General questions about the game:

What is the Core Vampire Crew (CVC)?
As of December 2022, we have decided to scale down the development team of Bloodhunt. The remaining team working on Bloodhunt is internally known as the Core Vampire Crew, or CVC. This smaller but dedicated team will continue to work on Bloodhunt as a passion project. You can read more about the state of the game and the CVC in the Bloodhunt Community Update.
What kind of game is Bloodhunt?
Bloodhunt is a third-person, free-to-play, battle royale game set in the Vampire: The Masquerade universe. You will battle players and AI enemies as you fight to become the last vampire standing in the Old Town of Prague.
What is the story behind Bloodhunt?

Long-smoldering tensions between rival vampire sects have erupted into open conflict across the rooftops and in the streets of Prague, while vampire hunters of the Second Inquisition capitalize on the chaos in an attempt to eradicate both factions.

You must rely on supernatural powers, ranged and melee weapons, and wits to dominate the night and restore the masquerade.
Is this really a Vampire: The Masquerade game? What about the masquerade?
Yes, it is – and the masquerade is a very important aspect of it, as it should be!

The entire match session revolves around killing all anarchs, to restore the masquerade. The masquerade also functions as an important game mechanic, where revealing your true nature to the civilians trapped within the lockdown area will expose your location to enemies.
Who is the developer and publisher of the game?
Bloodhunt is developed and published by Sharkmob, with studios in both London (UK) and Malmö (Sweden) which were founded by veteran developers with titles such as The Division, Far Cry, Battlefield, and Hitman under their belts.
When did Bloodhunt release?
Bloodhunt released on April 27, 2022 on both PlayStation®5 and PC.
What platforms is the game available on?

The full release of Bloodhunt is available on Steam and PS5.

How much does Bloodhunt cost?

The game is free to download and play. In-game cosmetic items will be available for optional purchase.
There are no pay-to-win progression mechanics.

What game modes are available in the game?

Bloodhunt currently features the following game modes: Solo Bloodhunt, Duos Battle Royale, Trios Battle Royale, and Trios Team Deathmatch. We also have a Solo Tutorial mode, where you can practice traversal and try out different weapons. Depending on the mode, up to 42 players can play together.

All modes might not be available at all times. Most of the modes have bot backfilling, which should allow for faster matchmaking times.

How can I contact Player Support?

If the chat is unavailable or if you experience long waiting times, you can also submit a request and our Support Agents will respond as soon as they are available.

We would also like to invite you to join our Discord channel. Sometimes you may be able to get the answers there through our great community.
How does matchmaking work in Bloodhunt?
Ideally, every match will involve players who share a similar skill level. With the addition of bot backfilling, certain modes (Solo and Duo) matches will also involve bots.

Currently, matchmaking is based on ELO in order to create fair matches and focus on regional servers. Players with mid-range and low ELO will face relatively more human players than bots. Since there are fewer players with an ELO of more than 2200, they will end up against each other.
