Vampyr Webseries Episode 3 – Human After All

Posted on 01 Feb 2018

Vampyr‘s webseries continues with the new episode, Human After All, which looks at the NPCs around London and how you’ll interact with them as a vampire. Every citizen is unique and will have their own stories and reasons for being out on the streets at night in such a dire time. But here’s the kicker – to get more powerful you have to kill, but killing will result in the story changing, people around them mourning, and you’ll see their final thoughts. The point is to make you think of the NPCs as human and not as “nameless blood bags.”

Vampyr is launching spring 2018.

‘DONTNOD Presents Vampyr’ – Episode III of the webseries asks players what it means to take a life

‘Episode III: Human After All’ – meet the citizens of Vampyr’s 1918 London, and learn how DONTNOD will make you feel the death of each one you decide to feed on

Join DONTNOD Entertainment in their studio once again, for another look into the Parisian studio’s signature creative process behind their upcoming action-RPG Vampyr. Dontnod Presents Vampyr – Episode III: Human After All introduces more exclusive gameplay footage, while focusing on the citizens of London and how each individual has been hand-crafted to feel as human as possible. This is the penultimate episode of this four-part webseries, produced and realized by the video department of Focus Home Interactive, with the final episode releasing next Thursday.

In Episode III: Human After All, DONTNOD reveals how integral each districts citizens are, both in terms of gameplay and narrative. Players will need to gain XP for Jonathan Reid to evolve new powers and grow stronger, but the most lucrative way to earn this is not through quests or defeating enemies in battle. Instead, the most effective way to get stronger is by killing and feeding on the various citizens living within the game’s four districts. Players are able to increase the XP from each citizen, by curing their illnesses and gaining more insight into their lives and emotions – but the price can be immense.

As explained by Stéphane Beauverger, Vampyr’s narrative director, players will hear the dying thoughts of every citizen they choose to sacrifice. This gives a bittersweet poignancy to every death, as DONTNOD wants players to not consider these citizens as nameless blood bags. In addition, each dead citizen will erode the status of the district they belonged to, with too many resulting in the population evacuating districts and causing them to be overrun by Skals and worse.

DONTNOD Presents Vampyr – Episode III is available to watch today, with the final 5-minute episode released next Thursday. For more information, visit the recently-relaunched Vampyr website.

Vampyr releases Spring 2018 on PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC.
