DONTNOD Announces Vampyr Release Date

The dark, choice-driven adventure game will launch in June.

Paris-based developer DONTNOD Entertainment has announced that its upcoming action-RPG adventure game Vampyr will come to PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC on June 5, 2018. Previously, Vampyr was slated for a November 2017 release but was delayed to Spring 2018.

Additionally, DONTNOD has released the final video in their DONTNOD Presents Vampyr  web series, titled "Stories from the Dark," in which some of the developers describe why storytelling through video games is more compelling than through other forms of media.

"Stories from the Dark," as well as the three other videos in DONTNOD's web series, are available to watch on YouTube.

In Vampyr, players will prowl through early 20th century London as Jonathan Reid, a doctor-turned-vampire whose beliefs come into question as he learns more about what lurks in the shadows at night.

Vampyr will launch on June 5, 2018, for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC.
