Vampyr Is Free to Download for 24 Hours
Vampyr fans can currently download the game for free from the Epic Games Store. This freebie is part of their 15 Days of Free Games promo. The narrative-driven action RPG will be free of charge for only 24 hours. The promotion will end at 8am PT on Friday, December 24th.
Epic is giving away a game for free every day until December 30th. For today, that free title is Vampyr. It will have players waking up during a pandemic with powerful thirst for human blood. They will be playing as Dr. Jonathan Reid, who is a World War 1 veteran. He returns home to London, only to wake up in a mass grave.
“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,” Vampyr’s official description read. “All the while, London’s population crumbles under the pressure of a terrible disease.”
Fans of the game have compared it Bloodborne. It may not be as fast-paced as the latter, but its highly compelling narrative makes up for any difference. Reid somehow contracted vampirism during the Spanish flu. Reid’s principles as a medical doctor are pit against his desire to suck human blood. Furthermore, being the “city’s last hope to stop” the pandemic, he quickly learns that there is more to the pandemic than meets the eye.
Other titles that Epic gave away include Loop Hero, Neon Abyss, Mutant Year Zero: Road to Eden, Shenmue 3, Second Extinction, The Vanishing of Ethan Carter, and Remnant: From the Ashes.
In addition to 15 free games, Epic is also having an Epic Voucher promo. This gives players endless $10 discounts on eligible game purchases. Everyone with an Epic Games Store account will automatically get a $10 coupon, or its equivalent monetary value in other regions.
