Vampires have been off the scene for a while thanks to that unfortunate business with the shiny dudes in Twilight. It’s been an even longer time since we got an actual good vampire game. Vampyr looks to change that by putting you into the boots of an actual badass vamp in the story trailer for Vampyr.
Prowl the disease-ridden streets in Vampyr – a darkly atmospheric action RPG from the studio behind ‘Remember Me’ and ‘Life is Strange’, developed using Unreal Engine 4. Set in early 20th century Britain during a bout of the lethal Spanish flu, the streets of London are crippled by disease, violence and fear. In a completely disorganized and ghostly city, those who are either fools, desperate, or unlucky enough to walk the streets lay prey to Britain’s most elusive predators: The Vampires. Emerging from the chaos, a tormented figure awakes; as the player, it is you who determines how to harness your new powers, by specializing in deadly, versatile RPG skill-trees that change the way you play. As a doctor recently turned into a Vampire, you try to understand your new affliction. Your quest of intuition, discoveries and struggles, will be filled with death and drama, while your attempt to stem the irrepressible thirst that constantly drives you to take human lives. As you cling to what remains of your humanity, your decisions will ultimately shape the fate of your hero while searching for answers in the coughing, foggy aftermath of the Spanish Flu.
Sounds and looks great to us. What do you guys think? Ready to take on the role of a vamp unleashed in London?
Vampyr drops June 5 on Playstation 4, Xbox One and PC.
