Life is Strange Developer Shows Glimpse of Next Game Vampyr

Riding the wave of success from Life is Strange, developer, Dontnod Entertainment has revealed screenshots of its new title, Vampyr.

It couldn’t be further away from the sunset drenched coastline of Life is Strange. Vampyr takes place in the dark, grimy streets of London, at the turn of the last century. The city has been devastated by World War I and the Spanish Flu, making it the perfect feeding ground for vampires.

You play as a vampire in this horror RPG, which lets you decide who you feed on. The only catch is that every character you kill has some impact on the way the world events play out.

Expect combat, key narrative choices and an historically accurate setting. This is an ambitious take on vampires, which haven’t been tackled that much in games. And kudos to Dontnod for changing it up from one game to the next – from Remember Me to Life is Strange and now Vampyr, this team is showing some versatility.

Take a look at last year’s concept teaser and the new artwork:
