Vampyr shows his narrative arc through a new trailer, which presents the story of the mysterious Action-RPG set in London in 1918.
Vampyr, the upcoming action-RPG from DONTNOD Entertainment, will release June 5 on PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC. The game’s wider narrative arcs are unveiled today in a captivating Story Trailer, brought together with an eerie cover of (Don’t Fear) the Reaper. Returning from the frontlines to a London devastated by war and disease, Dr. Jonathan Reid awakens to a once-hidden world of ungodly creatures, secret societies and vampire hunts.
In Vampyr, you play as Jonathan Reid, a doctor in 1918 London newly-turned into a vampire following his return from the Great War. His convictions blown away, Reid discovers the existence of a dark new world where supernatural creatures and secret societies live together in the shadows… and he is now part of this world.
As a newborn vampire shattered by an irrepressible thirst of blood and thrust into a strange new world, Reid attempts to interpret the supernatural in the best way he knows how: rational thinking. However, between ancient societies, mysterious murders and an imminent large-scale vampire hunt, his scientific assurances are challenged like never before. Driven by a personal desire to learn who caused his transformation and why, Jonathan Reid continues working to find a cure to the devastating disease that decimates its citizens.
But doing so, he must confront his nature as a blood-drinker and the terrible temptation to feed on those he swore to protect…
We’re bringing to retail a Limited Vinyl Sound Selection as a physical bonus for Vampyr:
In an immersive game such as Vampyr, the soundtrack plays a tremendous role in how players perceive the environment. We even talked about it in details in our webseries DONTNOD Presents Vampyr, and the reaction from the community was outstandingly good.
That’s why this vinyl came naturally as a perfect physical bonus that will please the fans. It was also natural for us to highlight the music of the game, because the OST was composed by Olivier Derivière who worked on numerous video game soundtracks and was recently nominated at the BAFTA Games for the Music category award with his work on Get Even.
