Vampyr, the upcoming RPG where you control a vampire trying to fight against his own beast within, has gone Gold. DONTNOD Entertainment and Focus Home Interactive game is set to release in June 6 for PC, PS4 and Xbox One.
On the latest news about the game, the developers confirmed on Twitter there will only be one save slot per playthrough throughout the story, with the possibility of creating up to three campaigns. Players weren’t happy about the decision, and many were afraid of the possibility of saves getting corrupted in the middle of their playtime. As reported in COGConnected, the studio explained is important for them for choices to “have a real, meaningful impact.”
“Players do not manually control saves, beyond having three slots for three separate campaigns,” the spokesperson from DONTNOD continued. “This means that all decisions are permanent – players will need to think through their options carefully with no ‘safety net’ to fall back on!”

They also said that on a technical level, there are backup systems in place to avoid the issue of corrupted saves. For me, the fact that you won’t be able to go back from a decision will make for a very interesting experience. Something that got a bit lost in time, especially in games like these.
Earlier this month, we got a detailed glance over the vampiric abilities players will use in the game, including giant claws and impaling enemies, to name a few. You can see all the details in the official trailer, along with some details about the story in the video above.
Vampyr is setting to be one of the most promising RPGs of the year, and we are only weeks away from the official release on June 5. Make sure to visit the official site for more information, and don’t forget to follow both the developers and the publisher on Twitter.

There’s nothing quite like an RPG done well. Throw in a vampire and we’re looking at a classic.
