Get ready to suck blood.
'Life Is Strange' developer Dontnod are starting to lift the curtain on their next project. Called 'Vampyr,' the action role-playing game will take place in 1918 London. Players will take control of Jonathan Reid, a vampire who Dontnod says is looking to "discover the truth behind his new affliction."
Reid will do this by battling foes with a wide range of weaponry, and using his Blood Gauge (built by attacking and dodging enemies) to release powerful attacks. Some of the examples that Dontnod gives of these vampire attacks include "impaling enemies on a spike" and "draining them of blood at a distance."
These skills will be unlocked by using the game's non-linear skill tree, and players will be able to equip abilities that fit their own play-style. This kind of customization carries over to the game's difficulty, as players can make the game easier by feeding on civilians. There are story consequences for doing so, though, so players will have to determine if they will kill the innocent or not.
'Vampyr,' the third game from French developer Dontnod, is set to release in 2017. It's coming to Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and PC.
