Vampyr Delivers Brooding and Bloodsucking in a Dramatic Launch Trailer


Time to sharpen up your fangs, because Vampyr, the new bloodsucking adventure from Remember Me and Life is Strange developer DONTNOD, is almost here. As such, we have a new Vampyr launch trailer, which reintroduces us to the game’s version of London and main character Dr. Jonathan Reid. Of course, it also serves up plenty of neck chomping. Check it out, below.

Here’s a reminder of what Vampyr is all about:

In Vampyr you play as Dr. Jonathan Reid, a famous surgeon and blood transfusion specialist turned into a vampire after arriving back in his home city of London following the Great War. A man of logic and science, Reid’s firm beliefs are turned inside-out upon awakening to a once-hidden world of secret societies, ungodly creatures and ancient orders set upon ending his existence. All the while, London’s population crumbles under the pressure of a terrible disease – and Dr. Reid may be the city’s last hope to stop it.

Every one of the game's citizens are part of an interconnected social web, and the fate of one citizen in a social circle will impact the everyday life of the others, as well as the direction of the narrative. Each citizen has their own story, life and personal quests – and every last one can be spared or sacrificed in Reid’s quest. Reid is a vampire, and the fastest way to evolve and unlock new supernatural abilities for combat is by drinking the blood of the living. In Vampyr, it’s not “Do I kill?” but “Who do I kill?”. Each citizen offers a tempting source of power…but there will be consequences.

You can check out 55 minutes of uncut Vampyr gameplay, right here. DONTNOD will be showing off even more of the game via a Twitch steam on June 4.

Vampyr creeps onto PC, Xbox One, and PS4 on June 5.
