DONTNOD Entertainment have released the first set of screenshots for their upcoming RPG, Vampyr.
Vampyr was revealed by DONTNOD late last year as an RPG set in Britain during the early 20th century. Below you will find the official story synopsis for the game:
Vampyr is set in early 20th century Britain as the country is gripped by the lethal Spanish flu and the streets of London are crippled by disease, violence and fear. In a disorganized and ghostly city, those foolish, desperate, or unlucky enough to walk the streets lay prey to Britain’s most elusive predators: the vampires. Emerging from the chaos, a tormented figure awakens. You are Jonathan E. Reid, a high-ranking military surgeon transformed into a vampire upon his return home from the frontline.
Explore the darkly atmospheric streets of early 20th century London, and interact with a multitude of characters with their own identities and importance. Accept and fulfill the missions they give you, but don’t forget: sooner or later, you will have to feed, and make a difficult choice… who will be your prey? Absolutely all characters in the game are potential victims of your vampiric lust. Carefully study the habits of your next victim, his or her relationships with other characters, and set up your strategy to feed, unnoticed: seduce them, change their daily habits, or make sure they end up alone in a dark street.
As you cling to what remains of your humanity, your decisions will ultimately shape the fate of your hero while searching for answers in the coughing, foggy aftermath of the Spanish Flu.
The game is being built on the Unreal Engine 4 and is due out in 2017 on the PC, PS4 and Xbox One. The first screenshots for the game were released today by DONTNOD and can be seen at the bottom of the article. The screens are rather dark, but do a pretty good job of setting up the atmosphere that DONTNOD is going for with Vampyr.
