Vampyr is an upcoming vampire themed action-RPG from Dontnod, the studio behind Life is Strange and Rembemer Me. Once it arrives this June 5th it'll have us take on the role of a doctor trying to cure a deadly plague that's sweeping through London, while also wrestling with a vampiric curse that forces the otherwise noble doctor to attack his fellow humans in order to survive. A rather interesting premise, especially considering how Vampyr seems to be going for a more serious tone.

If you're wondering how all of this will play out in-game, however, wonder no more as Dontnod has now released a decently lengthy and highly atmospheric story trailer. Have a gander, it's quite an interesting one:

I would love to tell you more, especially since I'm genuniely curious myself, but I'm afraid there's not a lot of up-to-date information going around. That said, you can learn a little bit more about the overall lore by heading over to the official website, but don't expect to find much in terms of details just yet.

And finally, allow me to send you off with a fairly ancient gameplay preview. It's from 2016 so chances are the majority of it has been either changed or improved by now, but it should still give you a bit of an idea of what to expect from Vampyr. Enjoy!
