Dontnod Entertainment and Focus Home Interactive revealed today a new gameplay trailer for the upcoming action RPG Vampyr. You can check out the new cinematic trailer for the upcoming game in the player below.
The new video showcases the legends and tales of the mysterious protagonist for the world of the game, Dr. Jonathan Reid. The game is set during 1918 London during an epidemic of the Spanish Flu that has debilitated London’s alleys and promenades. Dr. Reid awakes after going home after serving in the Great War. However, there is now another deadly epidemic in vampirism. Reid considers his affliction a disease and tries to better understand and live with it. He also seeks to continue his life as a doctor and help those who have the flu.
The new trailer shows how there are whispers and rumors at night for the citizens of the world of the game. Each character has their own names, back stories and daily lives. For the gameplay, players will decide if they seek to shrug off Reid’s reputation or lay waste to London’s streets. Killing a citizen will affect London’s streets, such as causing shops to closes or kin to go missing. The act of killing is unavoidable at some point in the game. Also, a civilian can be killed or saved, but soon vampire hunters start to roam the streets, and the temptation to take their blood will grow.
Vampyr is due out next year (2017). The game will be available for PlayStation 4, Xbox One and Windows PC.
