Dive into a strange new world in the Vampyr story trailer
Dontnod Entertainment has released a story trailer for their upcoming action-RPG game Vampyr, revealing the game’s wider narrative arcs to the tone of an eerie cover of Blue Oyster Cult’s “(Don’t Fear) The Reaper.” Returning from the frontlines to a London devastated by war and disease, Dr. Jonathan Reid awakens to a once-hidden world of ungodly creatures, secret societies, and vampire hunts. Check out the trailer in the player below and let us know if you’ll be checking out the new game from the developers behind Remember Me and Life is Strange.
In Vampyr, players will play as Jonathan Reid, a doctor in 1918 London newly-turned into a vampire following his return from the Great War. His convictions blown away, Reid discovers the existence of a dark new world where supernatural creatures and secret societies live together in the shadows… and he is now part of this world.
As a newborn vampire shattered by an irrepressible thirst for blood and thrust into a strange new world, Reid attempts to interpret the supernatural in the best way he knows how: rational thinking. However, between ancient societies, mysterious murders, and an imminent large-scale vampire hunt, his scientific assurances are challenged like never before.
Driven by a personal desire to learn who caused his transformation and why, Jonathan Reid continues working to find a cure for the devastating disease that decimates its citizens. But doing so, he must confront his nature as a blood-drinker and the terrible temptation to feed on those he swore to protect…
Vampyr releases June 5 on the PS4, Xbox One, and PC. Players can pre-order the game now by clicking here.
