Vampyr will release on Q1/Q2 2018

Vampyr is an upcoming action role-playing video game developed by Dontnod Entertainment and published by Focus Home Interactive for release on Microsoft Windows, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One in Q1/Q2 2018. Vampyr takes place in London during the 1918 Spanish flu pandemic. The setting was researched by travelling to London, consulting history books and documentaries, and the visuals were made with fictional and factual reference points in mind.

Vampyr is an action role-playing game played from a third-person perspective. The player controls the game's protagonist Jonathan E. Reid, a doctor who was made into a vampire, and whose thirst for blood compels him to kill innocent people. To do this successfully, he must gather information about his targets—study and change their habits, collect clues and maintain certain relationships by communicating with the inhabitants of London, which serves as a fictionalised semi-open world built around hubs of seamless neighbourhoods tethered to other interlinking areas. It is possible to finish the game without taking a life, which best preserves the character's cover as a doctor but leaves him nearly incapable of levelling up. Killing no one unlocks one of four different endings. There is a skill tree that facilitates improvement of abilities, which is fuelled by experience points gained from blood and, alternatively, investigation. The branches of the skill tree concern shadow, instinct, and social abilities.

If one so chooses, anyone in the game could be targeted, which will have consequences that affect the citizens of London. Reid can turn people into vampires and will only be able to enter a house with an invitation. Locals each have their different backgrounds, relationships and daily routines. If killed, they will impart to Reid their last thought. The "Mesmerise" ability can determine the behaviour of weaker targets, like coercing them into revealing important information or guiding them to less conspicuous areas so as to feed without resorting to combat. Feeding on human blood will unlock new vampiric powers in addition to providing nourishment. One can heal injured or sick victims with crafted medicine, whom if eaten, will yield more experience points in the process; the rate of their affliction can be viewed using Reid's vampire senses. His senses will also detect blood. Each of the four districts will have a score based on the average health of its citizens. Reid navigates the city of London using a waypoint with icons leading to a given destination.
