Nintendo Switch users can now stalk their prey in the damp streets of London in time for Halloween! Focus Home Interactive and DontNod’s gothic tale of choice and consequence, Vampyr has now found its way onto the platform.

Vampyr takes players to the mean streets of 1918 London during the Spanish Flu Epidemic as the newly-turned vampire Dr. Jonathan Reid. Along with the flu spreading through the city, so has vampirism, leading Reid to investigate the cause of the rise of vampires in the city, the cause of the flu outbreak, and the truth as to what happened to him.





The main focus of the game’s mechanics is choices. Though Reid can hack and slash his way through the city and earn XP to build up his stats, he can meet citizens of London and after learning more about them, players are met with a choice, just leave them be or…prey on them. Though players will receive a lot of XP from feeding on a citizen, the choice may or may not be in your favor.





The game is also an RPG, where players can collect/buy items to make or upgrade weapons and the XP earned through combat or story progression can be used to upgrade Reid’s vampire powers.
