Following its reveal during Sony's PlayStation Showcase last year, Bloodhunt has been confirmed for a PS5 release on 27th April 2022. This is the Battle Royale title set in the Vampire: The Masquerade universe, which has been undergoing a number of test runs in early access up until now. It'll release as a free-to-play experience, with a Founders Ultimate Edition available on the PS Store containing 1,000 Tokens of virtual currency and more than 100 cosmetic items for £49.99/$59.99.
In Bloodhunt, you'll take to the streets of Prague as a vampire, with the sole task of being the last remaining player at the end of the match. To do so, you'll utilise supernatural powers, weapons, and abilities. Developer Sharkmob stresses there won't be any pay-to-win features. The game has been "created with a player focused mentality," a press release says.
The PS5's DualSense controller will also be part of the experience, with adaptive triggers and haptic feedback both taken advantage of as well as the Tempest 3D Audio engine. As for graphics modes, there's a 30 frames-per-second option that renders at 4K, and then another that doubles the frame rate and lowers the resolution to 1440p.
In a press release, producer David Sirland spoke of how the team has been implementing player feedback into the full game. "We’re delighted to be bringing the game to a new audience of PlayStation 5 players and are excited to be launching the full game this April in all its glory."
