Bloodhunt's Early Access Ends Next Monday, Nov. 22, Launch Pushed Back To 2022
Extra time will give the dev team the chance to improve performance and address other feedback.
Players have been having a bloody good time in Sharkmob's Vampire: The Masquerade-themed battle royale Bloodhunt, but all good things must come to an end, even if only temporarily. The early access period for the game will terminate at 10:00 a.m. CET on November 22 -- that's 1:00 Pacific -- and the game will remain offline until its full launch on PC and PlayStation 5.
That was originally scheduled to take place in late 2021, but Sharkmob has decided to push the launch date ahead to early next year. That will give the dev team "the time needed to address the valuable feedback they have received" and help them figure out "where they want to apply even greater focus to meet the high standards that both they as developers and the players expect."
Key topics covered in the announcement include better performance, a focus on stopping cheaters, a better new user experience, less waiting for matches, and more cosmetics. At launch, players will also have a bevy of statistics at their disposal, along with "an improved competitive experience."
As of now, no more tokens can be purchased in the game, though ones you have can be spent up until the servers go offline on the 22nd. A "massive XP boost" will run until that time, and all unlocks and purchased items will be carried over to players' accounts when the full game launches.
