Because who doesn’t love a vampire origin story?

Ahead of its planned 2018 release, Vampyr developer DONTNOD are releasing the ‘DONTNOD Presents Vampyr’ mini-series surrounding the development of the vampire RPG. And you lucky lot even get to watch a teaser trailer before the first episode arrives on January 18.

The first episode will be taking a look at how all the spooky monsters were made, with the following episodes focusing on the game’s architecture, an episode titled ‘Human After All’ which will probably look at the human side of being a bloodsucking parasitic vampire, and the final episode will look at the stories that make up the game.

Each episode will show off some exclusive gameplay footage so, if you’ve been chomping at the bit for some new gameplay, this series is the place to start.

The first episode, ‘Making Monsters’ will arrive on DONTNOD’s YouTube Channel on January 18 – and Vampyr is set to arrive in Spring 2018 for PS4, Xbox One, and PC.
