Vampyr, the upcoming action-RPG from DONTNOD Entertainment, has unveiled some of the combat abilities in a new gameplay video, along with information about how our actions will impact the world around us. The game will be available for PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One on June 5.
We all have been missing games with vampires on them, specially the ones who let you control one from the very beginning. Vampyr is being developed by the same folks who worked on Remember Me and Life is Strange, so you can already guess their take on these creatures will be different. It certainly seems like it. Set in early 20th century Britain during the lethal Spanish flu, a doctor named Jonathan Reid must try to examine and find a cure for its sickness, while also trying to fight against the urge of feeding his new starvation for blood.
In the latest gameplay video, we get to see the Doctor slowly becoming a monster, while a strange voice speaks to him. The combat abilities go from the basics such as using melee weapons or sucking blood from the neck of civilians, but it quickly becomes more complex: claws, teleportation, a deadly dash that can inflict damage to five enemies at once and enough power to hold off a werewolf in a fight.
The targets we choose will have an impact in the story, and players will get the possibility of examining them beforehand to decide if the world are going to miss them or if they would be liberating London from some scum. But there seems like there will be a lot of variety. For example, simply killing too many may cause an entire district to collapse.
Vampyr makes us asks the following question: How human can a Vampire be when he must feed? Luckily, we won’t have to wait that long to discover it when the game releases June on Playstation 4, Xbox One and PC.
