Announced at Summer Games Fest 2021, Blood Hunt is a brand new entry into the Vampire: The Masquerade universe. Just like its predecessors, Blood Hunt will place players in the shoes of an immortal vampire. However, despite this, Blood Hunt will be a completely separate experience from the upcoming Vampire: The Masquerade sequel, Bloodlines II. Here’s a short synopsis, courtesy of the game’s Steam page:

“Bloodhunt is a thrilling, free-to-play battle royale game set in the Vampire: The Masquerade universe. Use your supernatural powers, weapons, and wit to dominate the night and restore the Masquerade!”

Thankfully, despite being free to play, the game’s developers, Sharkmob, have said it won’t be “pay-to-win”. Instead, players will be able to choose specific clans to gain supernatural powers. Additionally, players will also be able to customise their vampires before being unleashed on the streets of Prague. Did somebody say Hot Topic?

Hopefully, Vampire: The Masquerade Blood Hunt proves to be a refreshing take on the Battle Royale format. While the game’s concrete jungle should be fun to explore, it’ll be interesting to see how Sharkmob utilises the cityscape’s sense of verticality.

Blood Hunt is expected to release on PC at some point in 2021. You can also sign up to a closed alpha on the game’s official website.
