During the PDXCon 2019, Bigben revealed a new game in the Vampire: The Masquerade series. Called Swansong, it is a narrative roleplaying game coming in 2021.
The project is being developed by the team from Big Bad Wolf studio, the developers of adventure The Council. Weave between the intertwined tales of 3 vampires, each belonging to a different clan of the Camarilla, confront their bias and unravel fact from fiction. Navigate the whispers of conspiracy, murder and power struggles. Protect your clan, discover the truth, and above all protect the Masquerade!
Recent events have caused Kindred society to reevaluate how it protects its existence in modern nights. As the Camarilla retreats into itself, unknown threats on the horizon could see the collapse of the Ivory Tower itself. pic.twitter.com/PljV61x2my

“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,” says Thomas Veauclin, Creative & Art Director at Big Bad Wolf.
“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,” adds Benoit Clerc, Head of Publishing at Bigben.” 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.”
