A New Battle Royale That Might Actually Be Worth Your Time
Vampire: The Masquerade – Bloodhunt is now available for free on PS5 and PC following a successful trial period in early access.
Sharkmob’s Battle Royale puts an interesting spin on the formula by having players take on the role of ruthless vampires caught up in a war for supremacy in the city of Prague. Today marks the beginning of Bloodhunt’s first season which was backed by a narrative launch trailer that sets the stage for the story.
The season 1 battle pass will be available from the 29th of April and include over 100 diverse items, XP boosts, and tokens that will allow players to customise the appearance of their avatars. Bloodhunt also rather proudly boasts that there are no “pay to win” mechanics, the game has been made with a “player-focused” mentality.

The game is pretty different from most Battle Royale titles by placing you in the role of an edgy and gothic creature of the night. Battinson, eat your heart out. As well as dealing with rivals from other vampire clans, players will also have to contend with computer-controlled enemies as they battle through the Old Town of Prague. you’ll have access to supernatural powers and abilities to dominate your enemies. The idea of a battle royale with vampires sounds silly on paper, and it shouldn’t work, but it kind of does.
For now, the only downside for console owners is that the game is a timed exclusive on PlayStation, for now. Players on PC and PS5 will be able to play together thanks to Cross Play, but if past launch dates have taught us anything, the servers are bound to get a little messy.
