Just before E3, we get an extended trailer for the upcoming Vampyr from Focus Home Interactive. You can find it below and in case you haven’t been following Vampyr, the synopsis is as follows:
You are Dr. Jonathan Reid, a famous surgeon home from the Great War and recently turned into a vampire against your own will. As a doctor, you have taken an oath to save lives and take care of the sick. As a vampire, you are cursed to hunt those you vowed to heal.
To survive against deadly foes roaming the streets – vampire hunters, undead Skal and other monstrosities – you will need to choose which civilians to feed on, so you can grow stronger and evolve your vampiric abilities. Use your unholy powers to manipulate and delve into the lives of those around you – but be prepared to live with the consequences of your actions. A web of interconnected citizens with unique lives and relationships react to your decisions, and killing just one may cause the downfall of an entire city district. Your actions will save or doom London.
Vampyr has looked more and more interesting each time we’ve seen it. The concept of being a Vampire in London in 1918 is already intriguing so if they can make choice matter as they are describing, this could turn out to be one of the surprise hits of the year. Stay tuned through E3!
