Vampyr from Life is Strange developer Dontnod Entertainment is a game I am personally looking forward to playing. The concept sounds promising so far and today, we have some great new screenshots for you.
The game is set in the 20th century London where you play the role of a Vampyr during a lethal Spanish Flu outbreak. The game has a very dark tone and I mean it is literally very dark in Vampyr, just see the screenshots below.
[Britain is] gripped by the lethal Spanish flu and the streets of London are crippled by disease, violence and fear. In a disorganised and ghostly city, those foolish, desperate, or unlucky enough to walk the streets lay prey to Britain’s most elusive predators: the vampires.
You will be playing the role of Jonathan E. Reid, a military surgeon who is now a Vampyr. You will take on various missions in the game and feed on people. Who you feed on will have an impact on the game’s narrative; similar to the way your choices made an impact in Life is Strange.
Absolutely all characters in the game are potential victims of your vampiric lust. Carefully study the habits of your next victim, his or her relationships with other characters, and set up your strategy to feed, unnoticed: seduce them, change their daily habits, or make sure they end up alone in a dark street.
Be careful who you choose to hunt, as they will be gone forever, and their death will impact in a meaningful way the world that surrounds you. Feeding on human blood will not just keep you ‘alive’; it will also unlock new vampiric powers to use.
Vampyr is intriguing but we won’t get to play it until next year. It will release on PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC.
