Action RPG Vampyr Up to 30 Hours Long

Published

 on

Dontnod Entertainment has confirmed the length of its action role-playing game Vampyr.

In a Reddit AMA session, game director Philippe Moreau stated that the game will take “15 to 30 hours depending on your playstyle.” Community manager Toby Palm elaborated, stating that “if you choose to be picky with who you feed on, and delve into the side content, you will have a far lengthier experience.”

Players have a significant amount of freedom in the game, as narrative director Stephane Beauverger stated:

 In Vampyr, there is an inevitable amount of violence […] but, when it comes to the level of violence [protagonist Jonathan Reid] wants to inflict to the world, the player is free to take the lives of all the Citizens in the game (there are 60 of them), or try to spare them all. It’s up to you, really.

The developer also confirmed that the game does not feature a New Game Plus mode.

OnlySP’s Damien Lawardorn described Vampyr as “enjoyable and engaging,” but noted that “the apparent lack of courage in the strength of its more unusual ideas is slightly disheartening.”

Telltale Games Catalog to be Removed From GOG Next Week

Published

Telltale

Fans of the late developer Telltale Games should hurry to pick up its games quick, as PC players may not be able to buy the titles for much longer.

Digital retailer GOG has announced that Telltale’s game will be listed from the store’s website come May 27.

The Wolf Among Us, Tales from the Borderlands, and Batman: The Enemy Within are just a few of the titles that will fall victim to the delisting. Tales from the Borderlands specifically was already removed from Steam sometime this week.

Fans of Telltale’s Borderlands spin-off have a sliver of hope however, as 2K says that it is working to bring the title back to digital platforms as soon as it can. A 2K spokesperson confirmed the news to Eurogamer.

“We are working to get Tales from the Borderlands back up on digital storefronts as soon as possible. All prior digital purchases of the game will of course still be honoured and supported.”

There is no word on if the same will happen over at Steam or other digital retailers, but fans should assume the worst. The internet-wide delisting is a result of Telltale’s demise late last year.

Though much of the Telltale catalog will be affected, its most influential title, The Walking Dead, will still be made available through the Epic Games Store.

Those who already own any of the games delisting next week should note that they will still be able to play the games as they please.
