You have awoken as a vampire. To survive, you need to regain your strength by hunting blood in nearby settlements. Rise to the top of an ever-changing open world full of mystery and raise your castle. Take control of the living land by gaining allies online.




Vampires have unique abilities. Vampires can equip up to eight vampire powers and up to seven abilities at once.
A total of 15 (16 if you count unarmed) weapon abilities are available, as well as 24 basic abilities, 5 travel abilities, 10 ultimate abilities, and 10 vampire powers.

Weapon Abilities

Depending on the type of weapon equipped, your vampire can learn up to three abilities, or techniques. Without a weapon, you can only use the Primary Attack ability.

Basic Abilities

A Basic Ability is a spell with a short cooldown and a variety of effects. The game starts with shadowbolt Shadowbolt and bloodrite Blood Rite, but you can change them anytime once you unlock new abilities. Defeating V Blood Carriers unlocks new basic abilities.

Travel Abilities

The veil of blood Veil Of Blood travel ability is unlocked by default for every Vampire. Defeating V Blood Carriers unlocks new travel abilities. Each travel ability provides mobility in the form of a dash, but each has its own unique effect.

Ultimate Abilities

Ultimate abilities have long cooldowns and are really powerful. Unlocking ultimate abilities requires slaying powerful V Blood Carriers, which are not unlocked by default.
