How to not suck
Combat in Vampyr is like a combination of Assassin's Creed, Batman: Arkham Knight, and Bloodborne. You hack and slash your way through enemies, dodge and parry their attacks, and use special abilities to both heal yourself and harm others. While it's a pretty simple affair, there is a lot of depth to it that you might not realise at...
Vampyr might ask you to spend most of your time locked in dialogue with its cast of colourful characters, but it's first and foremost an RPG. That means experience, skill systems, and upgradable weapons. However, it's also a narrative adventure like Life is Strange, so the developers have tied the two genres together by providing the best XP...
DONTNOD has so far released two games: 2013's often forgotten Remember Me and the breakout success Life Is Strange. Vampyr is the ambitious company's latest project, and it combines the action of the former with the narrative focus of the latter. You play as Jonathan E. Reid, an acclaimed surgeon recently turned vampire who's...
Recently we got the chance to have a chat with the composer of DONTNOD's promising-looking Vampyr, Olivier Derivière. We got to discuss the manner in which he approaches his compositions, the intertwining of game development alongside the music, and how his passion for video games birthed a phenomenal composer for the industry...
A bloody chunk
Recently, Vampyr developer Dontnod Entertainment livestreamed a hefty chunk of the game, showcasing a whole 50 minutes of the upcoming action role-playing title. We've embedded an archive of the stream above, and the action kicks off around the 16 minute mark. It looks interesting and atmospheric, if a little rough around the edges...
Hooray, Vampyr has gone gold! It feels like we've been writing about Dontnod Entertainment's project for an eternity (it's been more than three years, actually), but the action role-playing game is finally ready to sink its fangs into PlayStation 4 next month. Indeed, the title isn't far away at all, set to hit store shelves on the 5th...
Vampyr, the latest title from Life is Strange developer DONTNOD, has always looked promising, but we've not seen a great deal of the game's combat. In this new mood-setting trailer, entitled 'Becoming the Monster', we get to see some brief snippets of the action. It looks like you'll be combining regular melee attacks with your vampiric...
Werewolves! Monsters! Crazy religious cults! It seems there’ll be a lot more supernatural to Vampyr’s plot, as this story trailer teases all sorts of shenanigans on London’s cobbled streets. To be honest, we’re not entirely sure what this clip is trying to tell us, but it serves as a decent mood piece – we especially like the...
Fangs very much
The last of the four-episode web series on DONTNOD's Vampyr has been made available today. This video is entitled "Stories From the Dark", and sees the development team speak about how they've approached storytelling within their latest title. They talk about the narrative bleeding into the gameplay, and how telling stories in games...
The third video in DONTNOD's Vampyr development series is out now, which we've embedded for you above. Entitled 'Human After All', this episode focuses on the myriad citizens that populate 1918 London. With the moral quandary of who to kill and when being a central point to the game, it's good to hear that each NPC has a story,...
"We tried to withhold visual information"
DONTNOD's Vampyr dev diary series continues with the second episode, entitled Architects of the Obscure. Once again, a couple of developers from the studio highlight some specific areas about their bloodthirsty new game. The team talks about the four districts of London you'll be able to explore, detailing...
The first episode of the Vampyr webseries has made its way to YouTube. Entitled 'Making Monsters', the video features several developers from DONTNOD discussing their take on vampires, and the decisions players will have to make throughout their adventure. As we know, you play as the doctor-turned-vampire Jonathan Reid, and part of the...
Developer DONTNOD has been pretty quiet on its latest game, Vampyr. The murky, moralistic action game looks fairly promising, but there hasn't been a lot of buzz around it of late. That seems to be changing, however, as publisher Focus Home Interactive has just uploaded a teaser for a new webseries, entitled DONTNOD Presents Vampyr...
Focus Home lays out expectations for title
DONTNOD’s upcoming action role-playing game Vampyr has no DLC plans, as publisher Focus Home Interactive would prefer to start work on a sequel if the title’s a success. The game, which boss Cédric Lagarrigue believes can sit alongside blockbuster titles despite not having a AAA budget, was recently...
Vampyr, the action role-playing game in development at DontNod, has been delayed. Originally due to launch on PlayStation 4 this November, publisher Focus Home Interactive has confirmed that the title is now set to release in early 2018. We've seen relatively little of Vampyr over the last few months, and without a concrete date, a...
And here's a moody trailer
Action role-playing title Vampyr will launch at some point in November, publisher Focus Home Interactive has announced. In it, you play as Jonathan Reid, a doctor who also happens to be a vampire. Naturally, you'll be forced to make tough moral choices as Reid struggles with his vampyric urges. The game's new cinematic...
And you'll need to play cleanly to see one
Dark role-playing game Vampyr is set to release on the PlayStation 4 this year, and while developer DONTNOD didn't disclose a great number of new details at a recent press event, it did reveal that the title will have four different endings determined by the way in which you play. "The sum of your...
Life is strange
Vampyr is one of those rare games that should come with a 'Made for Sammy B' seal of approval. The latest from Life Is Strange developer DONTNOD has a little bit of everything that this author likes: a gothic London backdrop, a sinister storyline, a dash of survival horror, and some enticing gameplay mechanics. Will it be good?...
Someone call a doctor
Vampyr - an action role-playing game from French developer DONTNOD - has always looked promising on paper, but after sinking our fangs into some gameplay footage last month, we're still not totally sold on this often janky looking trip through old London's dingy streets. That said, the newly released screenshots that we've...
Life Is Strange dev DONTNOD has deployed the first 15 minutes of gameplay from horror role-playing game, Vampyr. While this is all pre-alpha footage, it serves as a short introduction to the seedy streets of London, where a pandemic has sent the English capital into disarray. Dr Jonathan Reid, the protagonist, is a troubled soul –...
You'd be forgiven for thinking DONTNOD skipped E3 2016 altogether, with the developer making very little noise about its new game Vampyr at this year's show. However, new footage has been popping up on YouTube, including the clip from IGN we've embedded below. It comprises of pre-alpha gameplay, with Philippe Moreau and Greg Szucs of...
Fangs very much
http://www.dailymotion.com/embed/video/x4fp47t The leaks floweth like the blood from a punctured vein. Vampyr's tasty E3 2016 trailer has appeared online, revealing the curse of life as a creature of the night. The game – in production at Life Is Strange developer DONTNOD – is based upon the 1918 Spanish flu epidemic in London,...
A better look at the gloomy PS4 RPG
It's about time that we got a slightly better look at Vampyr, the promising action role-playing game from Life Is Strange developer DONTNOD. While we'd prefer an informative gameplay video at this point, we won't say no to several new screenshots - even if they're all gloomy as heck. Supposedly, these new pics...
Select press recently received a behind closed doors look at PlayStation 4 gothic horror Vampyr, but fans weren't given any new gameplay footage to feast on. Fortunately, a few precious seconds of off-screen action from the upcoming role-playing release have leaked online – though the quality's not especially great. There's a...
We first heard about Vampyr back at the beginning of last year, and truth be told, we've heard bugger all since. However, thanks to a glut of new information that's spread across the web like an outbreak of vampirism, we've finally got our hands on some semi-decent details. We're thankful, too, because French developer DONTNOD's...
You may have to squint
It's about bloody time that we got a slightly better look at Vampyr - an action role-playing game set in 1918's London. As you'd expect from a title that's all about vampires and a city that's trying to get over the horrors of the first World War, Vampyr promises a dark and morbid looking affair. The only downside is that...
Edward cull 'em
DONTNOD Entertainment may have only just put a period on the first season of Life Is Strange, but it's busy behind-the-scenes working on something a little darker. Vampyr was announced by the Parisian outfit for the PlayStation 4 a little while ago, but the developer's taken to the
Vampyr is currently in the works over at Dontnod Entertainment, but all we've seen regarding the game is some very vague concept art. Fortunately, the developer's released something slightly more tangible: the title's very first trailer. Again, it's more of a mood setter than anything, but it's still the most that we've seen of the...
Bite-sized trailer planned
We first wrote about Vampyr all the way back in January, when it was supposedly shown behind closed doors. Apparently a horror-themed role-playing game, it's being made by French developer Dontnod - the team behind the stylish Remember Me, which released on the PlayStation 3 in 2013. Vampyr certainly sounds intriguing,...
Fangs very much
French developer DONTNOD is pretty busy these days, isn't it? With episodic adventure Life is Strange still in the works, the studio has revealed another project in the form of Vampyr – a horror-themed RPG. Apparently set after World War I, you'll be playing as a doctor who's bitten by a vampiric patient. The premise certainly...
