Remember Me and Life Is Strange developer Dontnod Entertainment has released a new concept teaser for the upcoming Vampyr.
The teaser trailer, which can be viewed below, has Vampyr protagonist Jonathan E. Reid commenting on the social problems afflicting the city of London, which ranges from a disease epidemic to violence.
Vampyr, which was announced earlier this year, is an RPG horror title running on the Unreal Engine 4 and published by Focus Home Interactive.
Assuming the role of Jonathan Reid, a World War I military surgeon who becomes a vampire, players will be left with the “difficult choice” when it comes to selecting their next victim, as it requires strategic planning and execution for taking out a specific target.
While feeding on blood is a necessity for Reid, Dontnod has suggested that there should be caution when picking a certain individual, mainly for the reason that once they are dead, “they will be gone forever, and their death will impact in a meaningful way the world that surrounds you.”
Of course, consuming blood is a crucial factor in allowing Reid to acquire new powers. Speaking of Reid’s powers, the title will have a “dynamic real-time combat” system, which combines the protagonist’s supernatural ability with the game’s melee and shooting mechanics.
Reid’s vampirical powers, however, are connected with his health, meaning that while the player can receive an additional boost in battle by activating his unique ability, there will be consequences as a result.
Vampyr also features a wide-ranging selection of enemies, including vampire hunters and different types of vampires, as well as a crafting mechanic that allows players to produce new types of ammunition, craft new weapons or upgrade one of their weapons.
Vampyr is scheduled for release in 2017 for PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC.
