Vampyr Reveals E3 Trailer and November 2017 Release Window
June 8, 2017 - DontNod Entertainment’s upcoming action-RPG Vampyr today unveils its E3 trailer and draws you deep into the heart of a flu-stricken 1918 London. Set out on three minutes of uncut footage through the city’s dark alleys, deadly underground passages, and corrupt neighborhoods. Get a first glimpse at The Ascalon Club, a society formed from the richest vampires, unbeknownst to the mortals.
In Vampyr, you are Dr. Jonathan Reid, a famous surgeon home from the Great War and recently turned into a vampire against your will. As a doctor, you have taken an oath to save lives and take care of the sick; as a vampire, you are cursed to hunt those you vowed to heal.
To survive against deadly foes roaming the streets – vampire hunters, undead Skal and other monstrosities – you will need to choose which civilians to feed on, so you can grow stronger and evolve your vampiric abilities. Use your unholy powers to manipulate and delve into the lives of those around you – but be prepared to live with the consequences of your actions. A web of interconnected citizens with unique lives and relationships react to your decisions, and killing just one may cause the downfall of an entire city district. Your actions will save or doom London.
Vampyr releases November 2017 on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC. Pre-orders are now open.
Prowl the disease ridden streets in Vampyr - a darkly atmospheric action RPG from the studio behind Remember Me and Life is Strange, developed using Unreal Engine 4. Set in early 20th century Britain during a bout of the lethal Spanish flu, the streets of London are crippled by disease, violence, and fear. In a completely disorganized and ghostly city, those who are either fools, desperate, or unlucky enough to walk the streets lay prey to Britain’s most elusive predators: the Vampires. Emerging from the chaos, a tormented figure awakes; as the player you determine how to harness your new powers, by specializing in deadly, versatile RPG skill trees that change the way you play. As a doctor recently turned into a Vampire, you try to understand your new affliction. Your quest of intuition, discoveries, and struggles will be filled with death and drama as you attempt to stem the irrepressible thirst that constantly drives you to take human lives. As you cling to what remains of your humanity, your decisions will ultimately shape the fate of your hero while searching for answers in the coughing, foggy aftermath of the Spanish Flu.
