The latest game from Remember Me and Life is Strange developer Dontnod Entertainment, titled Vampyr, is set to be released next year. A new trailer for the game was released for E3 2016 this week.
In Vampyr you play as someone dealing with that classic vampire moral struggle: who to kill in order to sate your hunger. The game complicates this already difficult choice further by offering many more experience points to help you level up faster if you feed on those you shouldn’t be.

Vampyr, our new Action-RPG, explores protagonist Jonathan Reid’s moral plight in the E3 trailer. Set in London, 1918, Vampyr promises to offer a unique and deeply immersive experience with a strong and engaging narrative steeped in vampire mythology. The E3 trailer unveiled today introduces the nightmare your hero must live every day now he has become a real monster.
You play as a veteran of World War I, Doctor Jonathan Reid as he tries to come to terms with his transition, and the hunger that drives him to kill. Vampyr includes a unique level-up system that plays on this narrative conundrum, where huge amounts of experience points can be gained by feeding on innocent people, compared to combat. As a doctor, you must decide how many lives must be sacrificed in order for you to find a cure for this “disease”, the ultimate goal of Jonathan.
Taking lives in London is not easy. Killing too many in a district may cause its infrastructure to collapse and turn into disarray. Every single life will also have a butterfly effect on the other NPCs surrounding them; a merchant’s wife could be killed and he could decide to close shop and leave town. Every life you take away will have consequences for the city and the people around them: Cursed be the choice!
Vampyr is set to be released on PC, Xbox One, and PS4 sometime in 2017.
