Vampyr is an upcoming action role-playing video game developed by Dontnod Entertainment and published by Focus Home Interactive. It will be available for Microsoft Windows, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One in Q4 2017.
The plot revolves around vampire doctor Jonathan Reid who is coming to terms with his undead condition. He must deal with being torn between the Hippocratic Oath and his newfound bloodthirsty nature. The player is under no obligation to kill to finish the game. Dialogue options can be used for hunting prey to feed on, which replenishes strength and levels up the lead character. Weapons and supernatural abilities are employed while combatting enemies. London serves as a fictionalised semi-open world composed of four districts, all amenable to destruction should the average health of its citizens diminish.
Vampyr is based on the 1918 London Spanish flu pandemic. The setting was researched by travelling to London and the visuals were made with fictional and factual reference points in mind.
