Vampyr – The dark adventure is out now on Nintendo Switch

Vampyr, DONTNOD’s narrative-driven action-RPG, is out now on Nintendo Switch™! Discover more about this dark adventure’s first portable outing in the intense Launch Trailer today.

 

Set in an unforgettable interpretation of 1918 London, Vampyr puts you in the role of Dr. Jonathan Reid, a newly-turned vampire. Confronted with a new world of ancient horrors and hidden societies, you’re challenged with saving a dying city’s citizens while uncovering the truth behind your terrible condition.

 

Choose to be the savior or the stalker. The blood of London’s citizens fuels your new-found powers in order to overcome supernatural foes. However, feed too freely, and you may doom the city for eternity. The consequences of each life taken will send ripples through each of London’s districts – who will you sacrifice for the greater good?

About Vampyr

Prowl the disease ridden streets in Vampyr – a darkly atmospheric action RPG from the studio behind ‘Remember Me’ and ‘Life is Strange’. Set in early 20th century Britain during a bout of the lethal Spanish flu, the streets of London are crippled by disease, violence and fear. In a completely disorganized and ghostly city, those who are either fools, 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 awakes; as the player it is you who determines how to harness your new powers, by specializing in deadly, versatile RPG skill-trees that change the way you play. As a doctor recently turned into a Vampire, you try to understand your new affliction.

 

Your quest of intuition, discoveries and struggles, will be filled with death and drama, while your attempt to stem the irrepressible thirst that constantly drives you to take human lives. As you cling to what remains of your humanity, your decisions will ultimately shape the fate of your hero while searching for answers in the coughing, foggy aftermath of the Spanish Flu.

 

Key Features

  • Explore a darkly atmospheric early 20th century London.
  • Play a tormented and powerful Vampire learning the rules of your new condition. A man of science, a beast of the night: Your toughest battles will be within yourself.
  • Build your own combat style through a wide range of crafted weapons and powerful Vampire abilities to defeat a large and unique bestiary.
  • Choose your fate: moral choices will shape your story. How human could a Vampire be, when he must feed?
