This week marked a brand new game entering the Battle Royale genre space, and one that has had fans pretty divided even since its initial reveal. But is it able to stand out amongst the crowd after so many have already come before and seemingly perfected the genre?
Despite virtually no advertizing up until its Early Access launch, Vampire The Masquerade: Bloodhunt has been able to pull in some decent player numbers. Who knows whether it will stay like that in the future, but that all depends on how players interact with it and what kind of changes the developers will make in response to player feedback.
Regardless, we want to know whether you’ve played it and what you think of it! Essentially, this is just a discussion about whether VTM Bloodhunt is different enough from other BR games to survive and entice new players, and what can be done if it hasn’t quite hit the mark.
Currently, Bloodhunt is sitting on a “Mixed” review score on Steam, but is actually close to reaching a “Mostly Positive” score soon. It seems that overall players are enjoying it, but there are certain issues that will need to be addressed. Thankfully, the game is still in Early Access, so we can expect a little roughness around the edges. It just depends on how Sharkmob chooses to handle it going forward.
What do you think? Have you played Vampire The Masquerade Bloodhunt? What did you think of it? Was it fun? What did you like and dislike? Is it a worthy addition to the Battle Royale genre? And will you be playing it again? Let’s debate!
