Life is Strange developer Dontnod Entertainment and publisher Focus Home Interactive announced the release date for their upcoming narrative-driven action RPG game; Vampyr. Along with its release date announcement, both publisher and developer released its brand new E3 trailer along with details on its pre-order bonuses.
In the trailer release, we’ve showcased a first glimpse at The Ascalon Club, a society known for gathering the city’s richest vampires who live among the mortals throughout the city. Check out the trailer down below:
The pre-order inlcudes “The Hunters Heirlooms” DLC pack, consisting of two weapons and a new suit. The weapons featured are the Dragonbane “the sword of Paulinus Aurelianus, a mythical founder of the Brotherhood of Saint Paul Stole, known to many as the dragon hunter”, next is the Baker, “The pistol of Carl Eldritch, second leader of the Guard of Priwen, who has taken oath to hunt down every last vampire” . Now the suit includes a Dark Physician suit, which is said to be “perfect for a vampire doctor who must travel discretely through London town under pouring rain or in the biting of the night”
We only know little of the plot at this point, from what we know you play as a newly-turned vampire named Dr. Johnathan Reid, a doctor who’s looking throughout London among its ill-plagued citizens. The game will give you the option to either embrace your monster side or face against vampires, be that hunters, Skal, or other monstrosities to fill your everlasting quench of thirst.
A core concept of the game is said to be the duality of Dr. Reid being both a vampire and doctor and his struggle to find its cure and humanity. Throughout the game, any citizen killed will affect the town’s safety, from shop closures to missing kin, but most importantly any person you kill, and how is entirely up to you, however with consequences looming. Every civilian in the game can be saved or killed, each with their own name, back story, and daily lives. The game has been confirmed to contain multiple endings, one without killing a single person. As stated before, the decisions you make in the game will largely impact the rest of the game’s town citizens and progress—this is something the developers are psyched to introduce furthermore at next week’s E3 event.
Vampyr launches this November for PS4, Xbox One, and PC.
