Life is Strange’s creator and developer, DontNod, has announced that its action RPG Vampyr will be delayed from its planned November release, and instead come out sometime in Spring 2018. This delay is the result of a now resolved technical issue, which had hampered the games development. Aw man, I was bloody looking forward to this game as well.
The developer revealed in a blog post that it’s had to delay the game because it ‘allows us enough time for all the polishing and balancing phase, much needed for a game of Vampyr's scope.’
In Vampyr, players take on the role of Dr. Jonathan Reid, a cursed man doomed to life as a vampire. Dr. Reid has sworn to protect the sick, but he also has to maintain his own survival somehow. Life must suck for him. As a pillar of the local community, Dr. Reid must find a way to balance his thirst for blood, along with his mission to protect the poor who rely so heavily upon him.
Our Alice saw the game at E3 2017, and she came away pretty enthusiastic about it, saying that, ‘Vampyr is elegant, but still down and dirty: a well-crafted, delicious slice of extra dark chocolate gateau, served by unwashed hands.’. Personally, I’ll be happy to whack on some grime music, and play my very own London version of Vampire in Brooklyn.
Vampyr will now be released on PS4, Xbox One and PC in Spring 2018.
