Vampyr

We know very little about Vampyr, the new Vampire RPG from Remember Me and Life is Strange developer Dontnod. What we do know, is that it’s really about time we got a new RPG about vampires. The last memorable one, Vampire The Masquerades: Bloodlines was excellent – but came out in 2004.

It’s time. Could Vampyr be the game those of us who live the Vampiric myths have been waiting for? These new screenshots certainly suggest as much.

“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 “

It’ a game in which you’ll have to feed, but who you choose to feed on may have consequences for the rest of the in-game universe as you play.

“Be careful who you choose to hunt, as they will be gone forever, and their death will impact in a meaningful way the world that surrounds you. Feeding on human blood will not just keep you ‘alive’; it will also unlock new vampiric powers to use”

It’s a game that, so far, seems like it really focuses on Vampires as predators, instead of romanticised, sparkly teenagers.

Here’s that concept trailer from last year:

Editor. I’m old, grumpy and more than just a little cynical. One day, I found myself in possession of a NES, and a copy of Super Mario Bros 3. It was that game that made me realise that games were more than just toys to idly while away time – they were capable of being masterpieces. I’m here now, looking for more of those masterpieces.

  • Umar

    Yes. All the yes. ALL THE FREAKING YES IN THE WORLD.

  • Alien Emperor Trevor

    Really keen to see what they do with this, might’ve been very linear but I quite enjoyed Remember Me.

    • Captain JJ the “saviour”

      I remember you!

      • Alien Emperor Trevor

        How many times must we tell you that you weren’t abducted by aliens?

        • Captain JJ the “saviour”

          But there was a bright light, and really skinny people with big heads….wait, was I in California?

          • Alien Emperor Trevor

            Or Camp’s Bay

          • Captain JJ the “saviour”

            Biggest heads there, probably

  • Captain JJ the “saviour”

    So…not mortal vampires then.

    • Alien Emperor Trevor

      Urg. You don’t get to make fun of sparkly vampires if you’re one of those vampyre people. Nerd!

      • Captain JJ the “saviour”

        Damn you!
        I’m a nice person!

        • Alien Emperor Trevor

          • Captain JJ the “saviour”

            If I don’t refresh you didn’t post anything!

          • Alien Emperor Trevor

            But you are going to refresh. We both know it.

          • Captain JJ the “saviour”

            Damn you!

        • Commander Admiral Chief

          A cup of tea is nice, Mrs Jones down the street is nice, the weather is nice.

          You sir, are, not that

  • Ryanza

    Vampyr – turn up the gamma

    Don’t Support DRM. Cyberpunk 2077 is coming. Neon lights.

  • Commander Admiral Chief

    Sounds like a better love story than something else we won’t mention

    • Commander Admiral Chief

      That being said, I’m VERY thankful for THOSE specific sparkly movies. Those were the last movies my wife had a say over, after that, I told her I’ll be in charge of what we watch together. Just NO way I’m EVER sitting through something like that again.

      They were my liberation from chick flicks, and our marriage is for the better now, since I don’t moan and groan through movies, she gets to watch those movies, and I get more gaming time.

      Thank you movie which we won’t mention, you have given me more gaming time!

      • Alien Emperor Trevor

        What’s wrong with Magic Mike?

        • Commander Admiral Chief

          Never seen it, sounds like a kiddies show?

          • Alien Emperor Trevor

            I’d pay good money to see your reaction watching that with your kid.

          • Captain JJ the “saviour”

            LOOOOL

          • Commander Admiral Chief

            Thanks for the heads up, I’ll avoid it totally

          • Captain JJ the “saviour”

            So close

  • Commander Admiral Chief
  • Skittle

    Darkness Simulator

    I personally like to see what is going on in the game I’m playing.

  • But can you feed without killing?

    Will there be alternatives to feeding like Blood Banks?

    Will Max Time travel to stop you?
