“Square Enix Announces New Game For iOS Services: Bloodmasque


Square Enix today announced that its new vampire-hunting action RPG mobile game, Bloodmasque, will be available this summer on all iOS devices. To further enhance the eerie atmosphere of Bloodmasque, players can use their photos – headshots – when customizing their characters, allowing them to face the vampire threat head on.

Bloodmasque is powered by Unreal Technology, and the accompanying trailer demonstrates the game’s interactive character customization technology and gameplay footage.

In Bloodmasque, players take the role of hunters in vampire-ruled Paris during the late 19th century. As the dark night looms for mankind, hunters must fight the vampires’ insidious oppression and thwart their dark designs.

Bloodmasque allows players to snap a picture of themselves or use existing photos with their devices’ front-facing camera. The photos are then stylized to naturally fit the aesthetics of the game. As players prepare for battle, Bloodmasque allows them to optimize their party by choosing available characters that have been created by others. Together, they can unite to defeat the onslaught of the vampires.”
