch?
