Vampyr Documentary Series, Episode 4 and Release Date Reveal
The last part of the Documentary series for Action RPG Vampyr reveals more about the story and setting for the game. Game release date changed to June 5th.
DONTNOD have already proven how great they are at storytelling with the fantastic Life is Strange and in their upcoming Action RPG Vampyr they will go one step further as they bring their stories to life with some great gameplay mechanics. Unlike many narrative driven games, the developers want players to feel engaged with the game, and not simply be a spectator along for the ride. One thing they are trying to do is finding ways to keep the player involved in the game while also trying to push the story forward. Since the game is set in 1918 London the city itself can be used as a way to explore, investigate and deliver a compelling story that drives the player to find out more. In this latest video we get a look at exactly how they are bringing the world of London to life with gameplay and story.
This is the last chapter of the 4 part video series that gives players a look behind the scenes at the upcoming Action RPG Vampyr from DONTNOD which is launching on June 5th. Missed a part? Take a look at Episode 1, Episode 2 or Episode 3 to catch up! If you've already caught up with the other parts take a look at Episode 4 below.
In Vampyr the player is encouraged to have greater control over their character, by giving them a deeper relationship with the world around them. Game Director Philippe Moreau mentions that they are working hard to make sure this is a unique aspect of the game not seen in any other title and that they are working hard to make sure it's special in the game.
The game relies heavily on bringing immersion to the player, and they add motion capture to bring their NPC's to life with realistic movements and dialogue. This allows the game to offer a deeper sense of realism as the characters feel more Human. Couple this with great music, creatures and it brings London to life. How you decide who lives and who dies will be up to you.
Vampyr also has a new release date, and will be releasing on June 5th for PC and consoles. You can pre-order the game on PC today from us.
