Sharkmob has announced that the upcoming vampire battle royale, Vampire The Masquerade Bloodhunt release date as September 7, 2021. The game will launch in early access, allowing players the opportunity to help develop and shape up the outcome of the game.
The news of the Vampire The Masquerade Bloodhunt launch came from the Gamescom 2021 Opening Night Live showcase. The Bloodhunt showed a more in-depth look at the gameplay, featuring vampire superpowers, parkour, gunplay and more in the Czech city.
Vampire The Masquerade Bloodhunt Release Date
As mentioned the Vampire the Masquerade Bloodhunt release date is set for September 7. Most games with a 2021 release date compete for the October release window, so Vampire the Masquerade Bloodhunt drops in a relatively uncompetitive month.
The launch of Vampire The Masquerade Bloodhunt come switch an early access testing period beginning September 7 and ends on September 13. The servers will go down for a one-day maintenance and then will kick off again with Season 0 and a battle pass.
As it stands, the game is only available on Steam and does not yet have a price tag. The game is going free-to-play, but we know the game is going to have paid DLC and skins like most other battle royale titles.
Vampire The Masquerade Bloodhunt Battlepass
Once the first week of Vampire the Masquerade Bloodhunt concludes, the servers will go offline for maintenance. After that, the servers will come back online with the first-ever Vampire The Masquerade Bloodhunt Battlepass. The first battle pass will feature your standard battle royale themed battlepass, equipped with characters skins, character customization, emotes, along with premium currencies and experience boosts for your account. Looking at the battlepass reveal during the Future Games Show at Gamescom 2021, it appears there is a paid skip feature, allowing you cto complete all 100 levels of the battlepass.

Vampire The Masquerade Bloodhunt Gameplay
The Gamescom 2021 reveal of the Vampire The Masquerade Bloodhunt early access launch announcement was accompanied by a gameplay trailer. The trailer showed off a vampire clan in its romantic, virile and downright violent vampire clans. Players take control of vampires and use supernatural powers to glide through the air, teleport and slay their enemies with a plethora of guns and vampire bity-ness you would expect from the Bram Stoker Dracula vampire themes you have come to expect.
The unfortunate news is that plenty of the gameplay update happened off-screen. The vampires you play as got more content on them on the developer’s official website than in the gameplay trailer.
But what we can gather is that Vampire the Masquerade Bloodhunt is a unique blend of Battle Royale gameplay. We can see gunplay similar to Fortnite while offering magic and powers similar to Spellbreak. If it seems like your kind of game, get on that Steam page and wishlist the game. Remember, the Vampire The Masquerade Bloodhunt release date is September 7.
