This month, DONTNOD Entertainment and Focus Home Interactive celebrated the 1 year anniversary of their 2018 action-adventure RPG title, VAMPYR. The game originally launched last June and was very well received by its audience. Now, preparing for its possible 2019 launch on the Nintendo Switch, the game is currently offering discounted prices on Steam in honor of the Steam Summer Sale.

Explore a war-zoned London during the early 1980s with Dr. Jonathan Reid, who has been selflessly dedicating his time treating the flu-ravaged citizens of England. But after discovering he has gained vampiric abilities, Dr. Reid is soon dragged into the middle of a supernatural battleground. Now a bloodthirsty creature of the night, will he feed on the very souls he swore to protect?
A fight between Hunters, Undead Skals, and a variety of other creatures has broken out. Many will want you and your kind eliminated. Can you tame the beast within? Or will you embrace this new power you have been cursed with? Help the doctor learn to navigate this new world of power and manipulation. Shape your own vision of the city. Choose your victims. Resist temptation. Your choices will either lead to salvation or destruction.
Add to your VAMPYR experience with the VAMPYR: The Hunters Heirlooms DLC. Gain two additional weapons to your arsenal, each inherited from previous hunters. Take home Dragonbane, the sword of Paulinus Aurelianus (aka the Dragon Hunter), and Barker, the pistol of the Guard of Priwin, Carl Eldritch. Also included is “a dark physician suit, perfect for a vampire doctor who must travel discreetly through London under pouring rain or in the biting cold of the night.”

VAMPYR is playable on the Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and Windows PC. The game is also now on the Xbox Game Pass, for both PC and console. And, as can be pointed out from a 2018 Focus Home Interactive report, the team also announced a 2019 port to the Nintendo Switch.
In Q3, the Group will continue to maximize the potential of the Vampyr license. After the game’s impressive success on PC, Xbox One and PS4, it will be Nintendo Switch’s turn to welcome the DontNod title to reach an even wider audience.
