Vampyr Comes to Switch in October
I quite liked Vampyr when it hit PC, PS4, and Xbox One, calling it a “surprise delight” so I was happy to hear it’ll be moving to Switch at the end of October – just in time for Halloween.
If you’re a Switch-only gamer and haven’t had the chance to check the game out, be sure to keep an eye on this one. The story is quite good and there’s a lot of player agency in how things play out, so there’s not a lot like it on the Switch.
Here’s the press release and trailer:
Invite Vampyr in When it Arrives on Nintendo Switch™ on October 29th
Awaken in 1918 London as Dr. Jonathan Reid, a newly-turned vampire. Plunged into a hidden world of ungodly creatures and vampire hunters, you must find a cure for the deadly disease spreading through the city.
As a doctor, you made an oath, but as a vampire, you must feed. Use your burgeoning powers to uncover conspiracies festering in the darkest corners of London. The citizens make up an intricate social web, where the consequences of each life taken will ripple through the city. How far into the darkness will you go?
Vampyr releases for Nintendo Switch™ on October 29. Pre-orders are now available.
Prowl the disease ridden streets in Vampyr – a darkly atmospheric action RPG from the studio behind ‘Remember Me’ and ‘Life is Strange’. Set in early 20th century Britain during a bout of the lethal Spanish flu, the streets of London are crippled by disease, violence and fear. In a completely disorganized and ghostly city, those who are either fools, desperate, or unlucky enough to walk the streets lay prey to Britain’s most elusive predators: the Vampires.
Emerging from the chaos, a tormented figure awakes; as the player it is you who determines how to harness your new powers, by specializing in deadly, versatile RPG skill-trees that change the way you play. As a doctor recently turned into a Vampire, you try to understand your new affliction.
Your quest of intuition, discoveries and struggles, will be filled with death and drama, while your attempt to stem the irrepressible thirst that constantly drives you to take human lives. As you cling to what remains of your humanity, your decisions will ultimately shape the fate of your hero while searching for answers in the coughing, foggy aftermath of the Spanish Flu.
- Explore a darkly atmospheric early 20th century London.
- Play a tormented and powerful Vampire learning the rules of your new condition. A man of science, a beast of the night: Your toughest battles will be within yourself.
- Build your own combat style through a wide range of crafted weapons and powerful Vampire abilities to defeat a large and unique bestiary.
- Choose your fate: moral choices will shape your story. How human could a Vampire be, when he must feed?
