A Closer Look: Vampyr from Dontnod Entertainment & Focus Home Interactive

Playing as a vampire yourself is an incredibly satisfying sounding gameplay proposition that looks as good as it sounds. Gamers found that much out recently at The Game Awards 2017 if they did not know it already, when the title was showcased as a New IP on the rise. Having seen the hero’s side of things far too often, this time players will walk the thin line between justified madness and darkness itself.

Dontnod Entertainment are best known for critically acclaimed Life Is Strange theory, which is a house favorite from Deputy Editor Tristan Werbe as well. This team also brought us Remember Me, a massively entertaining sleeper hit making technological leaps for its time in areas of game design and console storytelling action through visual fidelity gameplay experiences.

Focus Home Interactive as a publisher to team up with his legendary force of industry veterans has also a great few notches under its belt. Some games Focus Home Interactive has brought to gamers in the past inching towards their clear desire to work on a graphic title like this include (but are not limited to); Divinity: Original SinBound By FlameMars: War LogsStyx: Master of ShadowsThe Technomancer, and More.

Crafted on Unreal Engine 4 for the Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and Windows PC platforms (with high-resolution, smooth frame-rate enhancements for PlayStation 4 Pro / Xbox One X owners), Vampyr has its Art Direction performed by Grégory Szucs under Game Directors Philippe Moreau and the renowned Game Designer Florent Guillaume who take an ordinary human doctor to the grips of sanity as he must accept his new role in society being a fully turned vampyr.

Does the darkness come from the time you’re supposed to sleep? Or is the darkness linked to the sleep itself? A Spanish Flu is raging through out the game’s locale. London is the place in which players find themselves with the disastrous capability of taking out entire sections of the town.

Given the opportunity to use their supernatural hunger for their own decisions, what will players do with the guilt and shame of their own blood lust? Or can any immortal creature of the damned truly resist using his powers?
