Vampyr was present this year at Gamescom and Focus sent us 15 minutes of gameplay on the pre-alpha version of the game. What you are about to see here is exactly what we were shown in Cologne. Beware, you'll need a good Internet connection to get the 5.3 GB video from our servers.
VAMPYR AWAKENS WITH 15-MINUTES OF PRE-ALPHA GAMEPLAY FROM THE CRYPT
The past week's Gamescom 2016 has been the perfect opportunity for journalists to discover Vampyr, the Action-RPG from DontNod, the creators of Life is Strange. The press had the chance to attend presentations made by the developers, and thus learn more about the game, its story and its gameplay mechanics.
Investigate the people of London, and peer through their bodies to see the quality of blood that flows through them. Perhaps you find a terrible person who you believe deserves to die, and decide to feed on him. But what if he suffers from poor quality blood? Perhaps a father - with no reason to lose his life - has the purest blood, and will therefore gain you greater experience points... your moral choices will directly affect the game world as you struggle to come to terms with your human/vampire duality.
Taking lives in London is not easy. Killing too many in a district may cause its infrastructure to collapse and turn into disarray. Every single life will also have a butterfly effect on the other NPCs surrounding them. Every life you take away will have consequences for the city and the people around them: Cursed be the choice!
What bothers me most is it truly is creating gambling habits in small kids that also play these games (2 Hours ago)
@KORNdog: exactly, it’s nothing short of predatory. It’s literally using reasearch about the chemical reactions of the human brain to get people to spend more money than they want to (2 Hours ago)
They want you spending hundreds amassing a room full of dollar store garbage while you search out a t-shirt that actually looks like it wasnt designed by a monkey, (2 Hours ago)
I don't like lootcrate/nerd block for the same reasons. Yes you MIGHT get something cool, but that glimmer of hope is exactly what those companies are exploiting. (2 Hours ago)
But obviously thats just a single pay ent pirchase. Pubs want you spending weekly unlocking content you might not not even want or need. (2 Hours ago)
@Nietzsche: i agree. There os no justifiable reason to have the randomised element of loot boxes. The stuff should just be avalible in a store and you pay for what you want. (2 Hours ago)
but I do think overwatch does it in a much less harmful way than most others (4 Hours ago)
