Since it’s reveal back in January we’ve heard little of Vampyr but publisher Focus has decided it’s time to officially announce the next Dontnot title.
Having already kicked off Life is Strange, Dontnod’s next game will take players into the Spanish flu gripped dark streets of 20th century London. For some reason Britain is ridden with elusive vampire predators and you will take on the role of Jonathan E. Reid, a high-ranking military surgeon who’s been transformed into a vampire upon his return home from the frontline.
In true sinister vampire fashion, all characters you encounter could be your next victim as you undertake missions. Players will have to “study the habits of your next victim, his or her relationships with other characters” before tucking in for a bite to eat. It sounds like there will be a real focus on the characters you’ll encounter because disposing of characters will have consequences. According to Dontnod their demise will have a “meaningful” impact in the world.
As this is an RPG there will also be vampiric powers to unlock by feeding on human blood. Yum!
Vampyr is expected some time in 2017.
