It’s London during the 1918 flu pandemic and Doctor Jonathan E. Reid struggles with his new affliction no he does not have the flu, he just became a vampire. Players take control of Reid as he tries to keep to his Hippocratic Oath of doing no harm but at the same time, he needs to feed on blood to survive. Players help Reid make decisions which can affect London. Player’s decisions can impact the lives in London by keeping things calm or causing its destruction.
Reid can unlock abilities every time he feeds but he can also complete the game by not killing anyone at all, he just won’t gain abilities. The game will have four different endings that can be unlocked depending on the actions players make. Reid has the ability to turn others into vampires but also have to deal with other vampire classes that stalk London’s streets at night, the aristocratic Ekons, the sewer-dwelling Skals, the werewolf-like vampires the Vulkod, the Nemrod who are vampires that hunt other vampires, and the vampire hunting secret society known as the Guard of Priwen who act as the bosses in the game.
The game is set to be released sometime in 2018 for Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC.
