DONTNOD Entertainment, developers of the upcoming Vampyr, invites fans to their studio for some insight into the creative process behind their upcoming action-RPG. In the first episode of this original weekly four-part webseries, produced and realized by Focus Home Interactive’ video department, DONTNOD unveils exclusive gameplay footage while delving into their signature approach and reasons behind putting players in the role of a predator. The three following episodes of the webseries will release weekly every Thursday.
In Episode 1: Making Monsters, DONTNOD gives more information about Jonathan Reid, the doctor-turned-vampire that players will take control of in Vampyr. Freshly turned, Reid’s condition unveils a dark new reality, thrusting him into a once-hidden society of wretched creatures like himself. Ancient Ekons plot from the shadows, terrifying Vulkods prowl the streets at night, and cursed Skals hide in the darkest places of the city.
Episode 1: Making Monsters
Vampyr is set in 1918 London, with the city weakened by the recent World War I and ravaged by the Spanish Flu. This setting makes up an important part of Vampyr’s identity. DONTNOD will make players feel the duality that torments Dr. Jonathan Reid, giving them the freedom to choose who to sacrifice and who to save. Every kill has consequences, and it’s up to players to balance their need to feed and grow stronger with the rapidly deteriorating city of London
