Vampyr celebrates release next week with bloodthirsty Launch Trailer! Vampyr, the narrative-driven action-RPG from DONTNOD Entertainment, releases next week – take control of newly-turned vampire Dr. Jonathan Reid from Tuesday, June 5th, on PlayStation®4. Today, prepare to stalk or save the streets of 1918 London with Vampyr’s Launch Trailer! In Vampyr you play as Dr. Jonathan Reid, a famous surgeon and blood transfusion specialist freshly 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 citizen in Vampyr’s London 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. Deadly encounters plague the doctor’s journey, and each citizen offers a tempting source of power… but there will be consequences.
Each of the four main districts have health gauges linked with the number of living, dead and sick citizens. By feeding sparingly and keeping the populace healthy with crafted medicines, balance can be maintained. However, if the health gauge drops too low, the district will be lost to supernatural creatures along with every quest, shop, and citizen that once lived there. If every district of London falls, the game can still be played to completion, though with an outcome that suits such recklessness. Your actions will save or doom London.
