DONTNOD Entertainment has released some new screenshots from their upcoming action-RPG this morning, revealing the main character along with some very dark and gritty looking environments.
The main character is “Dr. Jonathan Reid, a newly formed vampire who is torn between the Hippocratic Oath he swore as a doctor, and the bloodthirsty need to kill due to the monster within,” according to the press release. “While London suffers from the Spanish Flu pandemic, your first reflex as a doctor would be to help and heal people… but it will be impossible for you to ignore your inner, violent, nature of Vampyr – first and foremost, you are a lethal predator. ”
Vampyr is set to be quite a dynamic game as each person you kill will send a “rippling effect” through London. One of the examples given in the press release describes taking out a doctor and then witnessing the consequences of such an action. The conditions of the patients of that doctor will begin to deteriorate following their death.
The game is being developed on the Unreal Engine 4 and will be released sometime in 2017 on the PS4, Xbox One and PC. We’ll be sure to keep an eye out for more details regarding Vampyr, but for now check out the new screenshots just below.
