Focus Home Interactive has released three new screenshots for Vampyr; DONTONOD’s new action RPG. Set in London, 1918, Vampyr promises to offer a unique and deeply immersive experience, and a strong and engaging narrative steeped in vampire mythology.
In Vampyr, players take control of Dr. Jonathan Reid, a newly formed vampire who is torn between the Hippocratic Oath he swore as a doctor, and the bloodthirsty need to kill due to the monster within.
“While London suffers from the Spanish Flu pandemic, your first reflex as a doctor would be to help and heal people… but it will be impossible for you to ignore your inner, violent, nature of Vampyr – first and foremost, you are a lethal predator.”
As a Vampyr, you have to accept your need to sacrifice people to survive. Feeding on people will be the basis of your character progression, as it will allow you to learn supernatural Vampyr powers and talents that will be useful in persuasion, locomotion, survivability, and combat.
In Vampyr, your decisions will have consequences. Killing one person will create a rippling effect on London’s ecosystem and you will have to live with both the repercussions and their death on your conscience.
Vampyr is planned for a 2017 release.
