The Victorian era is recognized as a gold mine of dark and beautiful opportunity for the gaming genre because everybody knows that the Victorian era is dark, spooky, and filled with Werewolves and Vampires. Or Vampyr in this case, the new big Role Playing Project developed by Dontnod Entertainment, and published by Focus Home Entertainment.
Vampyr takes place in London of 1918 during a terrible flu. The main character is a Vampire doctor by the name of Dr. Jonathan Reid. Being a vampire, Reid must survive against Vampire hunters and monsters alike. During this time Reid must also make sure to feed, but keep in mind that a main selling point to Vampyr is that lives have meaning and “every life you take away will have consequences for the city and the people around them.”
See that guy? Probably had a wife and kids that are now going to die because he is dead.
Every named citizen has a complex story about them and may not be as evil as they let on to be, but at the end of the day, blood is blood.
Reid needs to eat, so someone has to die, so Reid can level up and get more powerful, as well as loot the coffers off their victims.
Vampyr is scheduled to come out in November of this year for the PS4, XBOX One, and PC.
