The free battle royale Vampire The Masquerade Blood Hunt Coming soon to PC and PS5, its crossplay status is good news for fans of cross-platform multiplayer.
Although the game is free, there is a Founder’s Edition that you can purchase and pre-order PSN shop. It costs £44.99 and comes with a range of bonuses including cosmetics and in-game items.
But regardless of whether you want to buy or play for free, the ability to play with friends on another platform remains the same.
Does Vampire the Masquerade Bloodhunt offer cross-platform multiplayer?
Vampire the Masquerade Bloodhunt is crossplay between PC and PS5 and therefore has cross-platform multiplayer.
Confirmation of this comes courtesy of the game official website. However, there are technical details that you should know.
As pointed out by Sharkmob, the cross-platform multiplayer only takes place when you enter the Prague map. This is where the battles begin and this is where you meet players from PS5 and PC via steam once a game starts.
The Elysium is the game lobby and this is not crossplay as it is platform specific. It’s mentioned that you can’t group up with friends on different systems in the Elysium lobby, but you can encounter them after entering the Prague.
Cross-progression and deactivation
Unfortunately there is no cross progression for Vampire the Masquerade Bloodhunt on PS5 or PC.
The game’s website specifically states that your Sharkmob account can be used on either system, but each progression is individual. This affects aspects such as trophies, unlocked items and rewards, purchased cosmetics, and more.
Finally, crossplay and cross-platform multiplayer can only be disabled on PS5. The option to disable will be available in the options menu, and it says only Sony players will have the choice “to be compliant with technical regulations and requirements”.
