After almost eight months on Steam Early Access, Sharkmob announced that Vampire: The Masquerade - Bloodhunt will be released publicly on two platforms on 27th April 2022.

For those eager to take an early peek at the game, Vampire: The Masquerade - Bloodhunt is still available through Steam Early Access until April 27, the day of its official release.

Unlike the early access release, the full release will include full controller support, new archetypes, customization items, seasonal events, and improved performance.

Vampire: The Masquerade - Bloodhunt will be available for free both during Early Access and after its full release.

Vampire: The Masquerade's gameplay will allow players to shoot, stun and teleport their way to the top.

Vampire: The Masquerade - Bloodhunt is a third-person battle royale game. The game pits three of the Vampire: The Masquerade's clans against one another: Brujah, Nosferatu, and Toreador. Players receive special abilities based on the clan they choose, allowing them an advantage in certain situations.

Vampires will be able to utilize various weapons in combat, from guns to knives to fiery axes. Players won't get very far just using their weapons, though; they'll need to hide, jump, climb and even stun other players to keep the upper ground. Using their unique vampire abilities - like teleportation, invisibility, and various types of magic - fans will be able to further manipulate the battlefield.

"In this bloodthirsty third-person action shooter set in the Vampire: The Masquerade universe, players will take to the streets of Prague for epic battles between ruthless vampire fighting to dominate the night armed with supernatural powers, weapons and their own cunning," Sharkmob said in a press release.

Players will be able to delve into the world of Vampire: The Masquerade - Bloodhunt on both Steam and PlayStation 5 platforms. Unfortunately, Vampire: The Masquerade - Bloodhunt will not be available on Xbox at the time of its release.

That's all players need to know before taking a bite out of Vampire: The Masquerade - Bloodhunt. Check back with us after the game's full release for further information, developer updates, and gameplay tips.
