Vampyr Released

Vampyr is now available for Windows, Xbox One, and PlayStation 4, offering a narrative-driven action/RPG from DONTNOD Entertainment. The Windows edition is available on Steam, and the recent launch trailer shows off the setting in London a century ago, and the game's protagonist, a conflicted new vampire. Here are more details:
In Vampyr you play as Dr. Jonathan Reid, a famous surgeon and blood transfusion specialist freshly turned into a vampire after arriving back in his home city of London following the Great War. A man of logic and science, Reid’s firm beliefs are turned inside-out upon awakening to a once-hidden world of secret societies, ungodly creatures and ancient orders set upon ending his existence. All the while, London’s population crumbles under the pressure of a terrible disease – and Dr. Reid may be the city’s last hope to stop it.

Everyone of Vampyr’s citizens is part of an interconnected social web, and the fate of one citizen in a social circle will impact all the others, as well as the direction of the narrative. Each citizen has their own story, life and personal goals, some will ask you for help, some will agree to sell you rare items – and every last one can be spared or sacrificed in Reid’s quest. Reid is a vampire, and the fastest way to evolve and unlock new supernatural abilities for combat is by drinking the blood of the living. In Vampyr, it’s not “Do I kill?” but “Who do I kill?”. Deadly encounters plague the doctor’s journey, and each citizen offers a tempting source of power… but there will be consequences.

Each of the four main districts have health status linked with the number of living, dead and sick citizens. By feeding sparingly and keeping the populace healthy with crafted medicines, balance can be maintained. However, if the health gauge drops too low, the district will be lost to supernatural creatures along with every quest, shop and citizen that once lived there. If every district of London falls, the game can still be played to completion, though with an outcome that suits such recklessness. Your actions will save or doom London.

i just skimmed the front page negative reviews at steam. don't like the combat, think it looks janky, "veered into leftist politics" (fucking lol), and complaints that you can't adjust the difficulty - which is true, the game gets brutally difficult if you choose not to feed on people. i love this aspect personally. there's more to being mister good guy than just clicking benevolent dialog options, it's hard and requires discipline and you can always opt out. just murder someone. no big deal, right mister vampire?

i think it's pretty good so far. i got it with the GMG discount myself and consider it money well spent.

the combat isn't very good though. not terrible, not good. just filler. not as mindless as remember me at least.

Tempted to use the 25% off over at GMG for it. Reviews are all over the place though.

I'm having a lot of fun with this game. The combat is somewhat Soulsian with cool powers and varied enemies, the story is fantastic, with strong NPCs and moral choices & lots of investigative dialog and secrets to learn.
