Creatures of the night, rejoice! The early access for Vampire: The Masquerade Bloodhunt on PC is now underway, and Sharkmob invites everyone to join in on the nocturnal bloodletting.

The first phase of the test will involve "a bit of network testing," according to Sharkmob. That will let the team pinpoint potential problems, now that there are no limits on how many people can play. That period will run for one week, until September 14, after which the servers will go down for about a day so they can be improved to handle whatever issues have cropped up.

In our initial coverage, we described Bloodhunt as a battle royale title that would "offer solo or team play as players take on each other and 'the hostile Entity who's hellbent on exterminating all vampires.' A wide range of powers and weapons will be available, and Sharkmob has confirmed that the game's action will take place in third-person." Our playtime in the previous closed alpha confirmed all these details, apart from team play, which is possibly an addition in this beta.

Sharkmob said that there's no specified end date for the Bloodhunt open beta -- which, to us, means that the game has effectively launched, especially if there's a functioning cash shop within it. You can learn more about the Bloodhunt "open beta," including system requirements for the game, in the announcement on its Steam page.
