Dontnod Releases 15-Minute Vampyr Walkthrough Video

Jeff Cork

Dontnod's upcoming game Vampyr transports players to London during a 1918 outbreak of the Spanish flu. To further complicate the situation, your character, Dr. Jonathan Reid, has to wrestle with the infection and its effects on the city as a whole while also coming to terms with something far more personal. He's a newly converted vampire, and how he balances his duties as a surgeon and his newfound blood lust is largely up to the player. The studio has released a 15-minute walkthrough of the game's early moments, which show off a bit of the game's combat, exploration, and overall gameplay flow. The demo is quite similar to what was shown at E3 and Gamescom, but it's still a great slice of gameplay.

Keep in mind that the footage is pre-alpha, so what you see may not be completely representative of the final game when it comes out next year. Still, you'll be able to see how Reid uses his powers of perception to search for potential victims and stays alive while being hunted by people who are doing their best to eliminate the vampiric scourge. Spoiler: Their best isn't quite good enough. (Please visit the site to view this media) Vampyr is set to release on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC.
