Vampyr

Post by Defiant » Sun Jun 21, 2015 1:39 pm

The developer of the absolutely excellent Life is Strange (which you should go out and play right now if you havent already), has announced a new game, called Vampyr:
Vampyr is set in set in an early 20th century Britain, which is thrown into chaos by a lethal Spanish Flu, and vampires that haunt the streets at night. Player will take on the role of Jonathan E. Reid, a military surgeon that becomes a vampire when he returns home from the war.
Some more details, and a concept teaser here:

Sounds good, though given the excellent Life is Strange, I wish they would do another game like that (if not necessarily a sequel).

This is being made under contract with a bigger publisher. So I think this studio's plan is to make big and little games, alternating between the two.

Remember Me was on contract with Capcom, I liked what it was trying to do, even if it was a failure in the long run. Life is Strange is definitely more their style.

Trailer
Dontnod Entertainment's new action RPG Vampyr today unveils a new cinematic trailer depicting the legends and tales of its mysterious protagonist, Dr Jonathan Reid. Set in 1918 London during a deadly bout of the Spanish Flu that left London's alleys and promenade's wailing in agony, Dr Reid awakes having arrived home from serving in the Great War with a deathly new ailment: vampirism. A Doctor, Reid considers his affliction another disease. As he tries to understand and to live with it, he desperately tries to continue his life as a doctor, helping those stricken with flu.

Watch today's trailer to hear whispers in the night from Vampyr's many citizens - each with their own names, back stories, and daily lives. When Vampyr releases in 2017 on PS4, Xbox One, and PC, it will be you who decides whether to shrug off his ghoulish reputation, or lay waste to London's already troubled streets.

In Vampyr, every citizen killed will affect London's safety. From shop closures to missing kin, the act of killing is unavoidable, but who you kill, and how, is in your hands. Every civilian can be killed, or saved - but as hordes of vampire hunters prowl the streets, growing strong on the blood of the weak will be ever more tempting.

Vampyr Delayd


DontNod Entertainment announces that Vampyr is going to need a little more time in the coffin before it emerges. The blood-sucking action/RPG was previously due this year, but now word is to expect it in the spring:

Eagerly awaited by many players at the end of this year, upcoming RPG Vampyr announces the delay of its release date to Spring 2018, on PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC. Oskar Guilbert, CEO of DontNod Entertainment, explains:
'Delaying the release of a project you hold dear is always a tough decision. However, we believe that meeting a deadline should never compromise quality. We were still convinced just a few weeks ago that we would be able to release Vampyr this year. Unfortunately, a technical issue - now solved - has set our teams' schedule back at the end of the development.

This delay allows us enough time for all the polishing and balancing phase, much needed for a game of Vampyr's scope, with its ambitious, semi-open world, its complex narrative and deep RPG mechanics that give players a real impact on the world.

We want to thank our publisher Focus Home Interactive for giving us the means and time necessary to provide players a memorable experience... especially since so many of you are eagerly waiting for it.'
Vampyr will be available Spring 2018 on PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC.

Ah, there's finally a release date. That's awesome.

I and my sister have been looking forward to this game and Detroit for a while. Well, it's mostly me but my enthusiasm got to her. :D

I like how they went with an entirely new genre/atmosphere with their second game. Absolute respect to the developers for not just wanting to make a sequel to a game that did well, not that I would mind a second Life Is Strange.

They also did the beautiful and satisfying Remember Me - a game which still resonates with me.

Ah! It's a very subtle hint when you see the game title, log in and it says "Remember Me" on the log in screen. :D

Anyway, I've been eyeing Remember Me for a while, but never could quite commit to the purchase. I didn't know it was made by the same developers and now, I'm extremely curious about it. Will pick it up the next time I see it on sale. :)

I think greenmangaming has Remember Me for $6 right now, even less using the VIP code they splatter all over your interface.
I don't remember where I read this, Cort, maybe it was in the last patch notes, but they said the UAZ really handles the best when... the wheels are actually touching the ground.

Looks like Vampire: Bloodlines, plays like (lots of 3rd person fighters), sounds like Legacy of Kain.

Not a bad thing.

Twitch VOD: Vampyr - Dev Session - Thursday May 17th 5PM CEST

I watched the first few minutes of the live stream, then bailed because they were showing actual gameplay from the early part of the game and I wanted to avoid any plot spoilers.

It looks like the game unlocked some time today (maybe at new day Zulu?). I just started the 14G download.

Pet peeve - I wish gaming companies would do their game releases/unlocks on Fridays instead of Tuesdays (IMHO, Tuesdays are based on antiquated shipping schedules which shouldn't apply in a digital age, and they need to move to a movie schedule and release like blockbusters on Thursday nights/Fridays, with Holiday weekends for big releases). I would have bought this last Friday, but now I can wait and probably won't buy it until it drops/goes on a good sale (prefer xBox for surround sound/4k in the dark)...
