It’s 1918 and London is in the grip of the deadly Spanish flu. Its once bustling population has been laid to waste. Violence and fear are everywhere.

London’s streets and alleyways hide predators more deadly than disease, however. This is where, unbeknownst to the city’s inhabitants, vampires prowl…vampires schooled in war.

You, as high-ranking military surgeon Jonathan E. Reid, return from the frontline only to be transformed into one of these vampires. You’ll face a wide variety of enemies such as different species of vampires and creatures, and vampire hunters who want to hunt you down with their weapons, tools and traps.

Feeding on human blood will keep you “alive” and unlock new vampiric powers. As you cling to what remains of your humanity, your decisions will ultimately shape your fate.

Vampyr, from developer Dontnod Entertainment (Life is StrangeRemember Me) and publisher Focus Home Interactive, is being constructed with Unreal Engine 4. It will be released in 2017 on PS4, Xbox One and PC/Windows.

I've been with JA in one capacity or other since 2003. I'm currently website administrator. I'm also a digital artist (my avatar is one of my creations). I write reviews and articles, create graphics and basically help tend the site. It's work I enjoy very much. I love playing games of all kinds, but adventure and RPGs are my favorites (particularly scary/dark/unsettling ones). At the top of my list are The Cat Lady, The Longest Journey, Dreamfall, Still Life (first one only), Scratches and Culpa Innata. I'm a dyed-in-the-wool recluse and prefer the company of animals, hardware and ghosts to human beings (no offense). And no bio would be complete without my saying that I do NOT care for phones of ANY sort. Further, I think Dell computers are garbage and that Microsoft has become megalomaniacal.
