Vampire: The Masquerade – Bloodhunt proves vampires are more fun with AK-47s

It’s 2022 and there’s a new Battle Royale on the field. I thought games had explored pretty much everything worth doing in the circle-shrinking genre, but then I started running up walls and drinking civilians up like juices in Vampire: The Masquerade – Bloodhunt. “This free-to-play Battle Royale is pretty good!” I say to my friends who respectfully will not download it to play with me.

Bloodhunt was launched on Steam in Early Access last year when I was not watching, but it came out in earnest last week. The vampire name will definitely throw fans off the original Bloodlines RPG from 2004. This is not it. Bloodhunt uses Vampire’s world as a vampire-to-vampire showdown with 45 players on the streets of Prague, and so far quite well.
