Bloodhunt’s Tremere Update Patch Notes are Here

Vampire the Masquerade Bloodhunt Tremere Update

Vampire: The Masquerade – Bloodhunt has a new update which, as confirmed by the patch notes, adds Clan Tremere and more.

Bloodhunt developer Sharkmob has been teasing the addition of Clan Tremere and, yesterday, confirmed their looming presence. They’ve now been patched into the game, letting you play as the spell-flinging vampire clan.

So just what can you do with Clan Tremere? Apart from host a moonlight magic act, that is. A little unusually, there’s only one Tremere class to play as, The Scholar. The other clans each have two, though it’s possible Sharkmob is going to add a second archtype later.

Tremere abilities include:

  • Levitation (the power has a limited duration)
  • Seeing where recently damaged enemies are hiding
  • Firing a blood lance which damages foes and heals the player

Those are some pretty cool abilities but we wouldn’t recommend having them storm in, guns blazing. Sharkmob has made it clear that they consider the Tremere a support class, not a tank. That’s certainly in line with the way they’re depicted in other games/media. Basically, they’re vampire wizards so don’t put them on the front line.

So what else does the patch change? You can check out the full patch notes here, but here are some of the notable changes/tweaks:

  • Bloodhunt supports Intel XeSS technology with third-party GPUs.
  • There’s a new gun range, for a little target practice.
  • The patch also adds a revamped (sorry) tutorial.
  • A new “Double Tap” pistol has been added to the game.
  • You can use the Nodist Volume pick-up to refill your powers.
  • There are two new team death match maps, cut down versions of the main map – Railway Station and Rudolfinium.

There are also a wealth of balancing tweaks and bug fixes. So, if you’ve been looking to deal out a little vampire magic, this update could be the opportunity you need.

Bloodhunt is free-to-play on PlayStation 5, PC (via Steam and the Epic Games Store) and GeForce Now.

He’ll tackle most genres – football titles aside – though he has a taste for games that that are post-apocalyptic, horror-oriented or thought provoking in nature.
