After Square Enix announced that Vampyr woud be debuted at E3 this week, official details were announced today from the show floor. Both Focus Home Interactive and DontNod are colloborating on the new RPG due out in 2017. Vampyr is set in early 20th century Britain as the country is gripped by the lethal Spanish flu and the streets of London are crippled by disease, violence and fear. In a disorganized and ghostly city, those foolish, desperate, or unlucky enough to walk the streets lay prey to Britain’s most elusive predators: the vampires. Emerging from the chaos, a tormented figure awakens. You are Jonathan E. Reid, a high-ranking military surgeon transformed into a vampire upon his return home from the frontline.

Of course, as a Vampyr, you will need to feed on human blood which will unlock new powers for your character. Your decisions will also impact how your gameplay goes. Should you decide to hunt a certain target and succeed, they will be gone from the game forever and impact the direction the game will take. Vampyr implores a deep crafting system and unique, strategy oriented battle system. Should you attempt to use your vampire abilities in battle, you will gain a distinct advantage but doing so will also leave you weaker. In this sense, a kean sense of planning is required in order for you to succeed.
