Dontnod has released a new trailer for their upcoming action-RPG Vampyr. The latest video showcases the protagonist, Jonathan Reid’s moral plight
As a veteran of World War I Doctor Jonathan Reid, players will need to deal with his transition and the hunger that drives him to kill. The game will feature a unique level-up system that plays on this narrative conundrum, where huge amounts of experience points can be gained by feeding on innocent people, compared to combat. As a doctor, players must decide how many lives must be sacrificed in order for you to find a cure for this affliction.
Killing too many in a district may cause its infrastructure to collapse and turn into disarray. Every single life will also have a butterfly effect on the other NPCs surrounding them; a merchant’s wife could be killed and he could decide to close shop and leave town. Every life you take away will have consequences for the city and the people around them.
Vampyr comes out on PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC in 2017.
