New Battle Royale Vampire The Masquerade Bloodhunt Is Free-To-Play

Bloodhunt is free-to-play and available on Steam and PlayStation 5

Out now, Vampire The Masquerade Bloodhunt is free-to-play and available for Steam on PC and console on PS5. Surprisingly, it really is the bloodsucking vampire battle royale game we never knew we wanted.

Developed and published by Sharkmob, a developer based in Malmö and London and owned by Tencent, Vampire The Masquerade Bloodhunt is set in Prague in the “World of Darkness” where players assume the roles of vampires attempting to survive a war.

Players can battle alone or in groups in the streets and rooftops of Prague where they shoot ranged weapons, fight close quarters with melee weapons, and utilize supernatural vampiric abilities. Players must also hide their vampire identities from humans, a process known as the “Masquerade”.

Like many others in the crowded battle royale genre, Bloodhunt is free-to-play with in-game cosmetic goods available for purchase. Great news—there won’t be any pay-to-win mechanics.

At its core, this vampire battle royale allows freedom of movement, even at the beginner’s level. Players can scale structures and move around with ease, and the mobility aspect expands even more after spending time with the traversal systems. It seems that Respawn’s Apex Legends really has set the bar in movement in the BR genre, and Bloodhunt does a great job at it as well.

There are a variety of classes available for the player to choose from, each with its own unique set of skills and passive abilities. Currently there are seven classes that are divided into four clans. As you’d expect, each clan has archetypes that correspond to their backgrounds.

Yes, Vampire The Masquerade Bloodhunt is free-to-play and will most likely suck your time away. Although it may not compete amongst the best in its genre, this vampire battle royale really does offer a unique perspective on action and traversal mechanics. Expect to have a bloody good time.
