If you are into vampires so much (but not the mushy type like the Twilight or the gore type with all those bloods and violence), you may like the Vampyr, a game designed for the vampire fans who want to have a fanged hero character. No, it is not a cheesy game, believe me. If you still have doubts about the game, you should find the trailer video in Youtube and see how you like it so far.
Vampyr Gaming Development and Release
Focus Home Interactive will be responsible for the publishing of Vampyr while Dontnod Entertainment is the developer. With the Unreal Engine 4 as the gaming engine platform, the overall game is pretty smooth and good. This single player action role playing game is set for PS4, Xbox One, and Microsoft Windows. It is planned to release in 2017 although the exact date hasn’t been known just yet.
Vampyr Story and Plot
This third person role playing game is about a vampire and a doctor, Jonathan E. Reid, who has to deal with his personal blood-thirst conflict. As a doctor, he saves lives but as a vampire, he takes lives – sometimes the lives of the innocent. It is a part of the game as the player; you need to study your ‘prey’s’ habit, change them if necessary, collect the clues, and also maintain a certain relationship. The setting takes place in London in 1918, which is around the Spanish flu pandemic. If you maintain your consciousness and decide to end the game without ever taking lives, that’s okay – it’s your decision to make. But you won’t be able to level up – and so is your character.
From this explanation, you can see that taking blood is important to level up and replenish your character’s strength. You will also be able to use ranged and melee weapons to combat the enemies. In Vampyr, London will be your hunting ground and your gaming platform.
Vampyr and Character’s Ability
As a vampire, you will have some cool abilities, such as vampire sense or The Mesmerize. How you handle the game will affect the development of the story. You can also change people to vampires but remember….there are always consequences to that and it can change the story too. If you are into the double identity with a rather unique main character, this is definitely a game to try. With Vampyr, be ready to explore the gloomy and dark world without risking anything.
