The Best and Worst of Vampyr
Dontnod’s Vampyr is one of those games that we have all been patiently twiddling our thumb and checking the time as we impatiently wait for its arrival. That day is upon us and it is time to step out of the shadows in waiting and sink our teeth into this interesting period piece. Whether you have been on the fence about picking up this third person vampire narrative or you were already sold way back with its announcement, we’ve put together a list of the three best – and worst – aspects of Vampyr so you know just what to expect when diving in. Check out our video list below to see our thoughts.
Vampyr is a third person RPG set during the Great War in London. Players will take control of Dr. Reid; a man turned vampire who must battle his new demons of bloodthirst while trying to help the sick and dying. Vampyr is a semi-open world with compact events and storytelling about an underground society of vampires and the doctors inner struggle to suppress his thirst. Any NPC on the game can be targeted and killed, however, the death of any character will have ramifications on the people and the borough itself. It should also be noted that Vampyr can be played in a nearly entirely passive manner with almost no killing, but drinking blood is the key aspect for leveling up Dr. Reid’s abilities.
Vampyr is available now on PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One. Are you one of the gamers who have been eagerly awaiting the chance to stalk London? Have you already picked up the game?
