Dontnod Entertainment announces RPG Vampyr

Become a doctor... who becomes a vampire.


Dontnod Entertainment, developer of Remember Me and the upcoming episodic download game Life is Strange, has announced Vampyr, a new RPG published by Focus Home Interactive.

The game is set just after World War I and puts players in the role of a doctor who returns home while the Spanish Flu is going around. He is bitten by one of his patients, transforming him into a vampire.

The doctor will face a number of moral dilemmas within the game as his doctor side tries to heal and his vampire side wants to kill and feed. That said, the game’s tagline is “Take blood. Save a life.”

The production of Vampyr sees the start-up of a second development team at Dontnod Entertainment. The game is still early in development and is planned for release in 2017.
