Today, Dontnod Entertainment announced a significant content update coming to Vampyr later this summer on Xbox One and other platforms. The patch will introduce two new difficulty modes which should enhance replayability. Aside from a slew of optimizations, the update will introduce a "Story Mode" that makes combat much easier so that players can enjoy the plot. A new "Hard Mode" should be the ultimate challenge for those who love punishing games. Players will receive less experience from killing enemies, forcing them to murder citizens to level up.
The Hard Mode should address the complaint that there was no pressure to kill civilians in the game. Apart from that, here's hoping that the optimizations make the title run better on Xbox One and Xbox One X. We'll keep you posted as soon as we receive a concrete release date.
Vampyr is set in Britain during the lethal 1918 Spanish flu which devastated the region. In a completely disorganized and ghostly city, those who are unlucky enough to walk the streets at night become prey to vampires. You step into the shoes of a doctor who has recently turned into a vampire. The game is as much about staying alive by hunting as it is about understanding your new affliction. It's definitely a new take on the genre because your ultimate goal appears to be to stop the irrepressible thirst that constantly drives you to kill.
