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.
