Vampyr Story Trailer

Posted on 05 Apr 2018

It’s only a couple of months until we can stalk the streets of a diseased London as doctor/vampire Jonathan Reid. The latest Vampyr trailer takes a look at the story rather than the setting, showing off some of the events surrounding Dr Reid’s transformation into a blood sucker. He’s no Lugosi though, but manages to be quite intimidating in his own right in the new footage. Now, if only there were more of that cover of Don’t Fear The Reaper they use in the trailer.

Vampyr launches 5 June 2018 on PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One.

Official Press Release

Fear the Reaper and dive into a strange new world in Vampyr’s Story Trailer

Vampyr, the upcoming action-RPG from DONTNOD Entertainment, will release June 5 on PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC. The game’s wider narrative arcs are unveiled today in a captivating Story Trailer, brought together with an eerie cover of (Don’t Fear) the Reaper. Returning from the frontlines to a London devastated by war and disease, Dr. Jonathan Reid awakens to a once-hidden world of ungodly creatures, secret societies and vampire hunts.

In Vampyr, you play as Jonathan Reid, a doctor in 1918 London newly-turned into a vampire following his return from the Great War. His convictions blown away, Reid discovers the existence of a dark new world where supernatural creatures and secret societies live together in the shadows… and he is now part of this world.

As a newborn vampire shattered by an irrepressible thirst of blood and thrust into a strange new world, Reid attempts to interpret the supernatural in the best way he knows how: rational thinking. However, between ancient societies, mysterious murders and an imminent large-scale vampire hunt, his scientific assurances are challenged like never before. Driven by a personal desire to learn who caused his transformation and why, Jonathan Reid continues working to find a cure to the devastating disease that decimates its citizens.

But doing so, he must confront his nature as a blood-drinker and the terrible temptation to feed on those he swore to protect…

Vampyr releases June 5 on PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC. Preorders are now available at
