The first game revealed at the Nacon Connect is Vampire: The Masquerade - Swansong, being developed by Big Bad Wolf Studios. In this story-driven RPG, players will take the role of three different characters from three different clans investigating an attack on the Camarilla clan.

The cinematic trailer for Vampire: The Masquerade - Swansong takes place at a party in contemporary Boston, where a Camarilla vampiress is giving a speech to the guests and subjects. They're celebrating the ascension of a new vampire Prince to take charge of the Camarilla and unify Boston and Hartford. As the speech ends, an unknown assailant arrives at the party loaded to the teeth. The ensuing shootout is the inciting incident players will be charged with investigating in the game.

 

After the trailer, Eliott Hipeau, a quest designer at Big Bad Wolf Studios, spoke about the game and what we can expect from it. A major detail about the game's story is that players will take the role of three different vampires from three different clans, each with their own powers, backstory, and world views. Like in the tabletop source material, players can allocate points to various skills and attributes. Some of these skills can help players influence and persuade humans and vampires, while others are more practical skills such as lockpicking and computer hacking. Eliott also stated that there will be multiple endings based off of the choices players make in their quest.

Vampire: The Masquerade - Swansong is set to release sometime in 2021. It'll release on PC via Epic Games Store, PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, Xbox Series X, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch.
