    Nacon, the French publisher formerly known as Bigben Interactive, broadcast their Nacon Connect digital conference today. The very first game to appear was Vampire: The Masquerade - Swansong, the "narrative RPG" from The Council developer Big Bad Wolf first announced last year. In Swansong, players will assume the roles of three different vampires in the aftermath of a brutal ambush on the new Camarilla Prince of Boston, which can be seen in the game's new cinematic trailer. In the following three minute segment, Big Bad Wolf quest designer Eliott Hipeau reveals some additional details. The game will feature character creation for each of its three protagonists, allowing them to specialize in persuasion, lockpicking, hacking and other abilities. Later on during the stream, we finally got our first look at gameplay from Nacon's other World of Darkness game, Werewolf: The Apocalypse - Earthblood. It's just as popamole as I imagined it would be, but I'll include it here for the sake of completeness.


    Swansong and Earthblood are both releasing next year, the latter on February 4th. The catch unfortunately is that both games appear to be Epic Games Store-exclusives. At least Spiders' latest action-RPG Steelrising isn't. Ever wanted to play as Marie Antoinette's robot bodyguard in alternate history mecha-Paris? Now you can!

    one thing for sure, Werewolf is gay & certainly not worth a penny even if they deliver it with hookers and booze

    I'm not always critical of new games, take for instance this one, Swansong. The narrator has that slightly foreign and extremely attractive accent. What is that, French? Reminds me of Leliana from Dragon Age.

    Werewolf looks kinda fun, honestly.
    Obviously as far away from an RPG as the latest DIRT, but still, could be a nice throwback to some PS2-style action games.

    Music in the Werewolf trailer was better than everything else we heard so far from Wokelines 2.

    It's Alien Weaponry, Maori inspired metal. Decent stuff.

    That being said, Swansong pretty much says nothing about the gameplay, and Werewolf looks like edgy new age trash, taking the shittiest possible approach to the already lousy franchise.

    I remember watching an interview with one of the guys working on Werewolf ages ago and everything he said just made it sound like they were doing World of Darkness: Antifa. I said as much in the comments and someone was like "That's exactly what we need right now, anti-Trump werewolves!" Still makes me lol

    That's a WW thing. Nothing that the developers made up by themselves.

    Are these the ones that gave the boot to Avellone for being a "sexual predator"?
