Vampire: The Masquerade Swansong is a narrative-driven adventure that follows the story of three vampires as they try to protect their Sect in a frantic investigation that’ll plunge the city of Boston into chaos… and all kinds of other vampire shenanigans.

How to Skip Cutscenes in Vampire The Masquerade Swansong

While it’s not possible to just completely skip a cutscene, players can fast forward throughout them by pressing and holding X on Xbox One, Square on PlayStation, and the Spacebar on PC.

This can only be done when replaying something that has already been seen or experienced when replaying a certain chapter or level of the game. If you’re playing through the game for the first time, you’ll have to watch the cutscenes in their entirety at normal speed.

Even when you’re playing through on a second or third playthrough of a scene (or the entire game) you won’t be able to just skip the cutscene entirely. You’ll still have to use the fast-forward option instead.

While this may seem frustrating, it should be noted that Vampire The Masquerade Swansong is a narrative-driven experience where you’ll often be asked to make decisions at different points to determine how parts of the story play out.

As such, you’ll want to pay attention to what’s going on in the narrative, especially the first time, so you know the context of the decisions you’re making. This is likely why you can’t skip cutscenes on your first playthrough of the game, just to make sure you don’t miss out on important details in the narrative.

That’s everything you need to know on how to skip cutscenes and dialog in Vampire The Masquerade Swansong. For more tips and tricks on the game, be sure to search for Twinfinite or check out the links below.
