If the tropical weather around the world has you longing for the cold hard cobbles of early-winter England, then French developer DONTNOD hopes to pull you back in with a new Vampyr update this summer. Two modes will be added to the role-playing game imminently, including a ‘Story’ difficulty which will de-emphasise combat and a ‘Hard’ option which will ramp up the challenge.
“The Story mode places a greater focus on narrative, allowing players to experience Dr. Reid’s journey with less challenging combat,” a press release expands. “On the other end of the scale, Hard mode makes combat much more difficult. Players will receive less experience from killing enemies too, forcing them to rely even more on embracing citizens to grow in power.”
