I'll admit, I hadn't paid much attention to Vampyr before now, but the new story trailer released by Focus may pique your interest like it has mine. The vampire-focused (we say focused, because any game that has vampires will inevitably have werewolves too) supernatural RPG set in London during the interwar years presents players with an interesting twist on the stereotypical "unwitting human becomes vampire and now is faced with the moral conundrum of having to kill to stay alive".
The protagonist, Jonathan Reid, is a doctor and thus bound by the Hippocratic Oath. Or, well, the incorrect but popularized version of it, which boils down to "do no harm".
The story trailer is snippets of what are presumably cutscenes from the game cut together in a way that shouldn't spoil anything while giving viewers an overview of what to expect. It fares better in the first regard than the latter, but it most certainly paints an interesting picture of the game's setting. Interwar London was struck by a bout of the Spanish Flu in 1918, and that serves as the framework for the game's storyline, but you shouldn't expect too much historical accuracy beyond that, as vampires, werewolves, and the religiously-powered hunters thereof take the spotlight.
Dr. Reid, an army surgeon returning home has become a vampire and is caught up in a struggle between the dark, supernatural underground community of London's stranger residents, and the group of humans trying to drive them out. The trailer isn't very clear on what exactly will be the main plotline, but the epidemic, the struggles of the various fantastical beings and a new organized hunt to drive them all out will be the three main themes.
Vampyr will be available on PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One on the 5th of June, 2018. Check out the Story Trailer below:
