Is Vampire: the Masquerade - Swansong Open World?

The answer, in short, is: not quite.

The game doesn't have a huge open-world in the same way a game like Skyrim does. Instead, the game is separated into levels. That said, each level is quite large and open, and players will be able to fully explore these levels to their fullest.

The levels feature various buildings, locations, and secrets to explore but players are limited to the level's area. The environments are designed to help further the story, so players shouldn't head into the game expecting total freedom.

Vampire: the Masquerade - Swansong is available now on PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, Nintendo Switch, and Windows PC.
