Vampyr is sinking its teeth in for a June 5 release on PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC. From DONTNOD, this new trailer, making sinister use of (Don’t Fear) the Reaper originally recorded by Blue Oyster Cult gives you a look into a London devastated by war and pestilence, plagued by unholy creatures of the night.
One of those creatures makes a meal of Dr. Jonathan Reid’s blood, giving him the gifts of the Vampyr and access to their mysterious underworld. Reid now finds his belief in science and rationality shaken to the core by this brave new world of nightmarish beings, secret societies and vampire hunters. Most troubling is his now natural, insatiable thirst for blood putting untold pressures on his Hippocratic oath.
