Dontnod Entertainment and Focus Home Interactive shared today some new screenshots for the upcoming RPG Vampyr. You can check out the new images of the game’s combat in the gallery below. Click on the thumbnails to see the full-size images.
The game will be an action-RPG and will feature combat on the flu-ridden streets of London in 1918. Players take the role of Jonathan Reid, a doctor who has become a vampire who looks to discover the truth behind his new affliction.
Reid will have both conventional melee and ranged weaponry for his combat in the game. He will be able to attack and dodge foes to fill up his Blood Gauge which can then unleash powerful vampire attacks. This includes impaling enemies on a spike, to draining them of blood at a distance, as Jonathan’s Blood Gauge fills during a combat situation, his Vampire affliction will start to overtake his more human side, unleashing destructive spells and abilities against those who try to stop him.
For the sake of the combat system, the game will have a non-linear skill tree will unlock through experience gained new, more powerful attacks and abilities. Jonathan is able to equip these abilities in any order, effectively allowing players to create their own archetypes to match their play-styles. Play aggressively and deal greater damage, or more securely, focusing on crowd-control and keeping enemies at bay. Skills can be evolved two different ways. There are skills like Spring, which is a skill that allows gamers to rush instantly to a distant enemy. This skill can be developed to either deal area-of-effect damage or grant temporary invincibility.
Vampyr arrives later next year. The game will be available for PS4, Xbox One, and PC.
