Hello PlayStation gamers! Thank you for the warm welcome you gave us when we announced the arrival of Bloodhunt on PlayStation 5. We can now announce that Bloodhunt will be released on April 27!
Since our last chat, we’ve been working hard to create a great experience for you, so today we want to share some details about the PS5 release that we’re sure you’ll be excited about.
Excellent performance without compromise
Bloodhunt features fast and frenetic multiplayer combat with an emphasis on agility. With the power of the PS5, we were able to aim for our target of 60 frames per second, even in the most intense moments of the battle. Above all, you will fight to dominate the night in a highly detailed interpretation of Prague. Choose quality mode, for the best quality rendering in 4K at 30 fps, or performance mode, to experience Bloodhunt at 60 fps rendered in 1440P.
Our vision was to create as faithful a representation of Prague as possible. Being able to achieve this of course requires a lot of attention to detail. Therefore, we sent our photogrammetry team to the Czech Republic, to find real assets that are now replicated in-game. We took over 10,000 photos and scanned real objects, all unique to Prague, such as two statues massive: the memorial of Jan Hus and the statue of Charles IV, located on the Křižovnické square. When converted into the game, this resulted in thousands of unique textures and assets, bringing the details of the city to life with an authentic touch.
We’re incredibly happy with how the final game looks on the PS5.
Immersive audio technology
Bloodhunt is set in modern Prague, a city with many monuments, narrow streets and tall buildings, so when it comes to sound, we had a lot to consider. Especially when you have access to high-end headphones like the PS5 Pulse 3D headset.
With an expansive soundscape, Bloodhunt’s sound is vital as it allows you to identify nearby threats or the direction bullets are being fired from. In this way, 3D audio helps you make strategic decisions on how to outsmart your opponents.
PlayStation Tempest 3D Audio technology also allows us to highlight one of Bloodhunt’s most unique features: verticality. PS Tempest 3D Audio technology improves the possibilities of audio spatialization, allowing you to locate enemies more precisely than ever, even on a vertical axis.
Whether your enemies are firing from rooftops or an overhead tower crane, you’ll be able to pinpoint their location more accurately. When hunting through the rainy streets of Prague, pinpointing enemy locations through audio has never been easier.
Thrilling battle at your fingertips
The DualSense wireless controller features really allowed us to take Bloodhunt’s fast and visceral gameplay to the next level of immersion, and we can’t wait for you to try it out.
The DualSense controller’s adaptive triggers and vibrations allow us to truly make you feel the brunt of the battle as you feel the impact of every powerful attack and weapon. For example, shotguns have a heavy kick and trigger pull, while submachine guns can be kicked easier but with a more intense jerk.
The controller light also guides you through the game. It lights up depending on your team color or when you’re stalked by your opponents and therefore blood stalked, so keep an eye on it.
Additionally, the DualSense controller speaker will bring immersion up a notch with high fidelity sounds for consumables or when feeding mortals.
With Bloodhunt, we sought to create an engaging experience both visually and from a game design perspective, without compromising on quality. At the same time, it is important to us that the game is freely accessible to a wide audience.
Something different, something special
Bloodhunt is free to play and will be available for free on PS5. For those of you looking for something special to prepare for battle, we have a pre-order offer for an Ultimate Founder’s Edition of the game that includes an abundance of fantastic cosmetics and 1,000 Tokens, our in-game currency.
