Vampire: The Masquerade Blood Hunt (2021) is a free-to-play battle royale game set in the streets and on the rooftops of Prague as war breaks out between the vampire sects. In teams or solo, you take the role of a vampire battling opponents and other enemies trying to exterminate vampires.

Play involves using ranged, melee weapons, and vampire powers to defeat other players. The twist is that you must also conceal your vampire identity from humans. If you are spotted the game shows where you are to all the other players. Along with this, there's also a gas cloud that slowly shrinks the play area.

The city location distinguishes itself by offering more verticality than other battle royal games. You have loads of climbing and swinging around, which enables you to traverse the world quickly. It also offers more reasons to explore than other games. You need to hunt and find items to upgrade and power up your character.

As you progress and feed on the blood of other players you gain more power and supernatural abilities. Each clan has unique play styles and abilities. Some can turn invisible, others can set traps while others are better at combat.

There have been other versions of the game that weren't focused on battle royale:

Rated PEGI 18 for extreme violence. The gameplay features strong and realistic-looking violence, involving the use of firearms, bladed weapons and hand-to-hand combat. Violence can result in blood sprays, the quantity of which depends upon the weapon being used. Enemy characters disintegrate, leaving behind items that can be collected. When the player's character is damaged, they fall to the floor and either regenerate or are revived by team members in multiplayer mode. Cutscenes involve more graphic violence, including a vampire attacking a male character, resulting in blood splatter and crunching noises as the vampire feeds. When the vampire notices a cross on the victim's neck, she rips the flesh and muscle from his neck, causing pain, injury and blood loss. The game also includes the use of strong language ('*!@?*').

Vampire: The Masquerade - Shadows of New York is rated PEGI 16 for use of strong language. This game includes use of strong language ('*!@?*', *!@?*', '*!@?*'), as well as milder bad language including '*!@?*', 'dick', '*!@?*', '*!@?*', 'screw', '*!@?*', '*!@?*' and 'goddamn'.
