Life is Strange developer, Dontnod Entertainment, has released new screenshots from their upcoming projects. Titled Vampyr, it will be an action RPG set in London in 1918. The developer promises a unique and immersive experience with a strong narrative.
The first screenshots of the game showcase the game’s world, as the Spanish flu laid waste to London’s once bustling population. Every character in the game has his or her own unique back-story and will affect the world. Be careful who you choose to hunt, as they will be gone forever, and their death will impact the world around you. Feeding on human blood will not just keep you “alive”, it will also unlock new vampiric powers to use. As a Doctor, and subsequently a former human, you may also choose to heal your potential prey by crafting medicines from items collected in the game world.
Vampyr’s combat will be a melee-focused real time affair blending melee combos with vampire powers. Players will be able to find and pick crafting materials from your victims and exploration allowing to forge new tools and weapons.
Vampyr is currently scheduled for a 2017 release.
