Today Focus Home Interactive released the action RPG Vampyr for PC/PS4/Xbox One by DONTNOD Entertainment. In the game, you are Dr. Jonathan Reid, a newly turned Vampyr living in London in 1918. As a doctor, you must search for a cure for the Spanish Flu epidemic ravaging the citizens, yet as a Vampyr you are cursed to feed on those you sworn to heal.
As a Vampyr, you are able to fight and manipulate with supernatural abilities. At night, you must defend against the strange creatures that roam London. You are both the savior and the stalker as you must feed to survive. Who you choose to sacrifice for the greater good makes a difference, and you must be prepared for the consequences.
