When you think of Vampire: The Masquerade, a battle royale game isn't exactly what comes to your mind. However, Swedish development house Sharkmob are merging the highly popular gaming genre along with an interesting and an all-new setting.
The game was announced earlier this week and it has piqued the interest of fans of the game and the battle royale genre alike. So, let's see how the Swedish developers have merged the seemingly different genres of games.
The game was teased via an intense action filled trailer
The trailer shows vampires leaping across rooftops and battling one another in the streets of a modern European city. They fire guns at each other and use explosive vampire powers to attack and defend themselves.
Towards the end of the trailer, we see an armoured figure with a sword and a shield, bearing the mark of the Vampire: The Masquerade's Second Inquisition, who then proceeds to attack the lead vampire.
As per the official game description: "Experience the next thrilling evolution of Battle Royale multiplayer action games set in the cult classic Vampire: The Masquerade universe where vampire sects are at war across the streets and rooftops of Prague. Choose your playstyle, go solo or together, battling rivals and the hostile Entity who’s hellbent on exterminating all vampires. Use your supernatural powers, weapons and blood to become stronger in order to hunt, fight and survive the night."
Basically, this is one of the most unique and refreshing battle royale games we have come across in a while. Battle Royale genre tends to be saturated with only a specific set type of games, but this one should be an interesting take on the genre.
