Vampyr improves performance in latest patch, next will add ‘Story’ difficulty level

If you enjoy Vampyr's bark but not its neckbite, then your story-drinking needs may be met by an upcoming 'Story mode' which tones down the combat. Or if you've mastered the murder murder murder kill kill kill of Dontnod's vampiric RPG and want more of a challenge, a 'Hard mode' will have your back. And probably put a knife in it. These two will arrive…

Netflix’s Castlevania will make a mess of your Halloween plans

If you're like me, a recent playthrough (or two) of Vampyr has left with you a taste for something unholy... a taste for more complicated vampire stories that Vampire: The Masquerade – Bloodlines can't seem to quench. Well, for my children of the night, excellent news has just arrived via a cloud of mist that transitioned into a press release and then back into a…

Vampyr’s first patch takes a bite out of some funny bugs

While no amount of patching (short of a Final Fantasy XV-style rewrite) will address its clumsy final act, flawed but fascinating gothic RPG Vampyr received its first patch this week. It addresses a few minor bugs and smooths out mouse and keyboard controls, including better lock-on targeting. Still, we're a little sad to see some of the less game-threatening (and more YouTube highlight-worthy) bugs fixed, as they were…

Dontnod’s Vampyr rises on June 5

Dontnod's vampiric action-RPG Vampyr will launch on June 5th, publishers Focus Home announced today. Vampyr whisk us back to a flu-ridden London in 1918 as a newly-vampirated doctor to do murders, drink blood, and shape the future of the city as we wrestle with moral dilemmas. While Dontnod are best known for Life Is Strange, it's probably more helpful here to remember they're studio behind…

Dontnod’s Vampyr rising in November

After Dontnod Entertainment announced a second Life Is Strange, I did half-forget that they're making another game. They are! Vampyr [official site] is an action-RPG with a bloodsucker skulking around London in 1918, tangled up in secret societies, monsterfights, and other undead antics. Supposedly there will be consequences to who we choose to snack on, though it's definitely more along the lines of Dontnod's face-punching…

Watch 14 Minutes Of Vampyr Pre-Alpha Gameplay

Oh hey, I didn't see this gameplay demo walkthrough-y footage of Vampyr [official site] come up earlier this week. It's sort of from E3 but this version that doesn't have people talking over the top so let's have a look now. (In case you need a little refresher it's that vampire-themed RPG from the Life Is Strange devs where you're a vampire doctor and have…

Feast Your Fangs On Vampyr’s First Footage

Johnathan Reid, the protagonist of upcoming action-RPG Vampyr [official site], is having a torrid time. As if fighting in The Great War wasn't hard enough, he's returned to a broken London that's overcome with Spanish Flu. He's a surgeon, which means he's on the front lines of the epidemic, and he's only just now discovered that he might be a vampire. In a job that…

Vampyr: A Trinity Of Screenshots

Gather ye round, for I have some more screenshots from that Vampyr [official site] game Dontnod are working on. Afterlife is strange etc etc. You can click for the bigger version. I will look up the specifics in a moment, but I just wanted to say that without the blood spurts the above image would be a nice "dude surprises his boyfriend of an evening"…

Death Is Strange: First Screens Of Dontnod’s Vampyr

When I first caught wind of Vampyr [official site], an action-RPG set in the Spanish Flu-ravaged streets of early 20th century London, I was quite excited. When I discovered Remember Me and Life Is Strange developers Dontnod Entertainment had their name on it, I was really quite excited. We haven't seen the game in motion yet, but we can today have a look at its…

New Vampyr Details From Life Is Strange Developer

Although announced prior to the start of episodic adventure Life Is Strange earlier this year, Vampyr [official site] was thereafter resigned to the shadows cast by its Spanish flu-ridden early 20th century London cityscape setting. Developers DONTNOD Entertainment have only now revealed more about their upcoming vampire-infused action RPG.

Vampyr Is An RPG From Life Is Strange Studio Dontnod

I first encounted vampyr one night in Putney, two weeks after the funeral of my dear friend Archibald Guts. He'd returned from a post overseas and seemed somewhat under the weather. We all believed him to be suffering from the malaria or a severe gin-deficiency, but it was a fever of the blood that did for him and it was that same fever that caused…

Life Is Strange, Death Is Stranger: Vampyr

Vampyr is a newly announced action RPG from DONTNOD, creators of Remember Me and the upcoming episodic adventure Life Is Strange. Development is at the earliest of stages but the game will be published by Focus when it eventually releases, and I had the chance to extract some details yesterday while at an event for the company's upcoming games (Battlefleet Gothic feature coming shortly -…
