Vampyr - Launch Trailer



Click on the Headline for the Trailer.

Quote:
Vampyr celebrates release next week with bloodthirsty Launch Trailer!

Vampyr, the narrative-driven action-RPG from DONTNOD Entertainment, releases next week - take control of newly-turned vampire Dr. Jonathan Reid from Tuesday, June 5th, on PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC. Today, prepare to stalk or save the streets of 1918 London with Vampyr’s Launch Trailer!

In Vampyr you play as Dr. Jonathan Reid, a famous surgeon and blood transfusion specialist freshly turned into a vampire after arriving back in his home city of London following the Great War. A man of logic and science, Reid’s firm beliefs are turned inside-out upon awakening to a once-hidden world of secret societies, ungodly creatures and ancient orders set upon ending his existence. All the while, London’s population crumbles under the pressure of a terrible disease – and Dr. Reid may be the city’s last hope to stop it.

Every one of Vampyr’s citizens is part of an interconnected social web, and the fate of one citizen in a social circle will impact the everyday life of the others, as well as the direction of the narrative. Each citizen has their own story, life and personal quests – and every last one can be spared or sacrificed in Reid’s quest. Reid is a vampire, and the fastest way to evolve and unlock new supernatural abilities for combat is by drinking the blood of the living. In Vampyr, it’s not “Do I kill?” but “Who do I kill?”. Deadly encounters plague the doctor’s journey, and each citizen offers a tempting source of power… but there will be consequences.

Each of the four main districts have health status linked with the number of living, dead and sick citizens. By feeding sparingly and keeping the populace healthy with crafted medicines, balance can be maintained. However, if the health status drops too low, the district will be lost to supernatural creatures along with every quest, shop and citizen that once lived there. If every district of London falls, the game can still be played to completion, though with an outcome that suits such recklessness.

Your actions will save or doom London.

It always seems like they don't show much of the levels or game play.

I hope this turns out fun.

Probably because it looks like a half-assed Dishonored ripoff with a 3rd-person camera.

Looks like triple A in the 90's early 2000's.

Health bar plates over enemies. What is this a mmo?

whoever is making these trailers needs to be fired.


The game play videos are the only thing that made me actually think I MIGHT give this a chance.


because the trailers simply look like misdirection as to what the game contains, where is the video of gameplay shows me it isn't a ground breaking game, but interesting enough to get me interested if decent.


games are more and more like politics trying to sell a cash grab.

Fuck off, make a good game and the money will flow, otherwise you're cutting your own wrists and will bleed out before you're given a chance to make a real game.

The combat doesn't seem like the worst thing but look at this UI



44 minutes in, gotta be kidding me.

I mean it's really simplistic so doesn't convey elegance like the usual gothic setting would normally have it's basic like early pc gaming. It could change but I feel this is the final form of it. ALSO HUGE FUCKING HEALTH BARS.

Aren't health bars a pretty common single player feature? Think Dark Souls or God Of War, both have them.

Fully agree with you, the UI is horrible, it feels like a cheap game with it, it would have been better to be minimalist with it or at least make it smaller and transparent.

I saw a review on YouTube. They give it a buy recommendation. It was a 20 minute review and the gameplay looked great. I finally realized that I need to play and finish the games I have. No reason to buy a game and have it collect dust.
