DONTNOD Entertainment’s narrative-driven action-RPG Vampyr has arrived, throwing you into the shoes of a newly turned vampire with moral dilemmas and a bloodlust that must be quenched. Can you resist a taste of this new release?
Set in 1918 London, following the Great War, the fate of the city is in the hands of Dr. Jonathan Reid, a famous surgeon and blood transfusion specialist coming to terms with new desires as a vampire. He’s been enlightened to the once-hidden world of ungodly creatures and secret societies that are now set on ending his existence. Dr. Reid must attempt to fight off these beings and the urge to feast on the many citizens he wishes to save – the lives of whom could be vitally important to the district they reside in. Each citizen has their own story to tell, life to live and personal quests to fulfil, and losing just one key member of an area could see the whole place crumble in no time.
There are ulterior motives of course, as when you realise the battle to avoid the thirst for blood is pointless, you need to make sure there are disposable people that can be sacrificed for the greater good. It won’t take long until you stop questioning the kill and instead focus on priming the nobodies for a bit of bloodsucking.
The fate of London rests upon your shoulders, so if you’re up to the task, head on over to the Microsoft Store and purchase Vampyr for £49.99 on Xbox One right now. It’s also available for PlayStation 4 and PC gamers too via their respective stores. There’s a bit of DLC to buy as well in the form of the Hunters Heirlooms DLC, which includes weapons and a dark suit for £2.39. Keep an eye out for our review in the near future to help make up your mind about becoming the Vampyr.
