Delaying the release of a project you hold dear is always a tough decision. However, we believe that meeting a deadline should never compromise quality. We were still convinced just a few weeks ago that we would be able to release Vampyr this year. Unfortunately, a technical issue – now solved – has set our teams’ schedule back at the end of the development.
This delay allows us enough time for all the polishing and balancing phase, much needed for a game of Vampyr‘s scope, with its ambitious, semi-open world, its complex narrative and deep RPG mechanics that give players a real impact on the world.
We want to thank our publisher Focus Home Interactive for giving us the means and time necessary to provide players a memorable experience... especially since so many of you are eagerly waiting for it.
Heute erschien zum kommenden Dontnod Titel Vampyr, die dritte Entwickler-Episode.
In der neuen, dritten Episode Human After All werden die Bewohner Londons in den Blickpunkt gerückt. Man sieht wie jeder von ihnen individuell per Hand gestaltet wurde. Hiermit möchte man sie so menschlich wie möglich zu machen.
Da es noch keine Episode in den Thread geschafft hat, reiche ich diese hier gerne nach.
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 vampyr-game.com.
Endlich mal wieder eine neue, westliche Rollenspielmarke! Ich kann mich gar nicht erinnern, wann wir die letzte gesehen haben mit Ausnahme von Pillars of Eternity, und das ist ein isometrisches Rollenspiel. Ich fürchte nur, das Spiel hätte viel besser in den Oktober/November gepasst... Man will wohl großen Releases aus dem Weg gehen, aber trotzdem...
