The Vampire: The Masquerade - Bloodhunt system requirements have been updated once again. It still feels odd to type the words "battle royale" and "World of Darkness" in the same sentence but here I am and that's what I'm doing. Vampire: The Masquerade - Bloodhunt is a battle royale set in White Wolf's gothic-punk World of Darkness setting, due September 7 from developer Sharkmob.

You can see the original requirements (opens in new tab) on the Wayback Machine, and revised requirements were published after the closed alpha test. Now they've been revised again, so these are the latest specs direct from Bloodhunt's Steam page. The minimum RAM has dropped from 16 GB to 8 GB and other requirements have fallen as well. As you'd expect with a free-to-play game where you want as many people as possible to be able to play, Sharkmob are pushing Bloodhunt's requirements as low as possible.
