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.

Launching in early April, Vampire: The Masquerade - Bloodhunt has reached 4 million player accounts to date and developer Sharkmob has now partnered with Save the Children to launch their very first “Bloodhunt For Charity” Stream Event, coming up tomorrow Saturday 14th May. 

Beginning at 19:00 CEST / 10.00 PST, the event will be hosted by famed E-sports commentator Alex “Goldenboy'' Mendez alongside Emmy-nominated broadcaster, Jacki Jing. The tournament will see eight teams from around the world go head to head in a new Charity Race format where every elimination is converted into actual donations of up to 15 dollars for a total sum of $100 000 USD. Each team competes to amass the most donations where only one team can be crowned Bloodhunt Charity Champions with a replica scourge blade trophy with their name on it. 

But this is about so much more than mere bragging rights, as all proceeds from the event go towards the amazing work done globally by Save the Children.

"Today, a record number of children, 450 million, that's – 1 in 6 – are living in conflict around the world. Children are on the frontlines of an unprecedented global humanitarian crisis and their right to survival, protection and education are under threat. As conflict rages around the world – from Ukraine to Myanmar, Syria to Yemen - It's more important than ever to press that children everywhere have the right to live in peace and safety. We are proud to have Sharkmob support Save the Children's programs and the call to #StopTheWarOnChildren." said Paul Butcher, Head Global Digital Marketing, Save the Children

The eight teams will be captained by world renowned streamers including Shroud, Sacriel, xQc, and AverageJonas. The event will be broadcast live on their respective channels as well as at Twitch.tv/bloodhuntgame

Throughout the event, teams will be encouraging their viewers to donate as that can change the rules for each round. Donating to the Tiltify page gives viewers opportunities to win some incredible prizes. Up for grabs are exclusive twitch drop content and giveaways from partners such as Intel, Razer, Xtrfy, Crucial plus the chance to become the lucky owner of a brand new $10 000 USD valued custom built gaming PC, PS5 consoles, Mini-fridges, custom Bloodhunt noblegaming chair, and much more.

This time we go global together with Save the Children, a cause we feel strongly about supporting” says Sharkmob CEO Fredrik Rundqvist. “Beyond sponsoring the event, we’re happy to be converting each elimination point in the charity race into donations totaling $100 000 USD towards Save The Children.”
