Focus Home Interactive
offers almost fifteen minutes of gameplay footage from the alpha version of Vampyr
, a role-playing game powered by Unreal Engine 4 and due to arrive in 2017, for PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC. Developed by Dontnod
(the studio behind Remember Me and Life is Strange), Vampyr is set in early 20th century Britain as the country is gripped by the lethal Spanish flu and the streets of London are crippled by disease, violence and fear. In a disorganized and ghostly city, those foolish, desperate, or unlucky enough to walk the streets lay prey to Britain's most elusive predators: the vampires. Emerging from the chaos, a tormented figure awakens. You are Jonathan E. Reid, a high-ranking military surgeon transformed into a vampire upon his return home from the frontline.
You will interact with a multitude of characters with their own identities and importance. You can accept and fulfill the missions they give you, but don't forget: sooner or later, you will have to feed, and make a difficult choice... who will be your prey? Absolutely all characters in the game are potential victims of your vampiric lust. You must be careful who you choose to hunt, as they will be gone forever, and their death will impact in a meaningful way the world that surrounds you. Feeding on human blood will not just keep you "alive"; it will also unlock new vampiric powers to use.
