Dontnod Entertainment E3 2016 Life is Strange Vampyr


If you haven't heard yet, the developer behind Life is Strange, Dontnod Entertainment, is releasing a new game next year called Vampyr. This takes place in London in 1918, the period when the Spanish Flu pandemic is plaguing the city. It follows the story of Dr. Jonathan Reid, a newly formed bloodsucker who is forced to prey on innocent people to survive. This presents a moral dilemma for players as they are torn between the aspiration to save lives as a doctor and the need to stay alive by feeding the monster within.

Just like Dontnod's previous game Life is Strange, you will be forced to make difficult decisions and live with the consequences. It's a game of save or kill, because you have to choose who deserves to die and who should be spared. But unlike Life is Strange, this game will feature action. And according to Vampyr's Facebook page, feeding on people will give you better rewards than engaging in fights. You may obtain skills like combat, persuasion, locomotion and survivability. It's up to you to balance your desire to grow stronger, with your oath to aid your patients afflicted by the flu.

Vampyr will be released in 2017 on PS4, Xbox One and PC. The first trailer has been launched at E3 2016.  Let's take a look at the protagonist's moral plight below.
