Bring Your Own Blood is inspired by the movie's story and has players following Dracula's commands as Renfield. The single-player adventure game has "one-touch" gameplay and "frenetic, room-based action" as part of what Skybound calls a roguelite experience. The game has "dozens" of enemies, multiple stages, numerous bosses, and a range of weapons.

More content will come to Bring Your Own Blood throughout the summer.

As for the movie, Renfield stars Cage as Dracula and Hoult as Renfield. Renfield is trying to break free of Dracula to make a life of his own, but that's proving hard to do because the two are connected by dark magic.

Renfield is Universal's newest monster adaption and another that reinvents the classic monster movie after 2020's Invisible Man starring Elizabeth Moss and Oliver Jackson-Cohen. In addition to Cage and Hoult, Renfield stars Akwafina, Ben Schwartz, Shohreh Aghdashloo, Brandon Scott Jones, and Jenna Kanell.

Renfield arrives in theaters on April 14, 2023.
