DONTNOD’s latest project Vampyr launches webseries today
Hope it doesn't suck...
Vampyr Paris based developer, DONTNOD invites fans to their studio for a first insight into the creative process behind their next project Vampyr,
The first episode of what promises to be a four-part webseries spanning the next four weeks unveils exclusive gameplay footage of the upcoming action-RPG.
In Episode 1: Making Monsters, DONTNOD gives more information about Jonathan Reid, the doctor-turned-vampire that players will step into the shoes of in Vampyr. Freshly turned, Reid’s ‘condition’ unveils a dark new reality, thrusting him into a once-hidden society of wretched creatures like himself. Ancient Ekons plot from the shadows, terrifying Vulkods prowl the streets at night, and cursed Skals hide in the darkest places of the city.
Vampyr is set in 1918 London, with the city weakened by the recent World War I and ravaged by the Spanish Flu. This setting makes up an important part of Vampyr’s identity. The game explores the duality that torments Dr. Jonathan Reid, giving them the freedom to choose who to sacrifice and who to save. Every killing has consequences, and it’s up to players to balance their need to feed and grow stronger, with the rapidly deteriorating city of London.
Episode 1 is available today, with three more 5 minute episodes releasing weekly every Thursday.
Vampyr is due for release in Spring 2018 on PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC.
