A 3rd person free-to-play Battle Royale game set in the cult classic Vampire: The Masquerade universe - Bloodhunt will invite players to become the ultimate vampire in a genre unique, very stylish and mature setting.

What if you were a vampire in a war against others of your kind; could you survive the night? This is the question raised as Sharkmob’s shares a look into its dark and intense Battle Royale game Vampire: The Masquerade - Bloodhunt.

For the first time ever, experience the concept of vampires at war as sects clash in the city of Prague, triggered by the arrival of strike-teams from the Second Inquisition. Use your supernatural powers, weapons and wit to eradicate your enemies and deal with the hunters – all while you struggle to maintain the Masquerade. 

Prague - Present Night

For centuries, vampires have lived and thrived among humans, maintaining The Masquerade. Now a treacherous betrayal has stirred a war amongst the vampire sects, exposing them to the secret society known as The Entity. With a holy mission to annihilate all vampires they take the hunt to the streets of Prague…

Players will need to use their supernatural powers, weapons, and wit to survive the night and restore the masquerade! 

Feed on potent blood to grow in power then hunt using your supernatural abilities and senses. With Prague in lockdown, defy gravity and strike from anywhere in your quest to dominate the night.

Choose your Clan allegiance to define your playstyle and let your personality shine through as you create your most unique looks for rivals to remember.

Form unholy alliances or fight alone away from human eyesight. As the hunters become the hunted, fight to the last drop to become the ultimate vampire and restore order.

“After a successful Early Access period, Sharkmob has been implementing feedback from the game’s community and we can’t wait to show fans how the game has progressed. We’re delighted to be bringing the game to a new audience of PlayStation 5 players and are excited to be launching the full game this April in all its glory.” said Bloodhunt Producer David Sirland.

Bloodhunt has been made even more immersive on the PS5 version of the game with high quality graphics, exciting DualSense Controller features and epic Tempest 3D Audio.

With the power of the PS5, we have been able to aim for our target of 60 frames per second, even in the battle’s most action-packed moments. Importantly, you will battle to dominate the night in a highly detailed rendition of Prague. Choose quality mode, for the best rendering quality running in 4K at 30fps, or performance mode, to experience Bloodhunt at 60fps rendered in 1440P. 

Bloodhunt is set in modern Prague, a city with lots of landmarks, narrow streets and tall buildings, so when it comes to sound, we have had a lot of things to consider. Especially when you have access to high-end headphones such as the PS5 Pulse 3D headset. 

With an expansive soundscape, the sound in Bloodhunt is vital as it allows you to identify nearby threats, or the direction bullets are being fired from. In this way, the 3D audio helps you take strategic decisions on how to outsmart your opponents. 

The PlayStation Tempest 3D Audio technology also really allows us to highlight one of Bloodhunt’s most unique features: verticality. The PS Tempest 3D Audio technology improves the possibilities of audio spatialization, by allowing you to localize enemies more precisely than ever before, even on a vertical axis. 

The DualSense wireless controller features really allowed us to take Bloodhunt’s fast-paced, visceral gameplay to the next level of immersion, and we cannot wait for you to try it out.

The DualSense controller’s adaptive triggers and vibrations allow us to make you truly feel the weight of the battle as you experience the impact of each powerful attack and weapon. As an example, shotguns have a heavy kick and trigger pull, while sub-machine guns can be tapped more easily but with a more intense jolt. 

The controller’s light also guides you through the game. It lights up based on your team color or when you are tracked down by your opponents and thus bloodhunted, so keep an eye on it. 

Moreover, the speaker on the DualSense controller will bring the immersion up a notch with high fidelity sounds for consumables or when feeding on mortals. 

Bloodhunt is free-to-play for all players, but for something extra special, fans can pre-order the PlayStation 5 Founder’s Ultimate Edition of the game, which comes with 100+ additional cosmetics items for players to customise their characters even more and 1,000 Tokens of in-game currency to purchase vanity items or the game’s Battle Pass.

When you pre-order the Founder’s Ultimate Edition, you receive the one-of-a-kind, PS5-exclusive epic Samurai mask that will instill fear in your rivals. This Edition also gives you two exclusive killer outfits: Headrush and Fast Forward, both unique and of epic rarity. Furthermore, it comes with over 100+ items, from stylish outfits and hairdos to exquisite piercings and tattoos. You’ll be able to show off your style with looks that truly kill! And in case your wardrobe is still lacking, or you want to buy a Battle Pass, this pack also includes 1,000 Tokens to spend in the in-game store.  

Key Features:

  • Join the Bloodhunt using supernatural powers and traverse anywhere to battle other players and computer controlled enemies to be the last vampire standing.
