The Aesthetics of the New Trailer Give Off Some Serious ‘Bloodborne’ Vibes!
A new trailer for Vampyr, a third-person vampire RPG set in 20th century London, has arrived and it shows off even more fast-paced and bloody gameplay! You can view the trailer below!
The protagonist of Vampyr is a World War 1 veteran and doctor named Jonathan Reid who returns home to England after serving in the war. Reid mysteriously gets turned into a vampire after arriving home and throughout the story Reid will try to find out why he was turned into a vampire and by whom.
Reid also has to deal with a rampant flu epidemic that is ravaging the city of London.
Since Vampyr is an RPG, that means there’s an upgrade system. In order to gain new combat skills, Reid will need to use the blood of his victims and the deaths of certain people that Reid chooses the kill can have a big impact on the game’s world.
“In Vampyr, the greatest source of XP to learn and enhance abilities comes from the blood of London’s citizens, who Dr. Jonathan Reid has set out to save from the epidemic sweeping through the city,” an official press release read. “The question is less ‘Do I kill?’ than ‘Who do I kill?'”.
“Investigating citizens’ lives will allow Reid to decide who is more ‘deserving’ of sacrifice – or he can simply give in to his hunger and treat the mortals as blood bags,” the press release continued. “Either way, killing certain citizens will have a greater impact on the local ecosystem than others, while simply killing too many may cause an entire district to collapse.”
Vampyr will be out on June 5th for the PC, Xbox One and PS4.
