Bloodhunt Summer Update Patch Notes – July 14, 2022

TEAM DEATHMATCH (BETA)

Team Deathmatch (TDM) is an explosive 8 vs 8 mode where teams of duo squads fight for dominance in 5 arenas from the Prague map.

We think that this new mode is a great entry for old and new players wanting to get familiar with the deep gameplay that Bloodhunt offers, as it lets you get right back into the action more quickly. It also allows you to experiment more with weapons and powers compared to the Battle Royale mode, as you’re no longer limited to having one or two lives per match.

NEW SUMMER PASS

Our next update contains new vanity items where you can slay the summer in style! The nimble Summer Pass, holding over 100 different items, is available for purchase at a special low price point of 600 tokens.

New Bloodhunt Skins:

  • Unstable Assailant
  • Berserk Battle-Ax
  • The Four Hundred
  • Time Traveller
  • Kindred Kingpin
  • Vagabond
  • Serve, Flex
  • Do Not Cross
  • Main Character
  • Short Fuse

Certainly, there will be more for you to choose from in the store, but we wanted to pique your curiosity with some of the names.

NEW BODIES AND RIGS

Because we mentioned all the new cool cosmetics and fresh outfits to customize your vampire coming with the Summer Pass, we also need to mention our new streamlined process for getting these out to you. The decision to create this was not made easily and took a lot of time to achieve. Doing this also meant delaying any possibility to resolve lingering bugs, since we needed this new system to be implemented to be able to proceed to fix others.

BUG FIXES

  • Weapons get reloaded before the reload bar finishes loading completely and can be canceled mid-reload.
  • Fixed a bug that was causing some powers not to interrupt reloads, while others did. All powers will now interrupt reloading.
  • Traversal has been smoothened out which means less getting stuck while climbing on corners and overhangs, as well as climbing on steep angles.
  • Addressed several traversal-related desyncs.

QUALITY OF LIFE IMPROVEMENTS

  • We have updated the controller and added a plethora of settings for you to customize how you look, aim and turn. The deadzone has been changed from axial to being radial, and is now fully customizable as well.
  • We implemented changes to our Vampire rig, which not only speeds up our vanity item creation process but also enabled us to slightly improve the visual quality of the vampires.

All the Camarilla Caches now require a key to be opened. You will need to find this in Prague, adding a bit of challenge in finding the rarer weapons. This makes matches less predictable and requires a bit more exploration when it comes to finding the best weapons.

  • Ranked Mode rewards are now immediately unlocked on reaching the next rank. Additionally, we have reduced the required Ranked Points by 1000 points. More on this when Ranked launches again in the future!
  • The user interface has been updated to make the Archetype perks more prominent and easier to find. We have also added a pop-up in Elysium each time a player has unlocked a new Archetype perk.
  • The challenges screen has gotten an overhaul for both the daily and weekly challenges with new icons, better category separation, more in-depth progression per individual challenge as well as expiration dates and times.
  • The quests screen has also gotten an overhaul making it more user friendly.
  • PS5 now features a VSYNC option which can lead to smoother frame delivery as it reduces the chances of screen tearing.
  • The Melee hitboxes have been improved which will make it slightly easier to hit targets that are below you on slanted surfaces.

NEW AREAS AND OTHER NOTEWORTHY MAP CHANGES

Elysium

  • The Nosferatu clan space has expanded further. Enter if you dare!
  • With the addition of an elevator, the Ventrue area is now open if you feel that you are worthy.

The Elysium also has some new secrets. For example, you may encounter a new interactable character here. Those of you who are detail oriented may find what else is hidden.

Prague

  • The attic space of the Rudolfinum has been opened, which improves the flow when the match reaches its end in this area.
  • A train has arrived at the train station.

BALANCE CHANGES

Weapons

  • The Axe damage has been increased from 70 to 80
  • The Spiked Bat damage has been increased from 55 to 60

General

Ad
  • The regenerate/revive HP has been increased from 50 to 100.
  • Diablerie no longer breaks the Masquerade for improved game flow.

Archetypes

As the Enforcer exits Flesh of Marble, the character will play a brief transition animation during which the Enforcer is unable to attack. This transition gives players time to react and shifts Flesh of Marble to more of a defensive ability as originally intended. Additionally, you can now no longer perform any other actions except for reloading or switching weapons while under the effect of Flesh of Marble. This includes things such as committing diablerie and using consumables.

  • The Sirens’ Blinding Beaty damage has been increased from 20 to 50
  • The Vandals’ Earthshock damage has been decreased from 20-60 to 10-30
  • The Sewer Bomb no longer causes the thrower to be slowed down during the throw and the throw velocity has increased by 33%. Additionally, the time stuck in the animation has been decreased from 0.4s to 0.3s.

QUESTS

This update contains multiple new quests for you to complete. Additionally, we also have improved and restructured the UI which now will give you a clearer picture of the current active and completed quests along with expiry dates, progress bars and better challenge descriptors. All this in addition to a new quest indicator badge, progress pips and clearer viewable rewards for completing quests.

NEW MELEE WEAPONS

We added the Knife and the Crowbar to the game. These are two close-combat weapons are now spawned across the map. They provide more weapon variety, and their spawn chances lower the probability of encountering the other melee weapons. This allows us to balance them accordingly, making the blue melee weapons better bridge the gap versus the purple ones.
