Announced via a short teaser, Vampire: The Masquerade’s own take on battle royale is the first major title from studio Sharkmob.

The long-awaited sequel to Vampire: The Masquerade – Bloodlines is still in development for a 2021 release, but it’s now not the only title based on the tabletop game in the works.

While it has no official name yet, a battle royale set within the Vampire: The Masquerade universe has been announced and is aiming to release in the second half of 2021 for unspecified platforms.

The project was unveiled via a short YouTube teaser and sees vampires duking it out on the streets and rooftops of Prague, armed with bladed weapons and – the classic vampire staple – guns.

This is studio Sharkmob’s first major project, which it describes as ‘the next thrilling evolution of battle royale multiplayer action games.’

Despite the focus on weaponry in the teaser, Sharkmob does state that players will have access to supernatural powers as well.

It also mentions that, aside from other players, you’ll need to fight against something called The Entity, which seeks to exterminate all vampires.

Whether The Entity is a computer controlled opponent or a playable faction is unknown. Perhaps that’s what the armoured figure from the end of the teaser is.

Sharkmob’s website mentions that the studio has two other projects in development as well, which it promises are ‘highly ambitious, AAA quality products.’

As for Bloodlines 2, there is some understandable concern from fans that it’s going through troubled times.

In August its creative director and narrative lead were both unexpectedly fired from the project, with no explanation, while narrative designer Cara Ellison also left last month.
