Today, Dontnod Entertainment released a new story trailer for the upcoming dark role-playing game (RPG) Vampyr. The title is set in Britain during the lethal 1918 Spanish flu which devastated Europe.
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.
Doctor Jonathan Reid's condition unearths a dark new reality as well, thrusting him into a once-hidden society of cursed creatures like himself. Terrifying beings like the ancient Ekons plot from the shadows, while the heinous Vulkods prowl the streets at night. Lastly, the grotesque Skals hide in the darkest places of the city waiting for victims. These are just some of the challenges gamers can expect to face in this seemingly complex experience.
Vampyr should launch on Xbox One, PC, and PlayStation 4 on June 5, 2018. It's unclear if the game supports Xbox One X because the developer hasn't provided any details as of now. We'll keep you posted as soon as we know more about the project.
