This is the first E3 2017 trailer that I’ve had the pleasure of seeing thus far, and damn if it doesn’t kick of this year’s expo with a bang (yeah, I understand that the actual expo is still several days away).
DONTNOD won my heart in 2015 with the phenomenal Life is Strange, so you’d better believe that I’m watching Vampyr with a close eye, and along with the just revealed three minute long E3 trailer for the game, the company has also announced that Vampyr will launch for PS4, Xbox One, and PC this November – I thought that it would be much further away than that.
In Vampyr, you are Dr. Jonathan Reid, a famous surgeon home from the Great War and recently turned into a vampire against your will. As a doctor, you have taken an oath to save lives and take care of the sick; as a vampire, you are cursed to hunt those you vowed to heal.
To survive against deadly foes roaming the streets – vampire hunters, undead Skal and other monstrosities – you will need to choose which civilians to feed on, so you can grow stronger and evolve your vampiric abilities. Use your unholy powers to manipulate and delve into the lives of those around you – but be prepared to live with the consequences of your actions. A web of interconnected citizens with unique lives and relationships react to your decisions, and killing just one may cause the downfall of an entire city district. Your actions will save or doom London.
Take a look at the new trailer below, and be sure to let us know what you think!
