Life is Strange developer DONTNOD has released the first screenshots of its upcoming RPG called Vampyr.
These images paint a picture of the dark world acting as Vampyr’s setting, one based on 1918 London with a dash of vampires and a deadly flu spreading across its population.
Alongside these screenshots, DONTNOD has released some details about Vampyr’s premise, including confirming that it plans to implement moral choices, one that will test your vampire character’s willpower and they operate as a doctor in a disease-ridden London.
Prowl the disease ridden streets in Vampyr – a darkly atmospheric action RPG from the studio behind ‘Remember Me’ and ‘Life is Strange’, developed using Unreal Engine 4.
Set in early 20th century Britain during a bout of the lethal Spanish flu, the streets of London are crippled by disease, violence and fear. In a completely disorganized and ghostly city, those who are either fools, desperate, or unlucky enough to walk the streets lay prey to Britain’s most elusive predators: the Vampires.
Emerging from the chaos, a tormented figure awakes; as the player it is you who determines how to harness your new powers, by specializing in deadly, versatile RPG skill-trees that change the way you play. As a doctor recently turned into a Vampire, you try to understand your new affliction. Your quest of intuition, discoveries and struggles, will be filled with death and drama, while your attempt to stem the irrepressible thirst that constantly drives you to take human lives.
As you cling to what remains of your humanity, your decisions will ultimately shape the fate of your hero while searching for answers in the coughing, foggy aftermath of the Spanish Flu.
Vampyr is coming to PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One in 2017.
