A new trailer for Dontnod’s Vampyr RPG hit today, and it focuses on what people in town are saying about the main character, Dr. Jonathan Reid, as he tries to help those impacted by the Spanish flu. Set in 1918, the doctor has just come home from World War I, and he now faces a greater threat – himself. The trailer shows some footage, while the faceless townsfolk gossip about the new doctor in town.
The people he treats are also his treats, and anyone can become a midnight snack. With every new victim (we would recommend he starts with those that are late on their payments), it will impact the world around him. As the game continues, we would imagine the praise he receives will turn to suspicion.
Dontnod has previously worked on Life Is Strange and Remember Me, and you can see a gameplay video from earlier this year here. We only have a nebulous 2017 release date, but we will be keeping an evil eye on this one.
Just for fun, let us know in the comments who you would recommend he eat first.

Jason became terminally addicted to videogames after receiving the NES at an early age. This addiction grew to include PC gaming and was cemented with the launch of the PS2. From then on, he was afflicted with epic RPGs, tense shooters, and deep strategy games, never becoming skillful, but never able to quit. He continues to play games (poorly) and share his passion for them to anyone willing to listen.
