If you were looking for a new battle royale game to get into, Vampire: the Masquerade - Bloodhunt will be out for PC and PlayStation 5 on April 27th. Developer Sharkmob’s take on a free to play third-person action game with a vampire twist, is set on the streets of Prague, where there’s a war between vampire clans.

Since it's an all-out war between vampire clans, the twist here is that supernatural powers, and the need to feed on blood, as well as the flexibility that being a vampire gives you, are all strategic elements you can use to help you win. You'll be able to choose your own clan alliance when customizing your character, with several clans and archetypes from the Vampire: The Masquerade lore in effect to help define your playstyle. Once you're set, you'll be able to take on your rivals as well as soldiers in night battles throughout a recreated Old Town in Prague.

Bloodhunt will release on PC and PlayStation 5, and there is going to be cross-play between the platforms. There are special features on PlayStation 5,  with 3D audio letting you identify threats or the direction they're coming from and lights on the Dualsense controller changing based on team color or when players are tracked down or even blood hunted. The controller speakers will also contribute sounds for consumables or when you are feeding to replenish your blood supply.

The free-to-play game will launch in 13 languages and is focused on what the Sharkmob development team calls “player first” design, and they are promising no pay to win elements.   There will be pre-order packs available, with cosmetics and currency for the end game store that you can use for other items or even the Battle Pass.
