Dontnod talks about their upcoming game Vampyr, They state, that players will have full control over their character, they get to choose, either he is good or evil. Dontnod assures that, while you will be playing as a vampire but you won’t be forced to act as a blood thirsty psychopath.
One interesting question we want the player to ask themselves is, ‘Who am I going to kill and who am I going to spare?’ We have created a wide variety of citizen archetypes, very different archetypes, so you can really decide to play the game like Dexter, as he would do in the TV show. Or you can decide to do it the other way, be like Jack the Ripper and take lives and just feed and be in full possession of your supernatural skills.
You can navigate between these two extreme paths. There is no good or bad decision. We don’t want to influence you on your moral choices. It’s really up to you how you want to experience the game.
Art Director Gregory Szucs talked about Vampyr’s main protagonist,
Jonathan has a lot of trouble accepting the situation at first and will definitely approach it in a rational way, so he will conduct experiences and he will come to some conclusions. But then it is going to be up to the player, really. There are a lot of ways you can deal with the situation.
As we all know, Jonathan Reid has a rational and scientific mind, above that he has been to war. it will be interesting to see what approach do the players take, they can either be calm and composed, kill only when necessary or they can kill without remorse and evolve their vampire abilities.
Vampyr is expected to arrive this year for Windows PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.
