Vampire: The Masquerade – Bloodhunt has finally left Early Access and is now available on PC and PS5. Developer Sharkmob AB has included a crossplay option, allowing people on both platforms to play together. Halo Infinite fans who want crossplay disabled can only look on in jealousy, as Bloodhunt players on console can disable crossplay on PS5.
Bloodhunt is a new battle royale that’s set in the world of the Vampire: The Masquerade tabletop game. In this world, vampires hide among humans and keep their existence a secret from the world at large. The mortals of the world may soon learn the truth about vampires, as a battle is about to kick off in Prague between the Anarch and the Camarilla factions, with guns and blades being used in street fights. Meanwhile, the Second Inquisition has dispatched soldiers to the city, unleashing a red gas that consumes the flesh of the undead.
Bloodhunt has received positive reviews in the past, but many of these were for the PC version. Bloodhunt is now also available on PS5, giving console players a chance to hunt their fellow vampires. The PS5 players will automatically be set up for crossplay with PC players, and they have to dig into the menus to switch it off.
In the PS5 version of Bloodhunt, pressing the Options button and holding the Options button brings up two different menus. The player needs to hold the Options button to bring up three choices, one of which is the Settings menu. The “Enable Crossplay” option is found under the Gameplay and General tags and is bottom of the list. Pressing the Options button brings up the in-game menu, where the player can customize their characters, switch archetypes, and interact with Bloodhunt‘s Battle Pass when it goes live. It bears mentioning that most of the players in Bloodhunt at the moment are on PC, so there are long waits to get into matches when only playing with the PS5 crowd.
The reason Halo Infinite players on Xbox consoles want crossplay disabled is that cheating is rampant on the PC platform and it has spoiled the experience for many players. This isn’t an issue on consoles, as cheaters can’t implement hacks into these versions of the game. The other issue is that keyboard and mouse players have a speed and accuracy advantage over controller users, though there are Call of Duty players who would disagree. Shutting off crossplay in Bloodhunt will ensure that no one is cheating and that everyone has a level playing field, so it may be in a player’s best interest to do so.
